  1. Please keep AOL Browser Updated

    Keep the AOL browser updated so I can use YouTube here.
    You Tube has been giving me this alert lately:

    We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For the best experience please update your browser.

  2. waste of time

    You seem to have the ability to spend more time saying less than I thought possible. If you are going to tell a story do it. Spreading a one page story over ten pages is annoying and stupid.

  4. Education

    Is there anyone working for AOL that has graduated high school? It does not appear that way. AOL is dumber than a dead rat?

  5. Do Not Believe

    AOL has 90 stories on its Welcome page. There is not ONE that is happy or shows how great America is. All they do is * on people and tell stories about how bad the dead people were and who is having outside of marriage and how Trump is bad. YOU SUCK.

  6. Get immensely better at what you are supposed to be doing

    You have been shut off now for 20 minutes and I have no access. Three other browsers are working. This is unacceptable and I will now begin looking for a new source of internet after using AOL solely since getting the internet many, many years ago. ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Welcome page "fluff" in storys

    When you run a story in the "Welcome" box, it requires you to go page by page with "fluff" text. Why not run the entire story on one page and remove the garbage text. Get to the meat of the article as soon as possible. Going page by page is "VERY SLOW" even with high speed internet. It also starts bouncing adding advertisements just as your about to click "next" which then brings up an unwanted advertisement. If I'm going to pay for service then "PROVIDE SERVICE" and condense the story's to one page that you scroll through.

  10. block all emails that begin with noreply+noreply

    I don't understand why AOL can not permanently block all emails that begin with "noreply+noreply" (not just put them in the spam folder)

  14. Put Spam back like it was - able to open links.

    Again - please put Spam back like it was - so I can open links. At the very least, if I say it is not spam, move it to New Mail, not Old Mail. I am not longer able to unsubscribe from Spam mailings without moving them or read the articles to see if it is something I want to keep getting. Your change has really complicated things.

  15. Missing email from Sept 2007 to Dec 2014

    How is possible to miss 7 years of emails?
    Can you please react fixing the issue?

    Only few emails in the period from Sep 2007 to Dec 2014 are visible:
    2009 = 1
    2011 = 2
    2012 = 8
    2014 = 8

    Also trying with the several filters available, emails are not visible.

    This is not good!

  16. When I pullup my gmcard, capital one account I can sign on and it opens up but after that I cannot get into the detail of my account.

    I get a notice saying sorry. looks like we ran into a snag. We will fix it and try back in the future. It's been like that now for several weeks and can AOL GOLD fix it?

  17. spelling dictionary

    You "suggestions" as to how to fix the spelling dictionary don't work as there is no option under Mail for any spelling dictionary words. Yes, the words get underlined and you can right click and tell AOL to accept the word as spelled but in the next email, the same words get underlined as wrong again. Restore the Spelling Dictionary so that words we had to it STAY in it. Before we had to pay for AOL, it worked so much better. Now we PAY you and get far less than we used to. Please fix our Personal Spelling Dictionary…

  18. Marking an email "UNREAD" does not restore BOLD black.

    This is NOT something that ANYONE can 'fix' on your phone-in..

    WHEN an email is read, then clicked " Mark Unread" - it is NOT reset in DARK BLACK, The red arrow is removed BUT, IT IS DIFFICULT TO SEE, PLEASE RESTORE THE DARK BLACK AS IT WAS FOR YEARS ..
