    No high contrast, but they use muted colors that do not strain the eyes. Not so much bright white, muted blue / gray. And the blue for main headers does not try to pull the eyeballs out of my head to read the white text in it like the ones here do. Yes, I'm old with bad eyes, but no other forum affects me like this one does.

    I spend little time here now, just read most of the posts via subscription notifications in Gmail, then click the link to open MTBR and close it again so I'll get the next post notice; I can even get picture links from notifications in Gmail. I get nightly forum updates via email, browse those, and if anything interests me, I click it, subscribe, and leave. I just do not browse the site any longer - makes my eyes and head hurt.

    Yes! The dropdown menu for the forum navigation NOW starts off with the forum you are currently viewing! Took us a bit to get 'er fixed, but fixed she is!

    RE: high contrast ... is it just a matter of changing the white backgound to grey like in this screen shot?

    Afraid not! It highlights the current forum but it does nothing when clicked. You have to go back or click another forum.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    I don't know if this is an issue with the new mtbr format or not - but in the last few days members Avatars and Signatures only occasionally show up (like right now I can only see Ronnies, can't see Greggs or MiniTrails - I had to look in the Hybrid view up top to see who's posted). Also, right above the restored dropdown menu (thanks!) the 'pages' thingy doesn't always show up - sometimes it returns if I hit 'refresh'.
    I did recently uninstall Explorer 10 and retro'd back to Explorer 9 (Ex 10 was only on there for 3 - 4 days before I pulled the plug) so I'm not sure if that was the cause of the issues or not. Haven't tried Chrome yet, but will check shortly.

    edit; the Avitar's show up on Chrome just fine, the issue with the 'pages' thing is still there though.
    Chrome is way faster though!!

    I didn't notice this as much being a problem for me but what I do notice is now I can actually scroll down through the forums with my I-pad and pick what I want. Before it sort of had a mind of its own and made it hard to get to the forum you wanted. Thanks for fixing that!

    Ummm.... mine works as advertised, just like the old system. Clicking and linking all works perfectly.

    Quick navigation still needs to be a live link.

    Definitely doesn't work for me. While on this thread I click on "Site Feedback/Issues", The menu pops up and "Site Feedback/Issues" is highlighted. When I click on it, it closes the menu and stays on this thread.

    If I click on any other sub-forum other than the one I'm on it will go there.

    Why do some threads have format with vertical and horizontal scroll bars? It seems especially odd when there is barely any text in a post.

    Also, reply boxes are almost infintely wide. I have changed the format back and forth to and from Fixed. It is now Fixed.

    Here are the scroll bars.

    Yes, I see the same thing, but that's the way I remember it working in the previous version, too.

    That's not how it used to work at all. It was a live link. It would take you back to the thread listings if you were in a thread.

    Good job on the quick navigation, thank you. Now please bring back the thing that shows everyone's rep. Bad move on your part to hide it.

    Hey Gregg, Almost every forum I choose the browser stalls, with the arrow just spinning. I have to press the "back arrow" to get it to load. I use Windows 7 with Explorer 9.0.8. Any ideas?
