Thumbs up Thread Display Widths???

First off, let me say everyone involved with the creation and maintenance of this site are doing a fine job, but . . .

Why is it that when I look at a message or thread on a forum, it no longer automatically resizes to the width of my window? This appears to have changed sometime within the last week or so. It is annoying that I now have to scroll back and forth to see the entire body of a message.

Interestingly, when I look at a forum (with it's list of messages/threads), it still auto sizes to the wifth of my window.

What gives?

Likewise

Same thing started to happen to me. I just hit F9 (Netscape) to hide the bookmarks and there is plenty of width on the screen for the posts without scrolling.

I am working on a solution. It has to do with the width of the quick reply box. So any page with a qucik reply box is not resizing properly on screens set to lower resolutions. I should find a fix this week.

Bump . . .

Just bumping this back up to the top. Still looking forward to the day I don't have to close my "Favorites" or scroll left & right to see the entire body of a message. Hopefully, a solution is near. . .

Not me, but rfield54 started a new thread today stating that he is having the same issue, but he didn't list his browser: http://www.airforums.com/forum...ad.php?t=15541

Amen and Kudos for bringing this MAJOR annoyance up.

I wanted to ask about it but wasn't sure how to word it. If Andy is correct that the glitch is related to the quick reply function.
I think the obvious solution is to deep-six the "Quick Reply" feature. It is a bell (or is it a whistle) that is redundant and un-necessary. It is no problem to just use the post reply tab and do it the "old fashioned way".
I do most of my lurking here without signing in, and in that mode where there is of course no "reply" function at all, there is no width problem.

I guess it depends on your activity on the forum. I have found Quick Reply a great feature since it saves "a click" and a transmission just to get the reply window back. For a user with a dial up, this is a considerable savings in time. Obviously if you a lurker only then not signing in will aleviate the problem.

This problem still exists and the ides of March are near upon us.
As I said above I consider it a MAJOR pain in the arse. Perhaps I am the only one who thinks so. However I doubt it.

Any progress on a fix yet Andy? Or should we quit expecting one?
