Aah well, 5 laptops, running MacOS (10.13 or 10.14) and 3 pc's with win7 pro or ultimate and the only device that shows the page correctly is an iPad.

Good to know it is only the laptops and PC's misbehaving and not the BBP website.

Looking forward to the next update ;)

If I could replicate the problem I would fix it but as everything is working I don't know what to fix here. Perhaps a hard refresh may work (ctrl +f5 on windows, cmd + F5 on mac) may help
If it can't be fixed with duck tape it can't be fixed

It is what it is and for now I will live with it whilst I determine a solution.

It may be in how the feed is called to the main webpage (adobe flash/shockwave? Java/javascript?).

I have all flash, shockwave and java/javascript blocked from loading on all my laptops and pc's as it can be insecure and it may be that causing the issue, though Firefox on iOS on my iPhone behaves the same without blocking flash/java.

Odd, but I'll live with it.

I only mentioned in passing originally and did not want to start a discussion on it, however, always good to know what has been said so far. ;)

It's no bother- we like to hear of any gremlins in case we can fix something, too. ;)
