Slack,
Just checked the laptop which runs at 1024x768 and got the same results as Steve. This is in Firefox 1.5 running on XP Pro SP2.

Edit: It's happening on the radio page during the requests countdown.
       Must be the long header holding it wide as it has gone back to normal with regular schedule.

Yes, consistent - but it is ONLY on the Forum index page - ALL of the individual forum subject pages are absolutely fine.

Steve, I've tweaked the forum template --- and I am personally not getting the extended index page in IE -- but you check it out and see if it works for you.

Thanks,
slack

Hi Slack,

As thepage loads the horizontal scroll-bar appears momentarily but NOW as the page finishes loading it disappears. So, end result - no scroll-bar.

Well done and thanks.

Good deal.

On a related topic. Microsoft has released a public beta (beta 2) of Internet Explorer 7.  I've been chekcing it out the past 2 days and it is pretty nice - it incorporates much of what is already in Foxfire :) tabbed browses, foxfire type search box, rss feeds etc etc.  you must have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed to run it.  here is a link in case anyone is interested.  Just be aware that Beta means they are still working on it.

Is it still slow? I find IE painfully slow...

Hmm, seems about the same -- but I've never found IE painfully slow.

I am too --- but must use IE for some work applications -- IE 7 looks to be a big improvement over IE 6

Like Slack - I've never had any problems with IE 5 or 6. Never found it particularly slow.

Firefox is OK too and with some tweaks can be faster than IE.

Looking forward to trying IE7.

Hi Slack,

Hmm, that old scroll bar is back on the Forum index page and there is also one on the Juke index page too.

Whilst I am on - how does one spell Roy Bookbinder's surname? I have always spelt it as one word 'Bookbinder' but I notice that all of Roy's tunes on teh Juke are under a surname of 2 words "Book Binder" - I am unsure which is correct and which ain't.

Cheers.

Steve

Hi Steve, well darn -- will keep looking.

The juke will appear wide depending on the title of the album --- may try to get the "wrapped" at some point.

Book Binder is two words, here is Roy's site:

Cheers,
