  1. Multiple browser Tabs not being highlighted

    While multiple tabs are opened in the browser, only the one that the members are currently on is highlighted, leaving the other tabs that are in the background to be extremely difficult to see and read. The only option to know what is already opened is to access it, which is NOT user friendly. It would also help if the contrast was higher and the colour should be changed to something else than blue. PLEASE correct this error for the benefit of all users!!! Thank you for your consideration.

  2. FIX THE BROWSER U CHANGED TO YAHOO

    WHAT HAVE U DONE TO AOL--U REALLY MESSED IT UP by changing it to Yahoo!! Besides the invalid personal search list that shows, which people are complaining about (uselessly) one cannot just enter a company name followed by .com--it doesn't GO there BUT I can do it on MS Edge!! Are we now supposed to enter a web address the Old Way, with htpp, etc? Also, find that I'll type a name in the bar and it screws up the spelling to a non-existent site. SO SAD--I always LOVED AOL before!!

  6. RETHINK "NEW" BROWSER FUNCTIONALITY/FEATURE RE. FALSE HISTORY

    Desktop Gold Team responded to my issue: Browser/address bar down arrow shows "Search" of sites I NEVER/WOULD search. Told it's a 'new functionality' just released--recent history will show 'the top trending searches from AOL search'--how many searches to an Indiana Funeral Home could warrant it listed in 'top trending searches?' Said 'This is a common feature that all mainstream browsers do.' Really? Why doesn't Microsoft Edge or Google do that--not "mainstream." browsers'? This "feature" could result in someone becoming a suspect in a Crime Investigation or a child/wife/husband wrongly accused of (whatever) because AOL has a "new functionality" that shows…

  7. The auto suggestion on the address bar sucks.

    Leave it as it was--don't want it showing names, topics, etc, that I never searched or care about in my browser!!! Use & PAY for AOL Desktop Gold--!! Don't need to pay for aggravation or for my computer to show places I've never searched!!

  8. Put auto-fill for URLs the way it was before

    Formerly if you just typed the first letter in the URL field the last used would fill in....that was convenient....no more!

  9. Can no longer access files on Google Drive from AOL.

    Recently, I am no longer able to access google drive from the AOL browser. I get a message from Google telling me to update my browser.

    Accessing Google Drive seems like a pretty important internet function. A lot web sites use it to access information.

  10. search history

    Suppose you had one or more window tabs open on the aol desktop. It used to be that when you would click the "welcome" tab, the space in which to type a new URL was blank. This is no longer the case. The AOL software would only try to "guess" previously used URLs when I started typing in the URL space. It would really be nice to have the software work this way again, because the software currently automatically puts an already used URL in the URL space, which can be very distracting. If you give me your direct Phone…

  13. Is aol going to get a faster browser?

    I found that searching for something inside AOL Desktop Gold takes twice as long as searching for something using another browser like Edge. Is AOL going to be upgrading their browsers to go faster?
