@burnout426 I'll see what's different about them. Nodebb promised to make them consistent now
Heard any news on this? Do we need to contact Nodebb?
OK, I've found the cause.
Adblock Plus is stopping that thread loading on Firefox.
If I disable it it's fine.
Strange as I have Adblock installed on Opera 36 as well on the XP side of my machine, and there it loads fine with Adbock enabled!
There was a period today when my Opera 36 wouldn't even load the Speed Dial, or the Bookmarks Manager, but it seems to have just come good again, and the update mechanism isn't now throwing error messages any more either.
I guess some server issue which has now been fixed, I hope it stays fixed!
Certainly the blog post you pointed to earlier on suggests that this is a problem that shows up in older versions of Internet Explorer and Opera, so masking Opera 12 as IE or leaving it as Opera could well make it appear, although as I said earlier the problem doesn't actually appear on IE8, at least not on my system!
Anyway, as long as it doesn't cause any other problems I'll leave things as they are. I haven't actually tried posting to that Sky forum since I changed the setting, but it now certainly all displays OK.
Thanks guys, yes I'd forgotten the history files!
I'm sure I have manually copied wand.dat between the installations before, and it seemed to work OK.
The profiles in the three installations were originally copies of a single original anyway.
I'll give copying wand.dat a try anyway as it is.
I don't use notes or RSS so I won't bother with those files.
Also I'm not worried about regularly copying things like toolbar and menu setups, as they are only changed extremely rarely.
It's mainly things like bookmarks and passwords I want to keep in sync.
Well you're absolutely right, because it's suddenly started working again now, which it wasn't earlier on!
Maybe Digital Spy did something at their end, I don't know and we'll probably never know.
Now I'm just hoping that it keeps on working!
Unfortunately, it does go to illustrate a problem inherent in the entire 'extension' concept. The more independent software products that are involved in correctly putting a site's data up onto your screen, the more possibilities exist that at least one of them won't have their coding properly updated when the site decides to make a significant change in their site code. With web-support features embedded directly into a browser, there is only the browser-website interface to keep updated; with an extension, there exist browser-website, browser-extension, and extension-website interfaces that all have to play nicely together. This becomes an especially acute problem when an extension developer has few resources to keep current, compared with a browser development shop.
It only appears on a thread in the list that you've started.
It should act like the cogwheel icon on posts, which reverts to "flag" only after the 30 minute deadline for edits has passed.
Ideally if you can't use it any more it should disappear altogether.
Well I'm not sure about AdBlock Plus, I've read a few dodgy things about that, but I use AdBlock on 12.17 and it works very well, even though it's not supported on 12.17 any more.
I agree about the widgets, they were a bit of a waste of time, proper extensions are much better, and there are plenty of them for 12.17 of course.
Maybe that's what they meant by "better desktop organisation and customisation options", extensions, because they certainly aren't built into the new browser!
I'm not saying that they should be I hasten to add, as you say it's a different approach now, for better or worse.
