Old Yahoo classic email with a new annoyance
Good ol' Yahoo email has been running on my old XP desktop for eons with essentially no issues. It's also now running on a fairly new Win7 laptop, but with an annoyance.
When I scroll down to read a message on XP and then delete it, the screen automatically goes to the top/beginning of the next message. When I do the same on W7, the screen displays the word "Loading" with a moving ellipsis (i.e. Loading...) at the top edge of the message screen and just sits there without auto returning to the top of the next message. The next message is displayed, alright, but I have to manually scroll up to see it.
Both machines use Yahoo Mail Classic (I haven't switched), and I have only one Yahoo email account, so they both access it, use the same settings, and see the same messages.
Has anybody else seen this?
What web browser(s) have you tried?

Yahoo Mail's Continuing Weirdness
:mellow: ehorwitz1: The problem disappeared as Yahoo continued to meddle with their email interface for the past year or so. Of course, every problem they "resolved" seemed to introduce another, and that's still going on! What their systems people are doing is beyond me... sorry I can't be more specific.
:mellow: DavidHLevin: The behavior I described was seen using the most recent version of Firefox, which is still my favored browser. I have looked at a couple of the newer ones but dropped them for not supporting RoboForm. I use IE6 on my XP desktop only for a specific app; I have IE11 on my W7 laptop, but only use it in case of emergencies.
:mellow: cmptrgy: I have had the preview pane shut off since it first became available. On my Yahoo client, Preview Pane on/off is found by clicking the gear icon at the upper right, then Settings.
