    • Teach your headline writers correct English

      Lady Gaga did not "break her engagement from" whatshisname. She was engaged TO him and broke up WITH him. The purpose of prepositions is to indicate change, including direction and location. People travel TO a place, arrive AT a place, and leave the place (direct object, no preposition--unless the context is specifying a point of departure on a trip, for ex. "Our flight left from Chicago and landed in Dallas."). They are excited by (cause) or about (future event)--not "excited for" unless empathizing with another person ("You're engaged?! I'm so excited/happy for you!")

        • larger font for mailbox

          Larger font size for the mailbox, listing new mail. It used to be larger before but it seems that after the update and it gives me option to select small, medium and large. Upon selecting large, still its to small of a font size for me. I cant read my email on mail box. Please add XL or XXL font selection.

          • The red number for new mail is much too small and we must strain to see it.

            Please enlarge it. We keep checking for new mail and the number is hard to see.

              • 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?

                • Mew emojis are nice but most of them are too small to use. You can't make them larger using font size.

                  Please make them work with choice of font sizes so we can make them larger.

                  • Browser Related Issue

                    Follow up for the issue that i have reported 4days ago about not being able to utilize and have the reply button for the craigslists.com. Please have it fix as the issue started since 01/27/2019. Please provide me a feedback if possible as this is a work related website for me and it's not satisfying to know that it's available in AOL Desktop Gold. Thanks.

                    • 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.

                        • Windows OS - Alt Key Numeric Codes have stopped filling in email composition field.

                          Windows OS - Alt Key Numeric Codes have stopped filling in email composition field.

                          I frequently use the Alt Key Code characters to impart a thought when corresponding with peers via email.
                          Currently after moving the cursor to the text composition field and pressing the 'Left ALT' key the cursor disappears after the three digit numerical code is applied.
                          I do find that now when the 'Left ALT' key is depressed along with an alpha character that is the first character in the AOL drop down options at the top pf the desktop it opens the corresponding title.

                                My browser is FIREFOX. I recently moved from AOL 9.??? to AOL Gold. In the former I successfully used ADBlock Plus and was pleased with the results. I find that AOL Gold is much like AOL 9.?? BEFORE I installed ADBlock Plus. TOO MANY ADS in Gold. I contacted your support desk and was told that AOL Gold currently does NOT support ADBlock Plus. They suggested I submit this thru feedback.Roy

                                        I still think it is stupid to have picture captions that have to be activated so a damned ad can play where the caption should (used to) be, along the side of the photo. As it is now, if the caption button is activated, part of the photo is lost. STUPID!
