Full Answer

To set Yahoo as a homepage in Mozilla Firefox, one would go to yahoo.com so that it is displayed in the Web browser. The tab should then be dragged and dropped to the Home button displayed on the right side of the Firefox tab. A prompt should appear asking if Yahoo should be set as the home page. The user should then click Yes.

Other home page options include setting the home page back to default, or choosing a blank page as the start screen. Firefox can also be programmed through the Options tab to display all of the tabs and windows that were open the last time that Firefox had been used.

To set Yahoo as the home page in Internet Explorer, one would go to Tools in the task bar, followed by Internet Options. A tab should be showing that says General. In this tab, a user can enter the URL that they would like to be their start page. In this case, they would enter www.yahoo.com into the URL line.

    How do you delete a Yahoo ID?

    A:

    To delete a Yahoo ID, you need to close the Yahoo account. Yahoo keeps the account available for 90 days before it is closed for security reasons. However, the account is considered deactivated during that 90 day period, and it cannot be accessed unless the user specifically reverses the account closure. After 90 days, the account, including the Yahoo ID and all information and subscriptions related to it, is permanently deleted.
