    This only works if I make my browser over 1200 pixels wide.

    Previously I used Yahoo Mail Cleaner but somehow it stopped giving me back the ad space even though the ads were still absent. You give me the ad space, but my browser has to be over 1200 pixels wide in order to see the mail scroll bars, etc. In other words, it doesn’t expand and contract with browser width. My goal was to be able to use my normal browser width, more like 1000 pixels wide.
