Bug: Browser goes into loop
Browser gores into loopIn "Welcome To The Latest Forum Features" I clicked withdraw on a topic - "Line Endings" - which I had created in that forum, was presented with a withdraw screen and, when I clicked "Back to the forum" the browser flashed and redrew the screen again and again. When I closed it down and restarted it and re-entered this form the topic was still there but couldn't be replied to.
Overly long URLs
We really could do with something that captures those, if we miss them. I don't like overflowing text.

I get something similar when I click the "in reply to" link.
It makes using the "newest" ordering rather tricky - especially when people don't quote any of the post they're referring to...
What browser / version / OS are you using?
> What browser / version / OS are you using?
Currently Firefox 3.6.24 on Fedora 14, also running Flashblock.
 I always used to allow Flash on sites like ElReg, because I understand you need to run ads like that to keep the revenue lowing in. But then it got *so* intrusive, it had to go...
Since there was alreay a topic about this, I'm posting here.
I've just got the same behaviour. I went to the fanboi topic and posted about my experience with ostrich (don't ask!)
Before posting, I sorted by most recent article first, if that makes any difference, and once I'd posted, I got the dreaded loop.
Running XP-Pro, and IE8. It doesn't have any plugins for blocking adverts or whatnot, and it doesn't have flash either.

That's the boy.
I just got a loop clicking the "in reply to" link whilst in "newest" sort order.
Copying that link, switching to "threaded" mode, then pasting the link into the address bar got me what I wanted.
It's a bug...
Thanks for the catch - have forwarded to bugmeister Murray
