    I use Adblock Plus and have had no issues whatsoever, today or any other day that I can remember and I'm on here every day. Does it make any difference that I live in UK?

    The app is broken. Get an "invalid license" message then the app shuts off. Sucks, because I access the forum probably 90% of the time via the app.

    1) There are known issues with the Old Style, we would like to fix it, but in the meantime you can use the New Style or an ad/script blocker like has been suggested. The Old Style has never been supported by us 100% and it never will be, we might even get rid of it. It was just a temporary transition from the prior software.

    2) There is a known license problem with the mobile app and also Tapatalk. I'm not sure when that will be resolved, but it should be only a week or two.

    We have other priorities right now that will make more sense soon. It isn't that we won't resolve these, but when. There have been things out of our control, we please ask you to be patient.

    If you are unwilling to try the New Style to resolve the performance issues I suggest you just self-quarantine. :D ;)

    I am using the New Style and on my iPad the site is being almost unusable.
    Screen jumping around and I end up clicking wrong section because of that, back out, error occurs, reloads, typing response and lose it....

    *Edit:
    apparently photo issue has been solved with recent add on, so must just need to clean up old scripts!
    *


    jumping around bug is especially worse if a thread contains photos linked via url instead of uploading to site. This is why we require uploading photos and try to prevent linking photos, they are often very large and must be loaded from another server. Once the photo finally loads it changes size of post and causes page to shift. This also sometimes happens with ads, so we are trying to figure out which scripts to remove or replace. But we really need to crack down on photos linked by url, this will help load speed tremendously as well as preserved threads for the future, no dead photo links.

    Or NOT.
    The issues are there just as much on pages with NO images EXCEPT for the FChat-supplied adverts.

    yes, but you and a handful of users talk in a tone like everyone having problems. actually hardly anyone is having problems, but yes we aren't giving up. we would like it to work on every style, desktops, phones, iPads, every type of browser, browsers you haven't updated since 2006, every security/cookie setting, every 3rd party virus/firewall program, and even for you guys that clicked on the pop up "Download video of race horse with massive erection" and now your computer has been buggy ever since.

    Just noticed that the ads are gone for the moment, and loading is back to "Normal for other sites" quick, and an absence of the constant ever-loading/reloading.
    Seems that we have an answer.

    We are currently working with development to remove all but essential scripts, especially on the Old Style as that seems to be where the majority of problems are.

    then you don't use the new version, new one still has all ads. I've told everyone since day 1 of the problems that the new style didn't have problems.

    if you are on the old style go bottom left of any page you are on click on "Old" and change it to "New".

    I love 'dark' style but has some issues with certain text colors, low priority as less than 10 users choose it. but it is definitely easier on the eyes!

    it certainly takes awhile to get use to as you have been use to one version for 20 years. The new style is 2018 and not 2000 though, it operates 100% with better functionality and more responsive mobile. if the colors are too much for you try the Blue or Dark versions.

    Weird, I believe you all that you've been experiencing strange things, personally I have had no issues.

    Using Chrome on a PC and Pixel 4...

    Definitely report directly to us any specific issues you're dealing with!

    Ross was right but it had been going on for weeks. I am noticing the last two days things are much improved.
