    Default Can no longer see prior posts when replying to thread:

    I was replying to a post and out of curiosity I ticked a small button on the lower right (Looked like angled lines or mountains on the button It is not the window resizing button).

    Now when replying to a post I can no longer see any prior posts below it.... All I can view is the current post I am creating nothing prior further below it.

    What is this button (It seems to be missing) and how can I bring this feature back?

    Thank You

    I "assume" you mean the button with ^ .
    When that is true, I would assume that you now have to look for a button with the same image, but pointing down.

    Again, reading your experience, I did not try to use the button myself to confirm my assumptions.

    Hi, I actually have found out now that opening up another webbrowser tab next to the current tab that I can easily switch between the 2. It's better for entering in information as I don't need to scroll down and up to create a reply.

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you mean the “Topic Review (Newest First)” «show / hide» <^> button?
    • When I click it, the “Topic Review” disappears …
    • When I click it again, the “Topic Review” reappears …

    OK, the colour is actually <^> but, I'm using Firefox 78.10.0esr on the default Leap 15.2 KDE Plasma –
    • Is there something which your Desktop and/or Web-Browser is doing which is causing the “Topic Review” button to disappear when clicked?

    I just do not see this button “Topic Review (Newest First)” «show / hide» <^> button? Where and how can I get this feature to be enabled? I may definitely be overlooking where this is since I am not experienced with the layout of the forums here whatsoever. I suppose I could clear the Firefox 88.0 (64-bit) cache and cookies. I will do this now.

    Thanks

    Topic Review (Newest First)” is directly below the “Reply to Thread” – directly below the “Additional Options” section of the “Reply” window section …

    • Why are you using Firefox 88.0?
    • From where did you install it?

    Great News... I went to Firefox Webbrowser's toolbar -> Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy&Security -> Scrolled down to -> Cookies and site date then clicked "Clear Data" -> then -> Scrolled down to -> History and then clicked "Clear History".

    Then I logged back into the forums and yes the [“Topic Review (Newest First)” <show / hide> <^> button] is now appearing again.

    Thanks for your help with this.
