Thumbs up Blank space with adds perminent?

I'm wondering if I'm not alone in having to scroll down the page a few frames past the adds on left and blank space to see the first entry of a thread. I'm guessing maybe this scenario has been discussed in another thread that I missed (I've been busy). It makes viewing many days worth of missed threads a longer event . . . Just curious. - Roy

Not here using Mac OS 10.3.8 (all side updates too) on Safari. I tried with the same setup using IE 5.2 and it does have a large gap from the top to the first post. You know, the strange thing was that IE use to be old reliable. What I mean by that is that when Safari didn't work, IE would. What I am finding now, is since IE is so old (it was discontinued several years ago for Mac) it too is having similar oddities as Safari has from time to time.

I'm puzzled

I use Netscape 7.2 as my normal browser, but I just checked Netscape, Firefox, Mozilla, and IE (SP2) and none of them have the described problem whether I have the favorites/bookmarks displayed or not.

Becaus I an Webmaster for the Region 9 site, I have all of the above browsers available so that I can preview my page changes before uploading.

I'm not seeing this problem with XP SP2 and IE 6 SP2 either.

I use Internet Explorer on a Mac G4 running OSX 10.28 (16 1/2 " screen)...Though not new, certainly not antiquated stuff.

See if Safari does it too. If not, you're in good company...if it does, do the updates if you haven't already.

Apparently Internet Explorer (ver 5.2) is the culprit. All is well with Netscape and Safari. For some reason I'm not able to access the Internet Explorer 5.2.3 download. I'll try something different later. Thanks everyone. - Roy

I also have the big space problem before the first post is reached using Internet Explorer 5.1 for Mac on a G3 using Mac OS 9.2.

Well I now have IE 5.2.3, and the issue still remains. I guess it's time to switch browsers. Now if I could only figure out how to export my IE website favorites . . .

I had the same problem on mine. I have a 17" monitor and had the resolution set for 1024 X 768 and with the favorites displayed on the left, the threads would have to be scrolled.

I changed the resolution to 1290 X 720 and the problem is fixed.

My IE is 6.0 SP2 XP

I'm guessing that's for PC? 5.2.3 was the best I could find for Mac.

It is. IE was discontinued for Mac a few years back and 5.2.3 was the final Mac OS version that was released. It might be a good idea at some point to switch to Safari or another browser as IE 5.2.3 is getting a bit long in the tooth. We have both installed in all 5 of our buildings and we have more users using Safari than IE now. I'm not totally sold on Safari yet, but it's gotten better and clearly now in our observations with about 600 workstations, seems to be less buggy than IE has become just recently, not only here, but in a number of sites. I'd also consider looking at Firefox and Opera and see which of the 3 suits your needs best.
