Re: [Rant] Comcast - worst web e-mail on market bar none - WHY OP,
It sounds to me like you have more going on there than just some lousy web mail. I've used Comcast's web mail pretty much since it's been around and I've never seen the problems you are experiencing.
First if you are using Internet Explorer, cut it out. Abandon it for a better browser. If you have a browser like Firefox, install ad blocking pluggins such as AdblockPlus. I didn't even know there was advertisements, on the Comcast webmail page until you mentioned it.
If you have any tool bars, search bars, internet "accelerators" or internet "helpers", emoticon backgrounds etc --disable or remove them.
Run a check for spyware. Something like Malwarebytes.
Make sure your antivirus is up to date and run a deep scan.
FWIW I agree with the other posters, web mail is probably the most annoying and least powerful method of managing your mail. My desktop machine runs MS Outlook which manages my various email accounts - I only use web mail with mobile devices.
