How To Remove Yahoo Mail News Feed Button And Jumping Numbers

Please note that this post is over a year old and may contain outdated information.
Yahoo added a News Feed button recently to the Yahoo Mail inbox, which has jumping notification numbers that pop up when there's something new in the feed. Here's an easy way to get rid of the number notifications, or the whole News Feed button if you want.


Don't Have an Ad Blocker?


To block these from showing up, 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 either Chrome or Firefox. Any one that supports the AdBlock Plus filter syntax will work.


Custom Filters


Add the following filters to your ad blocker custom filter section:

To just remove the jumping number notifications without removing the news feed button, add this one filter:

##.newsfeed-msg-badge
To remove both the number notifications and the news feed button, add these two filters:

##.nav-item-newsfeed
##.newsfeed-msg-badge

Here is the result:

Yahoo Mail No News Feed
