And the forum list loading "stutter" is back. Seems to have returned when the new button/link style was put back in place. I'd noticed it being gone when the older button style was temporarily in place. Very odd...

PC. Core i7 -7500U @ 2.70GHz w/16GB RAM running Windows Home v2004 and Firefox portable. I tested with Edge just in case and had similar results. It only happens during the initial page load for threads in a forum. Once they're loaded everything is OK. I've not seen this at all when in a thread reading/loading pages of posts. It's certainly no deal breaker, just odd and even more so with the font/button change appearing to make a difference (when those buttons aren't even part of the display on the thread titles).

In all the years I've been here my "Whirlybirds" avatar has been cropped.

With the previous upgrade my avatar appeared in 'widescreen'.

Now with this latest upgrade it's back to being cropped.

I miss the widescreen.

While visiting a thread one has visited before, when the page loads at the newest post, the blue header bar (which contains the date, number of posts, etc.) of said post is hidden behind the floating navigation menu bar:

The page needs to load offset for the blue header bar to be visible and have a buffer of space between it and the floating navigation menu bar:

Reason for edit: I realized I was viewing HTF at a zoom level of 110% so my screenshots were not accurate to how most view the site.

I'm still working on this one - any changes at all today?
Sorry, not that I can tell for sure. The "Movies" sub-forum doesn't seem to be affected at all. Oddly it has the movie poster on each thread which you would think would effect it more than the ones without that addition. It also seems to affect the list of threads more with a greater number of new posts/updates, kind of like the bolding of the new post/updates in the thread is possibly a cause. It's really difficult to pin down just when and under the exact circumstances it's occurring.

No sooner than I post that when I leave the site, return a few minutes later, load the "Movies" area and it, too, stutters with *no* new posts. Sigh... I'm not finding much rhyme or reason other than it being the "first" loads of forum threads in each area. I'll keep trying to find consistency - but don't put this one high on the list of things to look at.

This just started a couple of days ago. When I click the notifications bell, then a notification, I’m taken to the post with the top of the post just above the screen. This requires I drag down the post to see it all.

Happening on an iPad Pro using Chrome. I happens with every notification. When the forum software was first updated, this did not happen.

What happened to the sub-forums? Within the Forum Blu-ray there use to be 3D. I liked the ability to see new posts just related to 3D.
