  2. Why does the search box at the right of the home screen go to full screen by itself? Needs to be fixed.

    I don't have a fix, that is your job. Perhaps if you put it back the way it was previous to this display change.

  4. drive

    When I click on a google drive link in an email, the browser can not open it, and it says the browser is out of date, even though my app is up to date. Also, I think it would be great if you could add extension capabilities to the browser so I could have the last pass extension already in the browser when I use it. Thanks!

    AOL GOLD causes my FACEBOOK to act in a strange way. I used MICROSOFT EDGE and the FACEBOOK works perfectly??? Guess I'm going to give up on AOL unless they can get this fixed.

  8. Automatic open

    AOL now automatically opens the next email. This is dangerous, as it could be spam, etc. We need a way to turn this off, or I am off AOL for good.

  11. What Does GMME Stand For?

    If you're a beta tester, then you'll be using beta client software. The opt-out of beta to drop back to a GA release is to enter AOL Keyword "GMME". What I'd like to know is what does GMME stand for?

  12. Opening up news topics

    Why do I have to click on a headline 3-4 times before the headline opens up? I have a new and fast computer. This issue is 100% AOL. Are you updating your old and aged system?

  14. mail updates

    I just talked to tech support to untangle a problem with email i had put on my block list a couple of addresses by mistake and wanted to unblock those addresses tech support walked me though it and had to use another browser to unblock because AOL is in the process of updating their software to make things easier why not update everything all at once? is should be when i need to untangle a mess i could untangle it through AOL and not going the round about way that i didn't know of Norman Kivari member since 1995

  15. It's not the mouse batteries, IT'S YOU.

    Every time I'm to click the mouse button I have to click it several times before it will connect. Sometimes it will just flip to an entirely unrelated page and then it's impossible to find what I was looking at. What are you doing at AOL these days? You have a lot of people working for you. Why can't someone get this web site right?

  17. Issues still present in aol desktop gold

    There are still issues present in aol desktop gold.

    1) Icons are missing from under safety all the way to help. This only affects computers that have an amd processor.
    2) videos still play on auto on the welcome screen.
    3) No manual update for check for updates.
    4) The software causes my hard drive light to stay solid for a good 10 minutes before turning off.

    There may be other issues present still, but these come to mind.
