  1. Before, I could click on search bar and it would turn blue

    and I could press delete and put in my new search item. NOW, with GOLD, this no longer happens, forcing me to delete the contents of the search line. More inefficiency, more steps. This goes on and on if you read the feedback on here. Why?If I click on it now, if SOMETIMES turns blue and then it disappears. Useless.

  2. clearing history wont work

    the tab in EDIT-SELECT FOOTPRINTS TO CLEAR-DOWNLOAD HISTORY-- does not highlight so now i cant clear the sites i have visited.
    Example: craigslist cities highlight each time i go to one, that's how i know what one i was in, and the same for each topic, antiques, collectibles etc and then each item i view,,
    now i cant clear the highlighted name as i could in 9.8.. so keeping track of all the places is impossable,,, i have to go to internet explorer to do it each time,,
    Bring back this feature, in the edit, button.
    Why do you change…

  3. AOL Gold does not allow me to save emails on my C drive in sub-directories for efficient organization - my AOL 9.8 allowed me to do this.

    Talking to 3 AOL representatives, I was told this function is not available in AOL Gold. I respectfully request that this previous function to drag emails to subdirectories on the C drive be installed in AOL Gold.
    The work around entails coping each email (a two step process) to a text file, and then copying that text file to the C drive subdirectory that would also then have to write a heading for the text file with date and sender name. That is not efficient nor acceptable.
    The AOL saved on my PC is encripted and can only be opened…

  16. Fix E-mail so that attached documents do not appear/print as a continuation of the e-mail text.

    Previous AOL provided for an e-mail text with an attached document to be opened/read/printed separately. Now, the attachment appears as a continuation (in large font) of the e-mail text. This is an undesirable feature and needs to be corrected.
