  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. PICTURES IMBEDDED ARE NOT SHOWING UP!!!

    I HAVE JUST SENT 6 EMAILS WITH A SMALL PICTURE IN EACH EMAIL. NOT A SINGLE PICTURE SHOWS UP IN THE EMAIL, JUST THE LITTLE BLUE BOX THAT AOL SHOWS WHEN THEY HAVE SCREWED UP YET AGAIN. FIX THIS CONSTANT RECURRING PROBLEM, THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS FOR US TO NOT BE ABLE TO SEND PICTURES. I'M USING THE PICTURE ICON ON THE EMAIL HEADER, NOT COPYING AND PASTING PICTURES, SO THERE ISN'T ANY REASON THE PICTURES AREN'T SHOWING UP. YOU NEED TO QUIT JACKING US AROUND AND GIVE US A CONSISTENTLY WORKABLE PROGRAM.

  9. The old AOL versions had a way to repair the program if it stopped working correctly. This one doesn't. Why not?

    The old AOL versions had a way to repair them if they no longer worked right. The "new" Gold doesn't have that. It no longer saves passwords on websites for me. I tried to find a place where I could make repairs, but there is nothing. CAN WE EXPECT THAT TO BE ADDED SOON? I hate the Gold version, which has always be very inferior to the last one!!!!!!

  10. Convenient Email settings gone.

    New Gold Format has taken away small, but convenient settings. I now have to open each one of my screens to see if there is mail. Old Format showed number of emails on Sign On screen list.

  13. 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.

  15. write mail

    It would be convenient when a user has multiple accounts /user names if the "write mail" screen would display the user name currently logged in. Example:
    "Write mail from User1234"

  17. Transfer Group and its contents to another AOL ID

    Give us the ability to create a GROUP name with people listed within the group which we can do now.
    Have the ability to share the GROUP and its contents to another AOL user.
    For instance I created a group under my BIZCAM3 and I want to put on my wife's ID also.

    How can this be done?

  19. 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.
