I hate that you are having problems Rusty, hopefully they will get it right sooner or later.

What I don't understand, is the total lack of response from the admins.

Well, I don't think they are drawing a paycheck from this forum but I could be wrong, I do know the forum is FREE to join and use, so it's usually a case of don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Updating to FF 22.0 solved the problem of the ctrl/click once again opening a link in a new tab, any other display issue might be your own settings or browser, everything here displays perfectly for me on mac FF, maybe you need to expand the browser window larger or change some preference, disable some plug-in or toolbar thing.
Also, FF has the ability to use a custom CSS template file, you'd have to check their site for detials on how to do this. it could be your default fonts or font size is doing nasty things to the display in columns etc.

I am an unpaid admin on several forums. If one of my members was having a problem after an update, I would reply to the member directly and try to help. After this update, there has been a problem for many members, not just me. Working with forum software daily (but not this type) I can guarantee you that there is a glitch in the update.

There was some progress made yesterday. Oversized pictures are now being re-sized automatically by the system which should solve the ads overlapping the post. It appears to have worked, at least from my screen.

As far as other issues just keep posting them here and we'll make sure to forward them to the Admin. That's about all we can do.

It only affects a percentage of people actually, which to me indicates it's a browser issue, I've never had any display problems in this forum, the only issue was the usual cmd/click to open a link in a new tab suddenly stopped working, but as someone pointed out- UPDATING FF to the newer 22.0 completely solved that problem.

I don't think simply updating my FF as I did is going to fix a forum software glitch, the fact it did fix that issue tells me it's the browsers are outdated, choking on newer java or whatever code and need to be updated.

As always, when experiencing such issues, the first thing to do is try another browser, if the pages display properly in that one then you know the first browser is the problem.
