Yahoo recently started displaying a large advertisement for their Chrome extension when you try to access your Yahoo Mail inbox (mail.yahoo.com). This advertisement covers the entire screen, and is shown when you first access Yahoo Mail and are using Chrome.

How to Remove It

This will remove both the ad and the large semi-transparent black background.

Don't Have an Ad Blocker?

To block this annoying advertisement, you'll need an ad blocker extension or plug-in for your browser. If you don't already have one, you can get one from your browser's extension/plug-in page. I recommend ┬ÁBlock Origin for Chrome and AdBlock Edge for Firefox. Any one that supports the AdBlock Plus filter syntax will work.
