Buttons don't work when clicked in Yahoo Mail

If your "Send", "Forward", and "Reply" buttons, or any of the Yahoo Mail Rich Text toolbar buttons aren't working properly, it could be related to your browser. You can fix this by updating your browser and checking your browser add-ons or extensions aren't causing conflicts.  

Fix non responsive buttons

Make sure you're using the latest version of your browser.

Disable your brower's add-ons and plug-ins to get your buttons working again.

Rich text toolbar workaround

If the buttons on your rich text toolbar aren't responding, you can switch to the plain text toolbar as a temporary workaround. 

  1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
  2. Click Compose.
  3. Click the double arrow button (<<) at the right side of the formatting toolbar.
  4. Click OK to enter plain text mode.
  5. Compose and send your email.

  Don't let problems on a computer keep you from your email. Download the Yahoo Mail app for iOS and Android devices. It's the easy, convenient way to stay connected to your mail and more.
