  1. Stop destroying the Icons.

    First you destroyed the "smiley face" by giving it a moronic-looking open mouth. A smiley face is a smiley face. This new thing is not. Now I see you've destroyed the cute "wink." It's substitute is overblown and ugly. Are you deliberately trying to destroy aol? Or has aol been gobbled up by just another tasteless megawhatever?

  2. Calendar Look Back

    Calendar Only allows a 2-1/2 year look back on a rolling basis.

    How about at least 5 yrs ? 10 yr look back even better.

  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. 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…

  5. Please modify your software to allow the column width for the " Email address" to be at least 2 to 3 times wider. When I receive emails from

    You need the column width to show all of "customer service @ agora financial." instead of just "customer service @ ". I have to move the top of the screen on each email to see who is sending me the email and cannot scan them and delete the trash. It is a waste of time to have to open the column wider each time to read who the Email is from. Thank you for your help.

  6. Bold font color is good - dark and easily read -- on regular type font the color - so faint it is hard to read

    The font on articles other than titles which are a good dark color is extremely light and difficult to read. needs to be fixed- adjusted or something to darken the color of regular type in an article.

  7. What the Heck is going on????? Can't open some of my mail finding duplicate address in my address book and then some of them aren't right

    Some of my emails are coming up blank have to click 2 or 3 times. Finding duplicate addresses in address book and some of them are omitting letters or numbers or extra letters and numbers have been added. If it not one thing its another why can't you get your ---- together and give us what we pay for? AOL from **** ever since new people took it over. This is bull

  12. Disable random keystrokes

    How do I disable the random keystrokes when I try to rename a file/picture before I download it? A real PITA when you are trying to find it and you don't know what "harry" it's now called!

  15. and ******* should not be posted where children and adults view it. Please monitor these sites better so that children and adults are not

    Why don't you monitor filthy language posted on feedback, i.e., Trump Presidency (5/24/19), I personally don't like him and I don't know what the person who wrote was angry about put the posting should never have gone out to the public. Very disappointed in AOL.

  17. please remove the extra click to show the details or emails under BCC. It should show up automatically

    everytime i check my sent emails, instead of seeing the details right away i need to always do an extra click to show details.

  20. words banned from chat

    Please review common words and terms that are currently banned from posting in chat rooms. For example: Magna *** Laude, a Latin term which means to graduate from college with high distinction. Also, "kitty litter" when chatting about pet cats, and "blow," as in to blow out candles on a birthday cake. Your censors apparently do not understand common English or Latin words and how they are used. There should not be any reason to prevent their posting. Not everybody's mind is in the gutter.
