I think all of you folks having problems must be using Bill Gates "Tortureware" (Windows).
I'm using a Mac and the Safari browser and am not having any problems.
My Mac has dual boot capability for OS X and Windows XP. The Safari (default settings) appearance is poor with light grey background and smaller black font. Editing font is even smaller. I rate the Safari look and feel poor compared to the old version and there is the buggy software. One cannot get to the end post. When I click on the time, I get the top of the last page.
On the same computer / screen, Windows IE 8 is perfect. High contrast larger font with IE default setting and the jump to the last post works.
And of course there is that annoying logo in the bottom right hand corner.
I suspect that Bulletin V4 is optimized for IE Versions XX and above and BF was told that when they were going to make the switch. And the BF implementation team has to make selections of font / backgrounds that appear differently on difference displays and browsers including the version.
For example, I could post pictures that would look better and larger on many displays but would be too big for some. IMO, it is very difficult to get everything right but..... that is the business of BF. Getting the communication medium right!
Saying that we now have the cutting edge is great if customer satisfaction tracks. It certainly appears that customers are not happy and the software was rolled out prematurely without sufficient testing on many computers and browsers.
