ii. Click the Security tab.

iii. Click the Go back one page button to return to the previous page, and then click the Reload current page button to run scripts.

2. Open Yahoo mail URL and login using your id and password.

3. A warning message will be prompted that JavaScript is needed to be enabled for using the new Yahoo! Mail. You will also see two options to return to a previous version of Yahoo!Mail.
