  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. Resizing images in mail

    The resizing by grabbing the corners of an image is a lot more clumsy and takes a lot longer than the Resize in 9.8 ( decrease 10, 25, 50 % and increase 10, 25, 50, 100 % ) This really feels like a step backward. If you aren't really careful, the image goes to a solid blue and you have to **** around to get the blue image to turn back. If I was dealing with sending 10 or more pictures (which I often do, this will take a lot longer to adjust the images. Were I voting, I'd go…

  8. 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.

  10. social media connect

    The little heart at the top right of the browser , should be able to let user post to face book and other social media, like the browser did in desktop 9.8.2.

  12. 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.

    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.

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
