    i have experienced that before and this is what i did:

    open preferences for YM
    choose connection, then if your IP has set a firewall for you, choose the behind the firewall mode;

    if not choose the default setting.

    g'luck!

    i think this is due to the video server of ym.. if your into video calls, i suggest that you just use skype, anyway, its still free and the video quality is better on skype..

    thanks for this. my problem was different, YM intermittently got disconnected. It was so annoying so i opted to use meebo or ebuddy for chatting.

    after reading this thread, i checked my preferences for YM and change the settings to default. my YM is now working fine.

    I have this problem with YM since Day 1. Whether old or new version. Sometimes it really irritates me.
    After installing iLife'09, Yahoo became more sluggish. Doesnt respond to clicks. I have to quit all other apps for it to work again.

    Tried to search for other YM problem threads. Will just post here, different YM problem.

    When I log in, the window gets stuck in the logging in screen, the one with the spinning icon. I'd be able to see people logging in and out (the notification on the upper right part of screen) and I'd receive messages but I wouldn't see my friends list.
