    Well, AOL 5 does have its own Plug-ins folder, but as you've seen
    installers generally don't recognize AOL as a browser. Frankly, the
    browser built into AOL 5 is Internet Explorer 4.0, which is ancient
    history and doesn't support a lot of current plug-ins, nor does it work
    with many web sites. Short of dumping AOL in favor of another provider,
    or upgrading to OS X and running AOL for X, which has a recent Netscape
    browser built in, you're best off skipping AOL's browser entirely. Once
    you've logged onto AOL, you can then run any browser you want, such as
    Internet Explorer 5.1.6, Netscape 7.02, Netscape 4.8, iCab...

    True, but you need to revisit the application periodically to keep the
    AOL connection open. I believe that AOL seeks client program activity
    to determine if the connection is abandoned as opposed to just general
    connection activity.

    Setting Auto sessions to pop mail every 5-10 minutes may do that if
    that limited timing is possible. I don't use that feature so I don't
    know for sure.

    The AOL browser works fine for basic use. For more complex use I use IE 5.1.6.

    The person who started this thread was trying to install Flash Player
    and found it won't work with the AOL browser. That's what we're
    discussing.
