I am not sure since how long i have been using Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 BETA. It’s been long now. But till today it was such a pleasant experience with this wonderful Yahoo messenger.
Today, i was chatting with a friend and all of a sudden, i was signed out from messenger. Well no problems. Has happened before also, wasn’t a big deal!!! So i clicked again on the sign in button and within two seconds i was back online! But this time there was a big problem.
I cannot see any contacts. I cannot add any contacts. It’s a messenger window totally blank, totally white! My friends and Y! messenger buddies can contact me via IM and i can reply to them. But the messenger list is absolutely empty. Anyways, since i needed to contact someone in emergency, i had to manually do so by pressing Ctrl+M and then chose the contact and then chat with him. There is no other way i can see who is online and it’s so damn difficult to contact someone.
I have attached the image showing my present messenger.
Anyways, i searched for it in Yahoo! answers and Google! Many are facing this problem indeed. But there is no solution on the whole world wide web. Some suggested that they downgraded it to Yahoo Messenger 8.1. Well, i tried. Now running the 8.1 messenger, i do see my contacts. But whenever i send an IM, it shows a blank window. No matter what you type, nothing goes past it. Tired of searching for all possible solutions, i just upgraded it back to Yahoo Messenger 9.0 BETA. Problem still remains. Solution still does not exists for me.
Anyone, anywhere, anytime…If you do have any solution for this, then please let me know. And i need Yahoo! messenger. Please do not suggest Trillian or MSN or such service!
Also if you’re facing similar problem, then join my Gang. which apparently does not exists!
