Hi Dave

Responding to test if Ctrl-F5 helps - clicking the Reload button does not.

No, no change there, no "New" indicator displayed.

Hi Dave

Clicking the url results in the "new" gif being displayed so no problem displaying a gif.

I guess the next thing to try is safe mode and then a new profile

Hi Pete, here are screenshots:

The first one is from the new home page:
Unread-Main.png
https://www.os2world.com/cms/

The second one shows a page of the (probably unchanged) Simple Machines Forum:
Unread-SMF.png
https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?action=unread;board=10.0;children

Can you tell  me more about your "Stylish code for the old page"? whats that?, let me see some pictures, maybe it can be interesting to take some inspiration from that?
Hi Martin,

here's the CSS:
Code: [Select]
@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("www.os2world.com")
{

   *
   {
      font-size: 100% !important;
      font-family: DejaVu Sans;
      line-height: 1.4em !important;
   }

   p, li
   {
      font-size: 10pt !important;
      color: black !important;
   }

}

Here are the screenshots:

(I can't upload the 3rd and 4th screenshot, that shows a thread page with filtered size and colors. IIRC, that's why I've added the p, li part above. The 3rd has 56 KB and shows the original. Upload worked, but didn't make sense. The 4th has 60 KB and shows the modified page, but led to the error message:)

Hi

I'm don't complete get what is the issue about the "new" icon on the main page on "Latest forum post":

- It shows only for users logged on main site.
- Do you want me to change the image? or to remove it?

Hi Dave

While on the subject, could you change this, https://www.os2world.com/forum/Themes/default/images/sort_down.gif to a png? It's probably a one frame animated gif and it makes the browser (SM 2.42.9) use CPU.
Thanks for your work and time.

I don't see that file as an animated gif. I don't want to change it to png because it could be a problem for the SMForum template, but I can try to save it with gimp as a GIF and upload it again to see if there is any change.  Or did your problem went away with a new SeaMonkey profile?

Hi Martin, if that is a responce to me: Pete's problem is that he doesn't see the 'NEW' icon, nothing more.

Additionally, login doesn't stick. I have to log in for every session again.

Ok

Issues List
  • The articles images still looks weird. All look floating on the text, and even if I set them as "inline", center or left, it shows always floating. It seems to be a problem with the visual template. I will have to keep looking how to fix that. (or maybe change the template)
  • I still have to set up some antispam and/or captcha for user registration. I had turned off site registration for the moment.
  • I need to set the RSS feeds again.
  • Main Site (Joomla) is not remembering logged users

Thank you, mystery now solved - I was not logged in so the "new" icon did not show.

It is working fine now I have logged in  :-)

Hi Martin,
We had a similar problem on the Arca Noae Trac server, one image seemed to be an animated gif with one frame which caused all the Mozilla apps based on 45.9ESR to use CPU, a bug in the browser. In that case Lewis replaced the offending gif with a png.
This gif does the same here, if I go to "Recent Unread Topics" and there are any posts, CPU is busy, if no messages, one CPU has 1% usage. It seems to be the arrow. Rebuilding it as a regular gif should work, easy to test by loading it into a tab and looking at CPU usage.
The profile thing was for Pete where the new icon doesn't show.
Thanks

Hi Dave.

I confirm the issue of the https://www.os2world.com/forum/Themes/default/images/sort_down.gif  file with Firerfox 45.9.0.
It happens also to me.

I had tried to re-save that file with Gimp, but as a gif still cause trouble. For what I can see on gimp, it is not an animation, so I'm trying to find a way to remove the property that is making Firefox spike up. (Wait, it seems that I have a cache issue)  I just change it to PNG, but I'm not sure if the forums script will be smart to only display "sort_down." without depending if it is a gif or not.

Update: I just tried to save the gif files on PMView and it does not spike up on firefox. I will check more about this.

Dave, Can you please point to the "Recent Unread Topics" page where it shows?

Regards
