  1. Give us back the 9.8 features in Gold

    Bring back desktop themes, stationery and emojis for mail, allow us to set up Favorites like we want them, make icons for toolbar available. Most of the time when I'm typing a e-mail, the type doesn't keep up with me and thus missing letters or words. Give us back all the features of 9.8 because Gold is seriously lacking most everything.

  4. Liberal hack

    I see AOL continues to feed its brain dead visitors to liberal and hate trump articles. Why not simply be truthful and declare yourself a Left Wing appendage of the Liberal Socialist Democratic Party? You are not fooling anyone. Your "wonderful" painting of Bernie and Kamala makes me sick. I am surprised your lips are not worn out from all the butt kissing you did for Obama....but here we go again. YOU ****.

  7. Bring Back from 9.8.2:

    Bring Back from 9.8.2: [1] Address Book: Alphabetize both the Categores of the Groups on the left of the Address Book screen and the Categories of listed on the Address Card to the right. [2] Favoirites: Allow us to arrange the categories as we choose if we DO NOT WANT them alphabetized and ALLOW us to move the categories where we want them on the list.

  8. Improve AOL Gold to be more like 9.8.2

    Why do we need to double click on every space when writing an email?? This is the most frustrating thing in my entire day!!
    Also why must we click on "inbox" before "new" mail?? 9.8.2 did not have these problems!!!

  9. Do you realize just how Anti-President Trump you are?! You should be ashamed!

    My idea is for you everyday to stop having 50% or more of your stories attacking the President....It's really getting old & it is so bad you probably don't even notice it....pathetic, unprofessional and totally biased!

  11. On the Welcome page, having us go page after page after page to read an article creates the kind of disgust I see in Facebook with theirs.

    In Facebook, the articles that go page after page after page create the most negative feedback of anything in Facebook. And now you are doing the same. I swear, 17 pages to read a single article? Give me a break!

  12. At least make it work like 9.8

    I don't like Gold either. Just making it work like the 9.8 AOL would be a great step. When in the address book, pressing a letter should take you to that letter''s area of the address list. When an email is selected in the email list, it will only stay selected for a few seconds. Right clicking on an entry in the list of emails will not select that email.

  13. When typing in an email address, it should autofill

    The old AOL used to autofill the email address when you typed in a few letters
    Now with Gold, you must type and then click which is an extra step
    Please restore autofill

  14. Not happy with the new GOLD. I do not like the graphics - they look primitive.

    I also miss the drop down on the WECOME tab on the home page where a number of categories would drop down for quick easy access - like finances (so I could see how my stocks were doing), movies, health, etc. I would WELCOME it if it was restored.

  15. Please STOP all the AOL pop ups on sign in. I've set preferences NOT to have pop ups, and yet each time I sign in, there's AOL Games popup.

    Respect your customer's wishes. In preferences I've stopped popups from AOL or otherwise. Yet, still I get the AOL Games pop up (and others) EVERY TIME i sign in -- sometimes several times a day. STOP. I really hate this new AOL GOLD. It's terrible -- slow, freezes, and non-responsive. Get your act together, please!

  16. I'm suddenly getting slammed with hundreds of spam and phishing emails. I've had over 100 today alone help. I cna't stop to unsubscribe

    I'm suddenly getting slammed with hundreds of spam and phishing emails. I've had over 100 today alone help. I can't stop to unsubscribe from them all and the spam folder isn't taking them. I don't have these problems with Gmail?

  18. Let us use either version of AOL - 9.8.2 pr GOLD - or make GOLD more friendly to use as the older version is.

    No comparison between GOLD and the older version of AOL - either update GOLD or give us the option to use the older version as well as have GOLD available
