      • why do we have to keep clicking

        Why do we have to keep clicking backwards to get back to article #1? Refresh used to do it instantly but you've removed that option. And no, clicking on "refresh" at the AOL logo does not do the same - it only refreshes the page you're on!

        • ADBlock Plus

          My browser is FIREFOX. I recently moved from AOL 9.??? to AOL Gold. In the former I successfully used ADBlock Plus and was pleased with the results. I find that AOL Gold is much like AOL 9.?? BEFORE I installed ADBlock Plus. TOO MANY ADS in Gold. I contacted your support desk and was told that AOL Gold currently does NOT support ADBlock Plus. They suggested I submit this thru feedback.Roy

          • Mew emojis are nice but most of them are too small to use. You can't make them larger using font size.

            Please make them work with choice of font sizes so we can make them larger.

            • allow spelling changes within spell check.

              after generating an email, one uses aol spell check and comes across a misspelled word-
              if the correct word is not in the suggested list, one must close spell check and manually correct the spelling in the email.
              spell check should allow for changes to be made dynamically in the box where the misspelled word shows up.

                      • Search mail feature!

                        When I search for a particular email address, I want mail "from that one person". I now get ALL the emails that this person was included in, such as in 'group' emails, like my Lions club. Some of those people also send me "personal" emails and I want to be able to search for the one particular email from that one particular person. This is how this "search" used to work and how it SHOULD work. Please switch this feature back to how it was...it is driving me crazy!

                            Although the mail list does not display a time stamp, you can see the time when the email was received, by opening the email and checking the Date section in the email header just below the Subject line.

                                  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…

I have defaulted to go directly to mail, however, there remains a default to the welcome screen in backdrop. This is rather annoying as I can still see it and my attention is then directed to the welcome screen to make an action to close it .

                                    Another suggestion is that an alternative news source be available to AOL members to have a discounted subscription to CRTV.
                                    This would allow members to customize their welcome screen to their preferences and would make the AOL…
