  1. AOL and Publishing Truthful Articles

    On the Welcome page there was an article today about how you might have household items that are worth thousands of dollars to collectors and you don't even realize what you might have in your home. The article was written by someone named Gur Tirosh.

    In the article, this person said that Corningware pieces are worth big money and that if you have some pieces, you can get thousands of dollars possibly on eBay. I happen to have three pieces of Blue Cornflower pattern Corningware, so I got all excited from what I read. I went to eBay just to…

  2. size of font

    I have AOL on 3 computers. Each one has a different font and "look" to it before I open it. Your instructions say to open READ and go to Mail Options to choose the size of the FONT. Nothing I choose changes the size of the FONT. In the lower part of the box it tells you the FONT NAME and size. That doesn't do anything either. Is that what is expected? Thanks

  3. blocked comments

    At c. 9;50 am in the conversation section of news article"Riot declared in Portland protests after police kill man" A post I made, which is the exact post I've used before under different articles, was immediately rejected saying "Unfortunately, you are unable to take part in this conversation right now as your comments have been blocked too many times."

  4. Toolbar

    PLEASE let us be able to configure the entire toolbar. Not many people use "Finance" and some of the other fixed icons that are on there.

    "Local News" icon does not show any local news. Even changing the location, no news.

  9. Aol desktop icon by system clock

    I have the aol desktop icon by the system clock hidden and I have noticed that when windows boots up, the icon shows up for a few seconds and then goes back to being hidden.

    What is the reason for this?

  11. Update AOL Gold Browser

    AOL Gold browser needs updating. When visiting sites such as ebay, the cursor does not appear in the search bar for the site. Google and Firefox work fine. ONLY AOL Gold has this issue. Paying customers deserve a better product

  13. saving saved messages on AOL on a usb stick from relatives passed away

    I have many messages where family has sent me jokes and messages of love and caring on my saved mail area. I'd like to save them on USB sticks in case AOL stops or won't save messages for us any more. this way my loved ones care and affection and memories won't be gone forever. Can you folks add that link to save them on A USB or disk option?

    Please let us know if you have lost the contacts altogether, or just the groups you had saved on AOL Desktop Gold. And also, let us know if you can see the contacts/groups on mail.aol.com. You can use the Quick Find option on AOL Desktop Gold as well, to search for the contacts by their name/email address.

  19. expand your browser

    Your advice on how to expand your browser makes no sense. Step 1, Open screen you want to expand. You can't open the screen because it says Expand Your Browser. That is the problem. Catch 22.

  20. Quick Find - Select All- Delete

    Hello, I have the most difficult time cleaning out my mail box. PLEASE YOU COULD HELP IN THIS WAY:
    Quick Find:
    Then IF you would ADD these options:
    SELECT ALL:
    DELETE:

    I have to scroll to delete one email at a time..that takes hours that is why I don't do it. I have so many emails that I try to get people to send me messages in other ways. However I could quickly get ahold and manage my mail so much easier if for example:
    QUICK FIND: gnc
    then all my emails that say GNC would come up
    then
    SELECT…
