All of a sudden Yahoo mail has transported me to Romania. I don't think I did anything to initiate that transformation. I'm glad I don't use Yahoo much anymore, but prefer other providers, such as Gmail and gmx. That's easier than taking a Romanian language course. [emoticon]

In your browser, click on "Tools" which is usually at the top of the screen.
Click on "options"
In there, you should be able to change the default font.

Hang some garlic around, Vlad the Impaler was Romainian.


2015 GMC 2500HD SLE Z71 DCLB It's got a cop motor, a three hundred and sixty six cubic inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters, so it'll run good on regular gas.

It's possible you accidentally switched the settings?
Do you use a VPN? If it got routed thru a Romanian IP address, it will often try to jump to the local version of the page. It's not a yahoo thing, google and other pages will do the same.
Wouldn't hurt to run a virus scan then change the password. There is a chance you were hacked.

A quick check: We travel a lot and it's annoying to get the local page so we changed the book mark to "US.yahoo.com" That will force you to the us version. If it's still in Romanian, it's a setting issue.

Well, today it's back to English again after a few days of Romanian. There was no input on my end.
