Default Links in mail do not work

Links internal to Yahoo mail do not work under IE8.
Have downloaded & re-installed latest IE8 with same results.
Note the links to Mail Help, Feedback and Contact us also do not work.

If I right click the link no window pops up to allow me to copy the URL so I can not even copy & paste the URL.

Win 7 64 bit OS

This is new problem as of yesterday.

I have disabled Add-ons but none of the add-ons had any effect.

Yahoo provides a version of IE8 that should work with their webmail :

Internet Explorer 8 Optimized for Yahoo! Download

Please give that version a try and let us know if it fixes the problem for you.

and Welcome to Email Questions!

IE8 Optimized for Yahoo is not available foe Win 7 64 bit according to the link.
"The Yahoo! optimized version of Internet Explorer 8 is only available for the following operating systems:
  • Windows XP 32-bit Service Pack 2 (SP2) or higher
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Vista 64-bit
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 64-bit "
Additional info
Links internal to GMAIL email also do not work.
Links on Yahoo home page do work
After loging into Yahoo mail the Mail Help links, Contact us and Feedback do not work.
I have disabled all add-ons in IE8 and links internal to mail still do not work.

If I use Firefox then open Yahoo the links do work.

Bottom line this must be an IE8 problem as the mail sites work under Firefox

How high are your security settings set?

Is your flash player up to date? Does the basic Yahoo site work for you?
