  1. Fix the "Insert a Text File " for email..

    When I use the "Insert a Text file" from the email drop-down,
    ALL comes in without line-breaks and multiple blanks.
    Basically all formatting is lost making the use of this function worthless.

  2. The browser show progress

    The browser should show , usually at the bottom if it is connecting to website, or not, some kind of progress, so you don't keep clicking and starting the same progress all over.

    1.)  AOL GOLD DEVELOPER TEAM SHOULD HIRE SEVERAL "EXPERIENCED AOL USERS,= PEOPLE WHO USE AOL EXTENSIVELY.

    2.)  USE OLD AOL 9.8 SO USERS CAN EXPLAIN & "SHOW" IMPORTANT USERS FEATURES TO USERS.

    3.)  IF THEY DO NOT DO THAT, MOST VALUABLE PART OF AOL "THE USERS" WILL BE GONE IN 1 YEAR. AND ONCE PEOPLE LEAVE THEY DON'T COME BACK. I HAVE A LONG LIST OF MISSING ITEMS. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HELP. I DESIGNED NUMBER OF WEBSITES AND INSTRUCTED DEVELOPERS IN CHINA WHAT I NEEDED IT WAS ALL…

  5. Dropdown box

    Put the dropdown box back in email "Settings", "General" tab to allow me to set how to sort my mail display. I prefer old on top, new at bottom. The same as I read books front page to last page.

  6. The Gold version doesn't bring over old PFC's properly and your techs know it, Address this fast as an imperative!

    Gold can not bring over old PFC's in an orderly fashion.. Everyone's hard work to have an organized PFC has been destroyed by it coming over in an alphabetized fashion. If it would have to come over AS IS and then perhaps, give the option for some to have the option to elect alphabetized, would be respectful and optimal. I estimate at least 40 hours will be required *** around around to try to get it back in a semblance of order, so we can use it properly. This need to be acknowledged, and an effective solution with an expected…

  7. New features should allow customers to defeat or opt out

    Whenever you add a new feature such as Tab Browsing, provide a means for the customer to disable it if they so desire.

  9. browser should show progress. Sometimes you think it is frozen , so you refresh , and it screws up the whole session.

    At the bottom it should show the web address and if it is making progress or stuck, because the website sucks or the browser is stuck. If you jump the gun and refresh some secure websites make you go through new verification **** to get back in.

  10. When system TIMEOUT occurs, AOL loses password

    When leaving the computer for a time, Windows times out..
    Upon return, AOL demands its' Password - Even though the password has been saved.

    My Desktop AOL normally comes up without needing the PW. The 'saved password' was always copied to each new release of the Beta, but once that timeout occurs, the PW is required.

  12. Make the browser extension like the outdated browser in 9.8.2..

    Let the user be able to share especially to Facebook the webpage. The one was the best features of the older desktop.

  14. Text colors in emails not working.

    Clicking the apparent 'background' or 'text' color choices, does nothing.
    There are no choices presented.
    I did note that highlighted AND colored text reverted to black. But nothing allows other colors to be selected

  17. VERY WEIRD Result writing an email, with underscore character ("_")

    While entering an Underscore as part of a file name in an email
    (I.E. under_in-middle.pdf) the underscore did not show?! ... I copy/pasted that string elsewhere and it did display !!??

    I tested many underscores on a blank line in the same email - and they ALL SHOWED!?!

    ONLY in that one section where I could not get the underscore to show, even copy/paste of an underscore in another line to that one
    spot, it would not show?!

  18. ADG matching Win 10 Theme

    I was wondering if the top bar colour could match the current Win 10 colour them like other apps and software do within that OS environment.

    Also I don't believe the background image changing option within the client shouldn't be listed under 'FILE' it doesn't make sense, 'Settings' would be a better option and location for that facility

  19. Downloading in AOL 11 needs some tweaking

    I ran into a few glitches in downloading a file in 11 that should replace an existing Excel file in a folder with several files.

    Downloading a file to replace an existing file in 11 doesn't have the option of replacing the existing file nor does it open a folder that has several files including the file to to be replaced.

    Specifically -- Downloading an Excel file that should replace an existing Excel file in a folder with 'related' files (in this case a membership data base file, a dues paid file, etc.).

    1) email received with the updated membership…

  20. In Gold, the ability to elect to defeat Tab Browsing completely, needs to be restored!

    Tab Browsing is a very serious detriment to the way we do research! It also needlessly occupies about a half inch of valuable vertical space on our screen. Whenever a new feature is added, AOL should design the option to defeat it if undesirable to the customer. It is disrespectful to do otherwise and it just be comes clutter. This alone is the greatest deterrent to retaining our business!
