  1. EXPIRED PATIENCE

    I NO LONGER READ "CONTENT" ... SIMPLY, AS A RESULT OF DISGUSTING ADVERTISING... I MAY SOON BECOME A NON-PAYING SUBSCRIBER

  2. Fix AOL so that there is not a long delay for sign on.

    Fix AOL so that there is not a long delay for sign on. It is currently taking as much time as old dial up sign on.

  3. Fixing the "save as" Option

    It would be extremely helpful if the graphics that are embedded into emails would save with the file name that was used to embed them. At first everything in AOL Gold had a number assigned to it. Now it seems that no matter what, the word "thumbnail" comes up. Belonging to a graphics list as I do, I save many of the graphics I receive in the email. It's extremely frustrating to try to come up with a name for everything instead of having the name pop up when we right click and chose "save as". Aol used to be…

  4. picture editing options

    Will you PLEASE fix the picture editing options in email. Except for rare occasions when it's available, there is generally no way to access it. It used to be a simple right click.

    This is ridiculous. AOL worked better when it was free. I've been waiting years for you to fix it.... so JUST ]FIX IT before I move my mail to another server and delete the entire app!

  10. Very poor customer service

    Your customer service is appalling. After 12 tries I could not change my AOL password on line. The customer service rep refused to fix the problem unless I gave her information I couldn't possibly have (date I last paid for useless AOL benefits, amount AOL charges me, etc.) unless I was allowed access to my AOL account, which is why I called in the first place. It isn't her fault: Your regulations are more than absurd, they're punitive. After decades at AOL I'll be thinking hard about getting a new service that doesn't treat users this badly.

  11. China

    Why is AOL kissing China's and nuts. China is screwing America and AOL defends them and is too **-whipped to acknowledge that the virus came from China and it is their fault. YOU SUCK at news and YOU SUCK as an American business. You are Socialists and do not belong in American discussions or news outlets. By the way YOU SUCK.

  12. blasted ads

    While trying to read Trend chaser, a damned video ad kept popping into the lower corner of the pic. How in the **** do you think a person is supposed to read (enjoy) the material when there is constant distraction. Maybe the younger folk can manage, but this older folk can't.Ads are one thing, but these friggin video things that keep invading the space are annoying...VERY ANNOYING. Get rid of them.

  13. you need to greatly increase the size of a file you are allowed to send in an email. 25mb is to small .

    increase the size of file attachments in emails so you do not need to send 4 emails to send one file or video... 25mb is way to small and tech service offers zero support or justified reason for the limit.

  15. My husbands aol.com account is not in my spam controls and yet suddenly I am not receiving/or it is sent to spam when he emails me.

    My husband's emails that he sends or that he cc'd in, is going to my spam. And his email address is not listed in my spam controls. I talked to the aol tech support and they told me it's some kind of glitch and they can't do anything on their side and that I should send this feedback for help.

  16. Bad news

    AOL is Anti-American and has no right to include America in its name, It appears to be a Chinese Propaganda organization supported by left wing socialists. AOL sucks and Americans should boycott the piece of trash. Huff Post is a sick person and a sick organization. AOL SUCKS

  17. Clicking "Next" numerous times to finish reading an article

    TO: AOL....you may have good stories, but I don't finish reading them for the mere fact I have to keep clicking, "Next" twenty times to finish one article. After the the fourth or fifth, "Next"...I stop reading the article and go to something else. All the clicking of "Next" is annoying and tiresome and takes away from the flow of reading. I suggest you just put the article in the normal format and leave out the constant clicking of "Next" just to finish reading the article.

  18. SPAM Handling

    Bring back the old handling of SPAM! I can no longer unsubscribe or read something before I decide because you disabled the links. If I move them out of SPAM they go to 'old' and can be hard to find. You are helping the people sending SPAM!

  19. The email "suggestion" is keeping me from typing in a correct email address

    In a nutshell, get rid of that automatic hint on the email name you are trying to type. All the ones that are showing are ones no longer in use. AND the latest problem is there's one that had an error in it and it will NOT allow me to create the email address I'm really trying to type. If I type the email address and hit either Enter or Tab, it superimposes mine with the bad email address in your hint or "suggestion".

    I've asked if that can be turned off and was told it cannot (back before I…

  20. CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess

    I have gotten now a few times when I sign onto AOL Gold:

    Windows Defender Firewall has blocked some features of
    CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess on all privat networks.

    Name: CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess
    Publisher: AOL
    Path: C:\users\xx\appdata\local\aoldeskto\app-11.0.2664\

    cefsharp.browsersubprocess.exe
    

    Allow cefSharp.BrowserSubprocess to communicate to these networks:

    (Has a check box to check) for Private networks,
    

    such as my home or work network

    Has "Allow access" or "Cancel" buttons.

    Do we put in a check and or allow access or do we cancel ?

    Thank You
