  2. Sorting of emails on "Type" not working.

    The "Type" column, when sorted sorts by date, not the type (image, attachment, or just text)

  3. Clearing Footprints again.

    I recently posted about clearing footprints when signing off here, got this response:

    Please follow these steps to enable Automatically Clearing the Browser Cache when closing the AOL Desktop:

    1. In the top left corner of the AOL Desktop window, click “Edit” then choose “Select Footprints to Clear” from the drop-down menu.
    2. Check the box next to “Clear Browser Cache on Exit” from the Browser Settings window.
    3. When you’re finished, simply close the settings window because changes are now saved automatically.

    -----It does not work, it doesn't clear all of the items checked.

  4. How do I add words to local GOLD dictionary?

    The old Desktop has a way of adding *my* own unique 'word'..
    I.E. Names of people, etc...

    1 - They obviously weren't copied from the old AOL desktop, and there doesn't seem to be a way to add them to GOLD

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  17. 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.
