  2. why do we have to keep clicking

    Why do we have to keep clicking backwards to get back to article #1? Refresh used to do it instantly but you've removed that option. And no, clicking on "refresh" at the AOL logo does not do the same - it only refreshes the page you're on!

  3. Please keep AOL Browser Updated

    Keep the AOL browser updated so I can use YouTube here.
    You Tube has been giving me this alert lately:

    We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For the best experience please update your browser.

  4. Incognito type browsing option on AOL

    Provide a blind search or browsing option / experience like Google Incognito. I hate to search or open a web page for a hotel or vacation for general information and then constantly get E-mails and pop up ads for that item. This does not happen with Incognito and there is no browsing history.

  5. 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.

  6. mouse button

    I was told over a year ago by your Techs, the mouse forward/backward button issues would for sure be fixed by Dec 2017 and it still has not been fixed and here we are now in mid July 2018. When will the forward/backward mouse buttons finally be working like it used to in 9.7? What is the problem? Mouse buttons work in every browser except AOL Gold. Why has this and everything else that people have complained about for over a year not been fixed yet? Can't the money we pay for monthly fees, pay for some knowledgeable Techs to…

    Several different browsers are listed to use and none of them AOL. Be nice if you fixed this.

  9. Two factor verificaiton

    Two factor verification is becoming a real pain!!! I have to do it several times per week every time Windows or AOL updates. It is wasting my time!!! Nice to prevent hacking, but not at the expense of using the software.

  10. 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.

  11. Stop **** PopUps!!!

    Please Please!!! when reading in the browser a "REDIRECT" pops up and a extremely vulgar ad appears and you cannot go back to what you were reading or looking for! I've asked before but nothing has changed so I'm asking again. If I want to see ***** I will look for it. Can you imagine if a child was looking for info and this popped up???
    Please discontinue this sort of thing!!!!

  14. New mail layout sucks...

    The new AOL owners don't seem to be very concerned about their customers, in fact they're making it more complex. I expect they will re-initiate the old program and charge us to use it. Are we all aware we don't have to pay for service at Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. Why are we paying for the most screwed up of the bunch?

    The Playtika spinning/flashing icon is intolerably distracting and annoying. There is no way to get rid of it while checking email.

    As I mentioned previously, I believe you are at risk for litigation if someone with epilepsy has a seizure related to this inappropriate ad when trying to view their email. If you don't respond, I will be forced to contact the Federal Communications Commission about this problem.

  19. 3rd Party cookies

    AOL Gold apparently does not have an option to block 3rd party cookies. I want that option to protect my privacy. Without it I may cease using AOL Gold and go to other browsers.
