    The Playtika spinning/flashing icon is intolerably distracting and annoying. There is no way to get rid of it while checking email.

    As I mentioned previously, I believe you are at risk for litigation if someone with epilepsy has a seizure related to this inappropriate ad when trying to view their email. If you don't respond, I will be forced to contact the Federal Communications Commission about this problem.

  9. 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.

    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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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 !!!

  15. Favorites

    CompuServe Gold- There are 2 favorites buttons. There is 1 in between Write Mail and Settings. The other one is next to the search bar. 1 of them can be removed. 2 is a little bit superfluous. If there should be a second Favorites button, it should be as a menu dropdown for example "File, Edit, Favorites, etc." like Internet Explorer used to have. Other than that, the program is great.

  18. moving passwords to new PC

    Allow users to add / edit site passwords. I have one issue where password was accidentally deleted. Password manager no longer asks to save said password, and there is no way to manually add it .

    I also, recently purchased new PC, and it is a pain having to go to every site, hoping the password manager will store the passwords. Some passwords are not being stored. Please fix that.
