  2. Stop destroying the Icons.

    First you destroyed the "smiley face" by giving it a moronic-looking open mouth. A smiley face is a smiley face. This new thing is not. Now I see you've destroyed the cute "wink." It's substitute is overblown and ugly. Are you deliberately trying to destroy aol? Or has aol been gobbled up by just another tasteless megawhatever?

  3. retrieving saved Favorites

    The previous AOL saved Favorites that I could open. When opened, it was a list of all of my Favorites and all I had to do was click on one and the website opened.
    This stupid Gold saves as a FAV file that cannot be opened matter what I try.

    PLEASE GO BACK TO THE GREAT PROGRAM THAT OPENED THE SAVED FAVORITES AS A LIST SO THAT THE WEBSITE I WANT CAN BE OPENED WITH JUST ONE CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!

    I AM GOING TO POST THIS MESSAGE UNTIL YOU MAKE THINGS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. write mail

    It would be convenient when a user has multiple accounts /user names if the "write mail" screen would display the user name currently logged in. Example:
    "Write mail from User1234"

  7. Search mail feature!

    When I search for a particular email address, I want mail "from that one person". I now get ALL the emails that this person was included in, such as in 'group' emails, like my Lions club. Some of those people also send me "personal" emails and I want to be able to search for the one particular email from that one particular person. This is how this "search" used to work and how it SHOULD work. Please switch this feature back to how it was...it is driving me crazy!

  10. Transfer Group and its contents to another AOL ID

    Give us the ability to create a GROUP name with people listed within the group which we can do now.
    Have the ability to share the GROUP and its contents to another AOL user.
    For instance I created a group under my BIZCAM3 and I want to put on my wife's ID also.

    How can this be done?

  11. Bold font color is good - dark and easily read -- on regular type font the color - so faint it is hard to read

    The font on articles other than titles which are a good dark color is extremely light and difficult to read. needs to be fixed- adjusted or something to darken the color of regular type in an article.

  12. lastpass

    If you use Lastpass as your password manager, you need to leave AOL and open another browser, like Chrome, to log on to another account.

    It would be good to have a Lastpass extension for the AOL browser.

  14. Please modify your software to allow the column width for the " Email address" to be at least 2 to 3 times wider. When I receive emails from

    You need the column width to show all of "customer service @ agora financial." instead of just "customer service @ ". I have to move the top of the screen on each email to see who is sending me the email and cannot scan them and delete the trash. It is a waste of time to have to open the column wider each time to read who the Email is from. Thank you for your help.

  15. please remove the extra click to show the details or emails under BCC. It should show up automatically

    everytime i check my sent emails, instead of seeing the details right away i need to always do an extra click to show details.

  19. Importing favorites from a different browser.

    I am not able to import into Desktop Gold my favorites (bookmarks) from Chrome or Internet explorer. It seems as if you use a different protocol than the other browsers.
