    After I login to AOL Desktop gold the AOL system is hanging and unresponsive for about 30 seconds before it becomes responsive again. Also when I click on read e-mail the AOL desktop system becomes unresponsive again and hangs for about 30 seconds before email displays. It does not appear the e-mail has been refreshed. ALso when I open an email to view the contents and then close the email, the email inbox listing screen contents is wiped and not refreshed automatically after it is overlayed with another window. I have to click on read email again to be able…

  2. wild card NOW!

    Stop screwing around! You once had the ability to use wild cards to block similar spam addresses. Either bring the wild card back, provide an explanation why it can't be done, or everyone PO'd by AOL's foot dragging should go to another ISP!

  3. Please change Desktop Gold so that I can clear All my browsing history including anything from AOL

    I believe in the "If its not broke...do not fix it" so my idea is for your engineering techs to take it back to what it was so that when I want to clear my browsing history everything goes away. I delete it by going to Settings then Privacy and then clear footprints and it ask for me to clear foot prints now. Up until a few days ago when I did this there would be nothing left in the search bar. Now there are 5 things there that are all aol and no matter what I do they will…

    The items you are seeing are actually being populated from your favorite places items. We received a lot of feedback from users that wanted to see the URL bar suggest items from users favorite places when they were typing. 


    That said, we understand the confusion of being able to see items in your browser URL drop down list after you have cleared your browser history, so we are making steps to correct this in a future release so that after you clear your browser history, you will no longer see any items in the URL drop down list. 

  4. browser tabs

    I would like to have the ability to pin and re-arrange browser tabs.

  9. Feedback

    Thanks for adding extra keystrokes when deleting mail with your last update. Now I have to verify that I want to delete a msg., and again when I permanently delete it. Ever think of trying a beta test on new updates to iron out bugs before unleashing to the general population?
