It hasn't improved, I'm afraid. Ever since my last post, it's been looking like this:

I see the same as księżycowy... :hmm:

What browser and operating system are you using? And how did it look like before today?

Yep. If I maximize the window (or just make it big enough), it looks like this:

Mozilla Firefox Quantum 58.0.2 (32-bit) and Linux Mint 15: olivia (i686) on a desktop computer
And how did it look like before today?

Before it started looking this way in Mozilla, it looked the same way it still does when I view it in Google Chrome without signing in:

Does anyone else have this problem? (so that I can see if there's a pattern)

I'm afraid I'll probably have to revert some of the changes considering the layout is not displaying properly for some people...

Here's hoping it has nothing to do with the font change.

I actually see something similar to what Vijay does but only when I zoom in twice (Control +). Do you have any setting in your browser to make the font bigger somehow?

Apart from that, I tried it on Safari, Firefox and Chrome and it displays fine. I'm not using Windows, so I can't really try it on Internet Explorer / Edge. I'd like some input from people using a mobile device as well.

Here's what it looks like on my android:

Which is basically how it's looked all along.

Sorry about the Facebook circle in the middle right there. :P

Actually, after having to upload a few pics onto this thread, can we maybe increase the allowed attachment size? It's a little annoying to have to compress these.

So, I just toyed around this the font size on my browser (Firefox, Win 10) and also zoomed in, and I can't replicate what Vijay's screenshot shows. :hmm:

I'll try it in Chrome and (ugh) Edge too.


EDIT: Ok, those screenshots didn't line up. :P

The way it looks on your phone seems normal to me. The screen is smaller, so everything will be a bit compressed (including forum names). The fact that Vijay sees everything in just one column on a large computer screen is what seems strange to me (and even then, some of the forum names aren't displaying properly for him: for instance, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian)


About attachments: sure, I can increase attachment size, but there's a global size limit in the server. This means that (at least some) of the attachments will have to be deleted every few months. If that's not a issue (knowing that anything you attach here can eventually be lost), then I can do it :)

Ok, let's try those screen shots again:

Chrome, both not zoomed in (Screenshot 10), and zoomed in (Screenshot 11):

Thanks for all your work, księżycowy . You'd be great as a software tester! :P

So basically it works everywhere except on Vijay's computer? :hmm:

Chrome, zoomed in 175%. Not really something I'd normally use... :P

Basically, I can't reproduce that on Windows.

I notice that for my browsers, it doesn't matter what font size I set in the options of the browser, and the only thing I have noticed a change in is the virtual keyboards so far.

(I have it set to 72 point, and I'm not letting the page change my font settings.)

What can I say, I had some free time to waste. :lol:

So far, that's what it's looking like.

You got a virus or something Vijay? :P

That's fine with me Luís.

Anything is better then 250kbs. :P

Zoom level 100%. If I zoom out to 90%, I get what you're seeing!

I don't see how that's possible. It happened precisely after the font change.

OMG IS THAT YOU? :blush: :mrgreen:
