This problem started yesterday out of the blue...
I am able to log on to my att/net email account and use all of the functions except I am unable to load the chat and get signed on. When I click on the dropdown and select available, it says loading chat and then after 10 seconds or so goes back to offline. This is happening in both FireFox 19.0.2 and IE 8.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Last year I had problems w/messenger - email worked fine. Noticed Messenger wouldn't appear in the left panel occasionally.
Fixed when I clicked on my Profile ( it would appear in a new tab in my browser ) then restarted web mail. Seems like there needs to be a "connection" between your Profile and the Web Mail client, which *should* happen when one starts their web mail client.
A quick check - if your profile photo appears on your web mail client, you're probably OK. If not, follow the bouncing ball in the above paragraph.
For me, the problem has not reappeared for quite some time now.

I just attempted to load the chat and it worked just fine. Perhaps this was a momentary issue.
Can you please try again and let us know if you're still having the same issue?

Is this at work or at home? If it's at work, perhaps your employer has changed your proxy and no longer allows chat based programs?

Thanks for the update ksenor.
I'm doing a bit more research on this as it may be something we need to talk to Yahoo about but I'm glad you're able to access chat again!

Same here. It stopped working, then out of the blue started to work again, and now just today stopped working again.
Somewhere, there is a link problem and the in mail shat is not communication with something.
