    I seem to be getting logged out everytime I leave and come back (didn't close the browser). Is there a button I have to click somewhere?

    my screen is very shaky and it's blue at first then changes to white, and the names of the forums are not showing. I have tried to do a print screen, but it's not working yet...I am running Firefox; version #4, I think....I don't have time right now to try and figure it all out...

    I got a little of what Glenda got. I'm on IE8. But, more aggravating, if the poster's name is long, like Glenda Woods or 30A Shopper, the little arrow doesn't show up at the end, to go to that poster's post. I can't move the partitions to gain more space in that box. Can the boxes be reduced ? Or the font?

    Be sure to check the "remember me" box when you log in.

    Does it jump before the page finishes loading or still after it loads?

    Can you tell me what resolution your monitor is set to?

    I agree with Lucifer, I really miss the newest posts at the bottom of the screen. The new post button just isn't as convienent or homey feeling. Font and button sizes seem a bit too big as well...

    Yes, the font and button size is too big. The boxes seem to big. I'm still having the same problem: when a poster's name is too long, the little arrow doesn't appear. Will altering my resolution size help this, or will it send me into an ever widening cyber black hole. I don't like messing with the resolution...

    :jfunn::misskitty:How much do I LOVE these?!?!?!! I'm still navigating around. I must admit I had the exact same questions, Kitty. I do so miss my "new posts" button. Is it somewhere else, or is it gone?

    The Bugs! The Bugs!

    The thread dealing with the bugs disappeared, as well as the forum for questions. I'm lost in space... Calling Captain Kirk...

    See "new posts" on the left side of the navbar under the "forums" tab.

    Just start clicking and you'll have it figured out in no time.

    Sorry :oops: I don't remember ever having new posts button at the bottom. :blush:
    I always use the one at the top.

    But most often I use a new posts bookmark on my firefox bookmarks bar, also my home page is set to new posts.

    Okay, I see new posts and you've added remember me, but I still have no smilies. Somewhere, JohnR is smiling!
