  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. JUNE 1 FIXES

    sign on problem listed as being fixed in June update is NOT FIXED AS STATED - actually performing worse now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - wake up AOL - just because you repeatedly state that you have fixed problems DOES NOT make it so - now you can merge or close comments on this topic like you normally do - refusing to acknowledge you NUMEROUS problems do not make them go away !!! - this forum has produced only lip service + NO real actions at ALL !!!

  16. Fix AOL Gold's flashing cursor for websites

  17. Make Desktop Gold Sleeker

    Are there plans in the works, or are you working on making AOL Desktop sleeker? It has too big a footprint and is a resource hog; I love using it and how it allows me to organize things, but it slows my laptop (4GB RAM) down appreciably and frustrates, see above. Please advise . . . (please see): https://twitter.com/messages/21103374-87601634

  18. Stop ancillary information

    I clicked to get the information about Angela Lansbury, but instead of getting to her immediately I had to go through a bunch of other people. Well, I didn't bother. I'VE HAD IT WITH THIS BALONEY to the point that I'm ready to get rid of AOL altogether and do without as there isn't anything else on the web as thorough - but I'm sure I'll live.
