[quote=“MaPoDurian”]This was a problem for me with Netscape 4.7 (which also crashed frequently when viewing Forumosa) but not with IE 5.x. However, since switching to Netscape 7.1, the page fits within a screen – unless someone posts an enormous image or a long URL.
Oh, life is soooooo good.

This particular thread fitted within my screen until your post, whereupon the long URL stretched it and I now have a horizontal scroll bar. This is so in IE6, Firefox and K-Meleon but not in Opera which seems to have adjusted the text size to fit.
My display is 800*600 - I have it like this because any bigger and the Windows icons and text are all too small. I know you can opt for larger text but it’s inconsistent. Diagonally from corner to corner, my monitor’s screen is 16".
I only rarely had these problems until a couple of months ago - possibly at the same time that the basic, unelaborated phbb forum software was reinstalled, although I’m not certain. Now I get the horizontal scroll bar on quite a few threads. Gus, is there an option that forces automatic wrapping of long URLs or something like that? Can you think of anything that has changed?
If something has changed, and if it’s something that can be changed back easily, then maybe we could start a poll. If few people have this problem then just leave things as they are.
