That's the poorest explanation I have ever heard for incompetency of a company.. I can't even follow your instructions.. All o f a sudden I now am being asked to create a new account because of non usage.. I used AOL about 2 hours ago and do use it everyday so what is the deal.. Maybe it is time for g.mail. i have used AOL for more that 20 years.. Your responce will help make my decision..

What is your problem, AOL? You can see that your horrible Gold platform totally sucks and everybody hates it, and it has endless problems, yet you refuse to replace it with a platform that works and is user-friendly. Please replace it with a platform that works!
Yes, AOL Gold freezes constantly!! I am paying 15.00 a month and have been with AOL forever..This is the worst version you have ever released!!

Agree. Freezes constantly. Yesterday, I was trying to place an online order and it froze and wouldn't process the order. Had to go to Firefox to complete the order process. One of the comments mentioned was paying $3.99 a month for AOL. I'm paying $14.95. How do you get the cheaper rate. Like the AOL format and toolbar and favorites, but ready to switch. Not worth the price I'm paying.

Make Gold work or I'm going to Gmail instead of paying you 12/month

That's right folks, AOL Gold is a mess whatever browser is used. It just becomes a messy case where AOL Gold works the worst, or not at all. It's truly amazing AOL's parent company Verizon, Oath et. al. can get away with fraud for sooo long. Never thought I'd live to see such corruption in the open. Sad.
YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE TITLE..GET BACK TO ME..
YOUR PROGRAMMERS ARE INCOMPETENT
AOL gold locks 3-4 times a week. Have to close and restart ccnstantly. Why. This has been going on since you launched it.

I have been remoted into 5 or 6 times to get rid of an AOL full page popup!!!! It continually pops up over and over and over . It is an AOL Ad PAGE with THIS IN THE SEARCH BAR.
I've reported to "fix a bug" too!!! Been with AOL since the early 90's. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m having difficulty with my AOL Gold that I pay for monthly. It freezes, my emails sometimes do not arrive - I love the accessibility but I may gave to cancel AOL Gold. Please advise

I am unable to get my Desk Top Gold to return to my former DTG where I had all my files....now I have no files, I have to re-enter my password continually, none of my settings remain current...this must have something to do with Microsoft...
ARE YOU HINTING THAT I SHOULD GET RID OF AOL AND GO TO GOOGLE????

I'm using AOL Revision 11.0.2914. When this is running, it makes my PC very very VERY slow using all its resources! Cefsharp.browserSubprocess.exe has 8+ sessions running, PLEASE advise, this is been going on for 3 months.DO NOT IGNORE THIS
truly fed up... this is so wrong... why should I have to go to save aol .. manage and create folder then have to go back to the email that i wanted saved to place in folder.. before just scrolled down and clicked on create.. why would you make things more tedious????? why can you not find the email names that were lost with whatever you are doing now? WHY> Why do you have +1... why do you not know how one dials in USA? why do you not have dates any longer.. how are we to know.. now just have contacts and no way to click on dates?
these are facts.. very angry, annoyed, frustrated... the person that helped me but that was after aol hung up on me 2x..
whatever you just did to my computer is one big disaster
I lost the top 10 names that I had .. and cannot get it back. to create a folder now 3 steps instead of just clicking create a folder now phone # have a +1 you do not need that in USA. At times cannot delete . user emails some have dates other users do not... this is one big disaster hope you will contact me when this is fixed.. I am ready to quit aol
you did this when you made aol gold.. and now you are doing this again.. why cant you test your changes before applying them to your customers... so frustrated.. angry.. annoyed.... this is not the way you should be treating your customers...
Either learn to fix the problems or put it back like it was. You know...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

AOL GOLD DOES NOT RESPOND EVERYDAY! WHAT AM I PAYING FOR?
FINALLY! An update that fixes all the issues!! The freezing... the mailbox tabs... everything. Revision 2914. PLEASE DON'T UPDATE IT AND MUCK IT UP AGAIN!! 🙏🤞🙏
My AOL doesn't load emails quickly..everything takes forever to work..what can be done..I pay a fee for this service..I am NOT happy
Hire someone who can fix your site its not fun waiting and waiting for things to get in order.
Everyday my EMAILS get all mixed up and not current all the time. Then when I try to go to SENT my computer screen turns WHITE and it takes a good 5 minutes before it will open up to it. This happens daily fix it so
I can use this. Thanks.
