  2. 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.

  5. PLEASE, PLEASE , PLEASE FIX "THE BASICS"

    FIX THE BASICS AOL GOLD IS WORST PROGRAM I EVER USED. I BEEN USING COMPUTERS SINCE 1987.

    1.) SAVE DRAFT SHOULD SAVE THE ORIGINAL DRAFT ONLY
    "1 TIME" IT SAVES MULTIPLE COPIES.

    2) COPY, PASTE, CUT, UNDO, SPELL CHECK WORKS ONLY 50% OF TIME.


    1. BROWESER EDIT WORKS 50% OF TIME


    2. IT TAKES 4-10 CLICKS FOR EMAIL TO OPEN SOMETIMES IT FREEZES.DOESNT OPEN AT ALL, OR WILL NOT SEND.


    THESE ARE BASIC EMAIL FEATURES WE USE EVERY DAY. ARE WE HAVING A LANGUAGE BARRIER HERE, YOU ARE FIXING THINGS NORMAL PEOPLE USE ONCE A MONTH!!!

  6. When Copying hyperlinked text - COPY the URL too

    when I copy text that has an added hyperlink, the 'hidden' URL is no longer copied with the text. The text does appear with the color of a possible URL, but none is present.

    The 'dropdown' (right mouse click) shows that I CAN ADD a hyperlink but no EDIT or ADD the HYPERLINK' thus none was copied

  8. ARE YO AWARE THAT AOL GOLD EDIT HARDLY FUNCTIONS?

    ARE YO AWARE THAT AOL GOLD EDIT HARDLY FUNCTIONS?
    1) UNDO DOESN'T DO ANYTHING

    2) COPY PASTE INTO A FORM DOESN'T WORK, UNLESS YOU REVERT TO PLAIN TEXT, THAN PASTE AOL GOLD IS ARCHAIC. FORMATTING IS BLOCKING PASTE

    3) SPELL CHECK HANGS WORKS 50% OF TIME, & IT HAS A VERY POORWORD SELECTION IT DOESNT RECOGNSZE MANY MISSPELLS..

    S U G G E S T I O N:
    1.)  AOL GOLD DEVELOPER TEAM SHOULD HIRE SEVERAL "EXPERIENCED AOL USERS,= PEOPLE WHO USE AOL EXTENSIVELY.

    2.)  USE OLD AOL 9.8 SO USERS CAN EXPLAIN & "SHOW" IMPORTANT USERS FEATURES TO USERS.

    3.)  IF THEY DO NOT DO THAT, MOST VALUABLE PART OF AOL "THE USERS" WILL BE GONE IN 1 YEAR. AND ONCE PEOPLE LEAVE THEY DON'T COME BACK. I HAVE A LONG LIST OF MISSING ITEMS. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HELP. I DESIGNED NUMBER OF WEBSITES AND INSTRUCTED DEVELOPERS IN CHINA WHAT I NEEDED IT WAS ALL…

    Steve,

    Soozy and I just spent about 45 minutes sending mail back and forth from our various screen names .. on 11 and on web mail .... as Soozy said. it ain't easy and I agree.

    Trying to check if there is incoming new mail on other SNs is a royal ***.  We have to sign out/sign back in under other SNs.   On 9.8 checking mail on 5 SNs was a breeze:  click on Switch SNs and it would show if you have mail to read AND THEN you could switch or cancel and stay on your usual SN.…

    I get a lot of JUNK emails with over a hundred random characters. A simple way to bock them would be a Filter that Limits the number of characters in email. I would chose the number 40.
