  1. I want to customize the font I see on the AOL pages. I hate sans serif fonts. Why can't I change the font NOT just the size.

    • Download Manager

      Thank you for finally adding the download manager feature. The only objection I have to it is that it is not nearly as good at the one in the last AOL version. In that one, I had several Favorites saved in one place and could just click on one of them and bring it up. Now, I click on one of them and it is saved so that I have to go to my documents to bring it up. Why did you add another step? Please go back to the last version and use whatever programming you used to make…

        • Need for Email Dictionary for Users Who Inadvertently Add Misspelled Words, Including Names!

          I wrote yesterday requesting that AOL Gold users have their email dictionaries restored so that if users approve a misspelled word, they can go into their dictionaries and delete a word or name mistakenly approved so that it will not be accepted by the AOL spellcheck feature in the future. Today, I know more. If I misspell a proper noun or name and, for example, spell Dr. Yaryura, Yarura without the second "y," AOL Gold will accept the misspelled "Yarura," and I will look anywhere from rude to insulting to stupid because intelligent people in the communications field use their…

            • Importing favorites from a different browser.

              I am not able to import into Desktop Gold my favorites (bookmarks) from Chrome or Internet explorer. It seems as if you use a different protocol than the other browsers.

                                • I am having trouble reading the printed lines on Huffington/AOL News as the AVANTIS VIDEO is horrible and covers about 1/2 the screen.

                                  As repeated the AVANTIS VIDEO should be removed permanently as it blocks about 1/2 the screen of what I am trying to read with annoying videos and no X to remove it. I am constantly removing other ads in order to read and see photos from articles I may like. Frankly it is getting a bit much and free AOL was much better than paying for it and getting poor service. I have had this email address since 1988 so not happy when it creates problems, blocks email I wish to receive, etc.
