  2. The photo with the deformed leg and 4 signs you're going to have a heart attack shows up after I send an email. Please remove it. It is in b

    Horrible ad of a dismembered deformed pops up in my face when I send mail, delete mail or browse. Why can't some genius over there get rid of it? You are torturing us with all the ads, some more offensive than others but all annoying and show bad judgment on the part of aol.

  3. 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.

  4. How about ancient geniuses?

    Re: Article on ancient undeciphered objects

    We humans have a tendency to assume that we are the smartest and most talented beings that have walked the Earth. I am not alluding to ETs or supernatural beings having been here. The human brain has certainly evolved, but there is not anthropological; evidence that there was ever a step-function growth in intelligence. In fact, recent discoveries indicate that even the Neanderthal race was quite intelligent. The modern brain appears to be quite old.

    We are also sure that some very exquisite mechanical knowledge in navigation has been lost. Certainly, building arts and…

  5. I hate that picture of the deformed leg that pops up over and over. It is sickening to see it once but 100x!?

    PLEASE REMOVE THAT STUPID PHOTO OF THE LEG WITH AN ELASTIC BAND AND MEDICAL WARNING. IT IS IN BAD TASTE AND ALSO RIDICULOUS BUT NOT IN A FUNNY WAY.It even popped up in the middle of the spam folder after removing my spam!

  8. Browser security

    Today, I went into my Browser Security settings and noticed THEY WERE CHANGED from where I had them set before! No good!

    DO NOT adjust ANY Browser Security settings when CHANGES, OR NEW VERSIONS, of AOL Desktop Gold are automatically installed.

    Changing ANY settings--WITHOUT THE USER'S KNOWLEDGE--is rather bad for "customer confidence," wouldn't you think???

    Thank you.

  9. Terrible Browser: Wasting Time, To Much Going To Other Small Browsers

    Why to many small browsers? Pronto? Zapmenta? Social Scour? Why not just one? That's why I never like Yahoo is the same pattern.

    Get Explorer, or Bin, you people will make us happy

  12. browser extensions

    It would be a great security feature to add a link to review browser extensions like Firefox. It's become a way for bad guys to get into a computer.

  16. Browser stinks

    No idea, just make your browser more compatible with online programs, such as Shopify. Couldn't figure out why AOL kept crashing or shutting down altogether. Then I had to re-download because for some reason it disappeared from my programs, When I reopened, as an AOL browser, I tried opening Shopify and I received messages that I needed to update my Chrome browser. Huh? I wasn't in Chrome. Reading further on the Shopify error page, your browser wasn't listed as compatible.
    Oh, I could open AOL in Chrome, but the layout sucks, it shows ALL my email instead of the just…

  17. Fill out this FCC Complaint Form against AOL.

    To ALL AOL complainers….let's stop wasting our time.

    Please fill out this form to the FCC who controls AOL and let them investigate all of our complaints and maybe get our money refunded and/or not allow them to charge/rob us until they get their product working 100%. I just sent the FCC my complaint. Won't you join me?

  18. Notification popup box too small for content.

    Today I logged in received a popup alert. the content box was too small that I couldn't see the content plus there were no scroll bars. I closed it using the X in the upper right corner since that is all I could do. I could see the very top of a button but unable to see any text associated to it.
    Doesn't anyone from Oath test before they release it?

  20. 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…
