  3. why do we have to keep clicking

    Why do we have to keep clicking backwards to get back to article #1? Refresh used to do it instantly but you've removed that option. And no, clicking on "refresh" at the AOL logo does not do the same - it only refreshes the page you're on!

  6. The font size in the address field of the browser is too small. AOL tech support says you can't change it.

    Either increase the font size or provide a selection of font sizes such as small, medium, large, and extra large.

  8. The photo with the deformed leg and 4 signs you're going to have a heart attack shows up after I send an email. Please remove it. It is in b

    Horrible ad of a dismembered deformed pops up in my face when I send mail, delete mail or browse. Why can't some genius over there get rid of it? You are torturing us with all the ads, some more offensive than others but all annoying and show bad judgment on the part of aol.

  9. lastpass

    If you use Lastpass as your password manager, you need to leave AOL and open another browser, like Chrome, to log on to another account.

    It would be good to have a Lastpass extension for the AOL browser.

  10. How about ancient geniuses?

    Re: Article on ancient undeciphered objects

    We humans have a tendency to assume that we are the smartest and most talented beings that have walked the Earth. I am not alluding to ETs or supernatural beings having been here. The human brain has certainly evolved, but there is not anthropological; evidence that there was ever a step-function growth in intelligence. In fact, recent discoveries indicate that even the Neanderthal race was quite intelligent. The modern brain appears to be quite old.

    We are also sure that some very exquisite mechanical knowledge in navigation has been lost. Certainly, building arts and…

  11. I hate that picture of the deformed leg that pops up over and over. It is sickening to see it once but 100x!?

    PLEASE REMOVE THAT STUPID PHOTO OF THE LEG WITH AN ELASTIC BAND AND MEDICAL WARNING. IT IS IN BAD TASTE AND ALSO RIDICULOUS BUT NOT IN A FUNNY WAY.It even popped up in the middle of the spam folder after removing my spam!

  14. Browser security

    Today, I went into my Browser Security settings and noticed THEY WERE CHANGED from where I had them set before! No good!

    DO NOT adjust ANY Browser Security settings when CHANGES, OR NEW VERSIONS, of AOL Desktop Gold are automatically installed.

    Changing ANY settings--WITHOUT THE USER'S KNOWLEDGE--is rather bad for "customer confidence," wouldn't you think???

    Thank you.

  15. Terrible Browser: Wasting Time, To Much Going To Other Small Browsers

    Why to many small browsers? Pronto? Zapmenta? Social Scour? Why not just one? That's why I never like Yahoo is the same pattern.

    Get Explorer, or Bin, you people will make us happy
