  1. Email Address line

    Remove the highlighting from the email address line, it used to be just regular text with a comma separating additional email addresses, it is not user friendly now. I've had trouble changing addresses such as adding or removing.

  3. UNSORT files!

    When attaching a file, not only has the path been unset, but files are listed in alphabetic order rather than by date, which is in date order - which is how the older AOL worked and how Windows explorer show them.

  4. RE: Email and tabs opening in background

    Sorry if these have been mentioned already, but I wish tabs actually opened in background when that is checked, and i wish that email replys didnt add "re" over and over when replying to emails going back and forth. I just sent one with 5 "re"s in the subject heading.

  8. 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…

  10. browser window tabs dont allow multi tasking

    make the tab window of the browser that you have open stay open. now if u have multiple browser tabs open and one is in the process of loading info, it keeps popping to the top, bumping you our of the window you are currently working in, not allowing you to continue working in another tab.

    Steve,

    Soozy and I just spent about 45 minutes sending mail back and forth from our various screen names .. on 11 and on web mail .... as Soozy said. it ain't easy and I agree.

    Trying to check if there is incoming new mail on other SNs is a royal ***.  We have to sign out/sign back in under other SNs.   On 9.8 checking mail on 5 SNs was a breeze:  click on Switch SNs and it would show if you have mail to read AND THEN you could switch or cancel and stay on your usual SN.…

  13. Make link colors adjustable

    On the Welcome screen, the primary news article link is in BOLD BLACK print. On the secondary news articles, the links are in a LIGHT BLUE font which I find hard to read against the white background. Please consider making the link colors adjustable.

    Hi!

    We have save image as available when the image on the page is added as an image. More and more pages are being rendered in ways where not all things that look like images are loaded as images limiting our ability to offer it on every photo on every page/site.

    We are leaving your idea open for the Copy Image Address portion of the idea as we do not currently offer that.

    Thank you!

  15. Enable "Show UNREAD" emails in Spam

    You show the COUNT of UNREAD SPAM emails, why not ability to SHOW them too?
    If Thunderbird can do it, why can't AOL?

    I let many 'newsletters' go to spam, keeps the inbox for those real people I converse with.

  17. Only the address used to go in. Now their name and address goes in.

    I think it is only in the top row. used to be only the address went into the address place, now your name and address both go in. Also I change the font for mail and it goes back to the one it was in the next e mail. Then again, the find used to find a search word in the webpage you were looking at .... not any more.
