• a TB thing? or a Synchronet thing?

    From August Abolins@VERT to All on Saturday, January 15, 2022 09:12:28
    When I visit a Synchronet bbs with Firefox/32bit, things seem to look normal:

    https://susepaste.org/47038086

    But when I use Firefox/64bit, the navigation buttons are something else:

    https://susepaste.org/32392315

    Is there a setting in FF/64bit that can rectify this?

    No, it stands for "The Billionaire". 1000 times greater than you.

    telegram isn't even in the same universe in this case and has absolutely nothing to do with the problem shown... this is a simple rendering difference between two different flavors of the firefox web browser while viewing a message using the ec4web app(?)... we're trying to figure out why the difference exists...

    I'm not seeing what you're seeing with FireFox on Windows-64. Sounds like a good question for echicken.

    maybe he needs to reset his defaults in that version of firefox.
    could be he was playing with his fonts or the settings got junked.

    i just installed firefox 64 and looks fine

    Yes, it is.

    I'll let you have it for $10,000 USD. That is a SERIOUS
    discount off it's face value. I can't even do the math to
    get how many percent off that is.

    I do insist on a cash payment, in $10 bills.

    Let me know if you want it, but quick, because I have other
    offers.

    I saw the screen shot, but I'm not seeing that behavior in FF myself.

    I haven't been able to look at these screenshots, but the width of the character could be causing a wrap. Could be particular to the size of the browser window.

    I'll try to remember to revisit this thread and track it down soon.

    In this case, I'm pretty sure it's not wrap: the icons are replaced with Chinese (?) character/glyphs.

    I've seen this happen when Javascript was disabled. Is NoScript involved?

    My bad. When I started the message, I was thinking "Thunder Bird". But as I began writing about my dilema, I realized that I should have used the term Fire Fox. Meanwhile, I forgot to adjust the subject.
