Mine is okay - Firefox.

Perhaps a glitch that needs reporting. Smile

So far, the most obvious answer

Nowt to do with FF etc;

Possibly the reason why, apart from the home page, one's user name (next to the avatar) is a live link (something I reported when the upgrade occurred)

Err no.. the reason is because only the homepage and Directories have completly moved to the new design.
The rest of the site is using an intermediate, non-responsive design.

It's to annoy you into never buying into the Olympus camp.

Works on me, I bought a Jaffa cake instead Tongue

Anyone else find the new made for mobile devices homepage extremely dire.

If anything is going to drive people away from reading anything whatsoever on any site, It's gotta be a crummy home page that hurts the eyes and makes no sense.

I am no stick in the mud, Change is always a welcome thing " Sometimes ", However that applies to change for the better, This latest incarnation of our homepage " Sucks " .

I can't say for sure as I didn't see it, but I'm guessing the advert was a flash based one? If so then that'd explain it, it's down to the way the browser handles flash which is technically another program running inside the browser (runs as it's own process) and in certain combos of browser + flash plugin it always draws it on top rather than obeying the normal z-index hierarchy on how items should be stacked for display.

A very sensible answer, rather than the mine's OK or submit a report (which I actually did in the end)

I have my moments Smile

It's about time flash was put out to pasture really, it has served its' purpose and had its' day. There's no need for it these days with HTML5s support for video and drawing canvases.
