      • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.
