Cannot Write, Respond or Forward Yahoo! Email with Google Chrome

Cannot Write, Respond or Forward Yahoo! Email with Google Chrome JZM 1/12/09 2:11 PM
Suddenly, starting today (01/12/09), I am unable to respond to or forward or create new mail in Yahoo! email using Chrome 1.0.154.43. When I do one of these actions, the header (which includes: To, Cc, Subject, etc.) won't load. If I click on another Yahoo! mail tab and then return to the tab where the header wouldn't load, it will appear as loaded, but then I cannot type any text in the body of the email. The cursor just won't show in the body of the email field and none of the keys or letters typed (when attempting to type) show. I am, though, able to type in the To, Cc and Subject fields in the header after I flip back and forth on the mail tabs.

This may have been answered, but the threads on Yahoo!/Chrome issues have gotten so convoluted that I cannot figure out if there is a solution available. Any help would be appreciated since I don't want to go back to FF or IE. Thanks.

same goes for me with hotmail.com
i can select messages but cant do anything with them.

furthermore some of the features on unibet.com don't work. try playing online blackjack or just something that requires a popup.

i've already installed the recommended java version. no difference.

some help would be appreciated since workint with two different browsers at the same time is quite annoying.

There's a few threads on this. I have the same problem. Re-installling Java, or deleting google cache did not help

I also made sure I have the newest version of Java installed (Version 6 Update 11), as well as cleared out all of the cache.  I also tried re-installing Chrome with zero change in the issue.  I didn't uninstall first, though.  I don't want to lose all of my browser settings like saved passwords.  In the mean time I have been using Yahoo! Zimbra desktop to manage my Yahoo! mail, but Zimbra isn't without it's annoying quirks.  So, nothing I have tried to fix the issue has worked.  :(

Well, with Yahoo clearing the browsing data and waiting a half hour or so DID help me.

JZM, I didn't have to delete my saved passwords - I just unchecked that option.

I'm now having the problem on Hotmail and none of the solutions is working.

No, I meant I didn't want to uninstall Chrome and then reinstall in fear I would lose my passwords.  I have cleared my browsing data (all but passwords) and it hasn't worked.  Ho hum.

Same problem and very disappointed. I switched away from Firefox because all of a sudden I couldn't read my Yahoo mail with it; now I can't reply to my Yahoo mail with Chrome. However Firefox is working with Yahoo mail now so I guess I'll switch back.

I have the same problem. with Chrome 1.0.154.43 I cannot write mail using yahoo. I can use other browsers, but I would rather use chrome.

I am having the exact same problem, I have cleared the cache, reinstalled java and restarted chrome. I was starting to enjoy using Chrome however due to this problem and the fact that the browser has crashed several times in the past two days I am going back to firefox.

I am also having the same problem, I recently switched from firefox to chrome and liked and would like to continue to use Chrome itself. But since then I have problem of accessing my mails, I can't reply not view the mails. I don't want to switch over but looks like I have to move back to Firefox
