Can only download one attachment per session in yahoo mail

@nvmjustagirl I'm using yahoo mail with chrome on windows and have the same problem. If an email has multiple attachments, and it gives me the option to download all in a zip file, that works, but if I download a single file, it won't download any more until I close and reopen the mail session. I followed all your steps except for part 1 steps 7-9. I can't find where yahoo mail will ask to become the default handler, and it doesn't seem to ask on its own. Any suggestions? thanks

I had the same problem for so long, I bought new computer. Now it's the same on my new computer. For me I just fixed mine just now.
Chrome-settings-Privacy and security - automatic download
(Block automatic download after first file) - Yahoo mail was there being blocked. I remove the block, and it works so far.
Hope this will help.
Hope it stays fixed.

Thank you for the information, tomcha. I never knew such a setting even existed in Chrome. I haven't had a problem with multiple downloads in Yahoo mail when using Chrome, but I was hoping your tip might help me with Opera. Unfortunately, I can't find a similar setting in Opera - if anyone knows of such a setting, it sure seems like that would be the answer!

I found the setting in Opera and it seems to fix the problem.
Settings > Advanced > Privacy and Security > Site Settings > Automatic Downloads.
I found that there was a block for Gmail. I turned on "Ask when a site tries to download ...." and the block disappeared.
It now works.! Thanks, @tomcha!

I follow this thread the last couple of months, having the same exact problem with Opera and yahoo.mail,
I did almost everything i read in here, except the "reset profile" thing, with no success...The problem persisted in all my machines (2 desktops, 1 laptop).
Until... a couple days ago, i read about the "jimihendricks" 's solution...
I thought, i would try it the soonest, but because i was busy at the time, i didn't do it right away...
Yesterday, when i remembered it, and before trying the fix, i checked once again (in my laptop, at home) with yahoo.mail in Opera and...It was fixed...!!!! Without me having to do anything...!!!
And today, the same happened in the office's pc...!! How strange is that?
Did they release an update, maybe...?? because, i had already make all the updates before...
I just wanted to share...
Than you all again, for your contributions!!

@nickfrag That's great, @nickfrag! After I followed jimihendrick's steps, I went to do the same on another laptop, but noticed that on laptop #2, yahoo mail had not been blocked in Opera. I wonder what it was that turned "on" the block on my primary laptop in the first place...

Finally someone figured it out. i stopped using opera Long Ago because of this...incredible no one at opera reads these forums and answers these or has this info in the help file.
so better yet go into privacy and security and under automatic downloads and add Gmail .Com
why on EARTH opera would have this by default is infuriating.....you want peeps to use your browser....why annoy hundreds of millions of gmail users by not letting them download attachments.

@wadebuck My sentiment also. These geeks who design these browser are sometimes out of touch with the reality of regular consumers who just want to the browser to work normally. If we want extra layers of security then it should be up to us to make the effort. I spent so much time trying to solve this downloading bug. Thx for everyone who figure it out.
