  4. How update time zone abbreviations when changing from Standard to Daylight

    Someone please advise why the time designation does not automatically change when Daylight Saving Time begins (as other systems do). AOL not changing from Standard Time abbreviation, i.e. EST to EDT. This happened last year too. The actual time seems to be correct but the abbreviation is not. (A clock is correct once a day but that is no excuse) Is there a way for me to correct? The designation appears on emails.

  5. It seems that forever now, the "email-us" link STILL never is operating

    It seems that STILL, forever, the "email-us" link NEVER works, is operational... ALSO, on the software drop-down, "check for updates" still never works...ALSO, the " computer protection plan, which is supposed to have a $750 per year free maintenance, repair, replace benefit(s), is NO longer free...They nowadays CHARGE a $75 fee to replace, repair computers, monitors and such... Just another rip off, and unfair greedy deal... Doctor Dave Bengard.

  10. 2402 Gold added a NEW 'Write Mail Editor' - that doesn't work

    "Write Mail Editor" Icon came in with the latest Gold update, 2402.

    If clicked, it gives an error msg of:

    "waol-embed" does not have a registered program

    And sure enough, the URL in Properties has:

  11. Games, we want games, not more ads.

    Fix games. Either can't get on or if i do and am playing a game, it stops.
    because something else is loading, Games should be working as they are part of your plan.

    SCREENS CHANGING SIZE AND TURNING BLACK:

    I use Desktop Gold as my primary browser. I log onto Gold with the main AOL Gold strip at the top, and the Welcome screen to my left and then also My Favorites screen on my right. Everything seem OK as long as I continue doing something on the desktop or internet, but as soon as I let it go idle for 10-15 minutes or so, my screen goes to sleep(as I do have it set for that feature) but also I start hearing"bubble" type notification sounds in the background. If and when I…

  15. Beta 2454 STILL "Not Responding"

    This has been a continuing problem for me..
    Your previous request to me was:
    1. Open AOL Desktop Gold.
    2. Click on Help on the top right, and select Report a Bug from the
    drop-down menu.
    3. Type a short description of the problem, and click Send.

    Tell me please, How do I "Open AOL Desktop Gold" to send a "Bug report" when it does NOT RESPOND?!!

    There would be NO PROBLEM showing after it opens .

    PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This menu box keeps popping up with every click of my mouse...
    (Back, Forward, Refresh, Undo, Redo, Select All, Create Shortcut, View Source, Print, Print Preview, Add to Favorites, Properties, Pop Ups). It is popping up while I am typing this feedback.

  19. I cannot download an email attachment or print an email to a PDF printer. I have reported this bug 3 times and no response.

    Fix AOL Desktop Gold. I expect to get what I pay for. I have reported this bug 3 times and no response. This problem started within the last 2 weeks. I can go to AOL in a browser and then I can either download an attachment or print to a PDF printer. Why is it not working in AOL Desktop "Gold?" I have been using the same computer, with the same settings, with the same operating system, with the same network, with the same internet provider for at least 7 years. Also, get rid of all of the awful ads…
