Just tried 4.0b12 here and it looks OK to me - no problem with rendering
or with the redirect for login.

i think there’s a problem/bug with the forums, that sometimes after login
you don’t get redirected to where you came from. it also happens when
visiting a forum link sometimes, w/o being logged in. in that case, one
gets sent to the home page instead of the linked thread. i seem to
remember there’s a bug report about this, and there’s definitely old
threads in one of the forums.
Yes this behavior occurs every time for me. When I search something in google and some opensuse forums link comes up, if I click that link, it takes me to home page of forums page and not to the actual thread. This happens if I am not logged in. But if I click on that link again (from search results) or anyother opensuse thread link it takes me to the actual thread page… even if I have not logged in.
which took me precisely to the exactly correct place in the forum (not
signed in) but then when i sign in instead of being returned to the
correct place i arrive at a “Page not found” and have been for months…
that problem has been documented in the forums problem forum (off and
on) for a very long time…

Yes I was getting the page not found error; I never got this with any of the version 3 Firefox browsers; I still have major flash issues with this new Firefox; it is so annoying I wish I could dump Firefox 100%;
My problem is I am used to using it but eventually that might change for me; Opera 11 does not have these issues so it is not my system.

i’m pretty sure it’s got nothing to do with the FF version, but with the
state of the database or cache on the server, and what cookies you happen
to have active at the time.
re. browsers, i don’t really prefer one over the other. i’m using FF,
opera, (google-)chrome/ium, and increasingly konqueror; they’re all quite
good. since i’m mainly developing web sites / applications, it’s handy to
see differences in these browsers, and often i need to access a site under
different user accounts, which is easiest with different browsers.
