The new site accepts log in and shows me as logged in but kicks me back to the sign in page when I try to acces to portfolios. Tried on Chrome and Safari, cleared and rebooted. Anybody else?

@ibroxlee - this is an older thread. I'll close it out and respond to your other posting.
Same. Logged in as far as email is concerned, but My Portfolio won't show anything in the dropdown box...even after logging in again at that location. Returns me to Finance landing page. Tried on Chrome and IE 11
I have had the exact same problem... I pulled my hair out for over 2 hours yesterday on this.
I have had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM on both my brand new Windows 10 laptop, as well as on my 2 year old Windows 7 desktop PCs.
I have also tried it today at work on a Windows 7 desktop, and Windows 7 laptop, all to no avail.
I have had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM on 4 different PCs, regardless of which web browser that I have tried to use on ALL FOUR of the PCs: regardless of trying this on Mozilla Firefox (version 47.0.1); Internet Explorer (version 11.0.9600.18314), or Google Chrome (version 51.0.2704.103 m).
I have tried EVERY SINGLE HELP suggestion offered in the fully automated world of YAHOO FINANCE / YAHOO HELP.
I even tried contacting YAHOO's corporate offices for Media relations & Press relations, but their automated message system spelled out that the ONLY form of help that Yahoo "members" will get, is automated.
There simply is NO way to reach a YAHOO employee!
So how is anyone supposed to use the MY PORTFOLIO service if no one can log into from a laptop or desktop computer?
PLEASE DO NOT suggest that I can access it from a "smartphone" -- I have never owned a smartphone -- the screen images & type fonts are simply too small for my 62 year old pair of eyes. DESKTOP & LAPTOP machines have much bigger images that i can readily read & understand.

Same problem. No problem logging in to yahoo mail but when i go to yahoo finance it asks me to sign in (never had to do this....EVER). I click to login, enter my password and something downloads to my computer and it won't let me login. I click the next button (after entering password it goes into continious loop(after downloading something to my computer).
Why can't someone at yahoo fix this? I spent 10 years entering data into yahoo finance and its either gone or yahoo wont let me access. Do they not know the problem? Traffic at the wesite has had to drop-off exponetially since the new yahoo finance was rolled out. Change is only good if it improves things. Why not admit it was a colossal failure and go back to old yahoo finance. For all i know, i download a virus trying to login to yahoo finance. Execs at Google must be laughing hysterically!
It is amazing they release an "upgrade" that doesn't work. I was able to get my portfolios working from Internet Explorer, but I get that awesome "Yahoo Engineers are working to resolve the issue" when I try to go to a portfolios page from Chrome. I hope these clowns fix this -- they really should be embarrassed.
Same problem! Many years' worth of research in my portfolios -- now useless, because I cannot get logged in. Come on Yahoo: fix it, or at least give us the option of returning to the old Finance page.
I doin't know what they have done - they re-set the email account that my account had been associated with for years to a yahoo mail account. I had to verify all of that and when I did, it recognized me but not my portfolio. I have been on Yahoo Finance for years and have entered many stocks there for several reasons. From what I have read, Yahoo did something, I cannot get the help I need and I've had it with Yahoo! You all know how frigging frustrating this is..... So much for trusting websites to keep information ---
I have the same problem also. And if I manage to get to one of my portfolios and want to switch to another one it asks for sign in again....but the sign in doesn't work!
Does anyone have a solution???
I have been unable to access my Yahoo Finance Portfolio or Watchlist for a week.
There is apparently no way i can speak to a Yahoo representative by telephone to fix this problem--- i can find no contact point, either for an email or a phone contact. if this is not resolved in 2 days, i will switch to Google Portfolio, and never use Yahoo again. the affirmative Yahoo plan to avoid/prevent any direct communication with its customers is UNACCEPTABLE> TKenny. ***Phone Number Removed***.
