  1. Sign On and then Reboot to have mail and favorites show each time I open Gold

    Ofter opening Gold, sign on pops up, check save password, auto sign box, Gold opens but no personal items like mail, favorites, etc. Reboot my PC, then go back signing on, checking boxes, everything comes just fine. Then if I log off, which I won't until tomorrow, back procedures.

  6. New mail layout sucks...

    The new AOL owners don't seem to be very concerned about their customers, in fact they're making it more complex. I expect they will re-initiate the old program and charge us to use it. Are we all aware we don't have to pay for service at Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. Why are we paying for the most screwed up of the bunch?

  7. Remove your block on conservative websites. It is not your place to block where i go after i have acknowledge your notification

    Remove your block of conservative websites because you don't agree with what they post. its ******** that you warn there might be objectionable items or stories there then even block the "proceed' choice also. It is NOT your place nor right to determine where on the net an adult can browse. I am 58 years old and am quite capable of choosing what i see on the WWW,

  9. Incognito type browsing option on AOL

    Provide a blind search or browsing option / experience like Google Incognito. I hate to search or open a web page for a hotel or vacation for general information and then constantly get E-mails and pop up ads for that item. This does not happen with Incognito and there is no browsing history.

  11. 3rd Party cookies

    AOL Gold apparently does not have an option to block 3rd party cookies. I want that option to protect my privacy. Without it I may cease using AOL Gold and go to other browsers.

  12. Stop **** PopUps!!!

    Please Please!!! when reading in the browser a "REDIRECT" pops up and a extremely vulgar ad appears and you cannot go back to what you were reading or looking for! I've asked before but nothing has changed so I'm asking again. If I want to see ***** I will look for it. Can you imagine if a child was looking for info and this popped up???
    Please discontinue this sort of thing!!!!

  15. 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.

  18. 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…

    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.

  20. 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!
