Yahoo! Account: Real first name displays; not Yahoo nickname
As of 11 May 2017, after logging into my Yahoo!account, my actual first name displays for posts on Yahoo!
sites and not my Yahoo! nickname, which has displayed previously. What is going on? I prefer to use my Yahoo!
nickname for privacy reasons. I have gone to my Yahoo! account settings and my chosen Yahoo! nickname is diplayed there.
I even changed my Yahoo! login password, today (12 May 2017) in case there was some security breach. I see my Yahoo! nickname displays when I have logged into the Help Community.
I did go back into my Yahoo! Account, deleted my Yahoo! nickname and then entered it again and Saved the transaction. Theb, I shut down my browser (Firefox 52.0.2), ended my Internet connection, and restarted my computer.
When I logged into Yahoo! after all that, my problem seemed resolved. However, I experienced the problem again today (13 May 2017.) I went through the steps I did the other day, but the problem of my Yahoo! nickname not displaying continues.
I posted all of this in the Yahoo! Community Forum for Account and Sign In > Manage Your Account Settings. So far, no one else has posted a solution.
I am posting on Pissed Consumer in hopes someone with Yahoo!who knows how to fix this problem (something with a program, perhaps?) will see it and get a fix installed.
