Did I break the forum?

Post by dratkinson »

Did I break the forum? I need help in diagnosing the problem.

In my reply to OP: viewtopic.php?p=5076367#p5076367
It views okay in the Preview window, but not in the forum window: lines are missing, jumbled, overwritten.

Does it view okay for you?

Did I break the forum? Is my reply too long? Would it work if I split it?

Or is the trouble with my old PC?

I initially thought I might not have enough RAM to view a long forum page.
But I can duplicate the problem with multiple forum topic tabs open, or only the one offending topic tab open, so the problem may not be that I have insufficient RAM.


FYI, my PC: ‘95-vintage Dell OptiPlex GXa, P2, 64MB RAM, Win98SE, Firefox v2, dial-up connection. (Yea, I know, one day, maybe sooner now.)


Edit. Browser: Firefox v2.

It seems reasonable to me.

What browser are you using? I'm using Google Chrome.

I have a very modern high end machine, just finished building it a couple of weeks ago.
