Just within the past day or two, whenever I log into Yahoo Mail and click on Inbox, it automatically opens and displays a new tab on top of my Inbox, called "Add Requests":

Annoying new Yahoo Mail Add Requests tab

It is extremely annoying. Does anyone know how to disable this new tab?

Apparently I was signed into Yahoo Messenger. After signing out of it, this tab no longer appears when I log into Yahoo Mail.

  1. Look for "Top Contacts" on the lower, left side of your screen.
  2. If it's a yellow lightning bolt, click on it to sign out.

I don't happen to use Yahoo Messenger any more, so it doesn't matter to me that I have signed myself out. It would be nice, though, if there were a setting to disable this tab.

Or click on the arrow next to you name (top-left corner) and select Sign Out of Messenger. – Alex Sep 9 '11 at 19:55
Also, instead of Top Contacts you might have Online Contacts. – Alex Sep 9 '11 at 19:56
