    Yahoo! having Third Party Issues...?

    I've used my Google account to sign in to Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football all year, but all of a sudden today, I'm getting this message:

    "Sorry, there was an error. Please sign in again with the same account or a different one."

    Not sure why it would be giving me that? I've tried different browsers (Chrome, IE) and gotten the same response. Any ideas on what to do next?

    Edit: I don't have a Yahoo! account, but it hasn't been a problem using just the Google account until today.

    Re: Computer guys! Help!

    Clear your cache and history and reboot. That fixes 90% of PC issues.

    Re: Computer guys! Help!

    The authorization may between Yahoo and Google may have timed out. I know that you can authorization only is for a limited amount of time unless you specify otherwise.

    There also may be problems between Yahoo and Google.

    As noted above, clear your cache and reboot. I would imagine you will be working within a day at the very worst.

    I am having similar problems. Looks like a problem with Yahoo's use of third-party authorization.

    I did reboot, as well, and that didn't do anything, so it must be what you're saying. Kind of stinks. Hopefully they can get it cleared up.

    Yeah Yahoo has been being weird all day for me. They haven't released any tech statements yet though.
