Thanks, Oliver.

Sorry to hear the central feedback page is not working for your particular configuration. Rest assured that it is working well on all the popular configurations we have tested so far. (Though I noted that there is an issue with the first line of text overlapping the comments when long article titles are displayed.)

I notice that the screenshot you posted is from before we deployed our last version on Thursday. Can you please post a recent screenshot from after this week's deployment, to see if anything has changed?

Also, can you please include the exact browser version number and operating system on Bugzilla when reporting issues like these? There are drop-down menus in Bugzilla that were created exactly for that purpose. I filled in 'PC' and 'Firefox' for you, but still need you to fill in the specific OS and give us a version number for Firefox.

Lastly, be sure to include this keyword in the keyword field in future reports, so it becomes more prominent for this phase of development: aftv5-1.5.

Thank for the clarifications.

I ran the feedback page through a number of Windows browsers (including yours) over and could not reproduce your issue. See attached screenshots (I asked for a small screen size -- 1024x768 -- to see worst case conditions: there are layout issues, but the functionality seems to work).

However, reports that this Win Firefox 7 add-on is known to cause stability or security problems: Java Platform SE 6 U21 -- do you happen to have it on, by any chance? Also, what is your screen size?

Apparently, this Java add-on causes instability on this Win 7 / Firefox 12 platform.

The attached screenshot shows FF12 on Win7 with 1600x1200 screen on

I cannot reproduce your issue, everything runs really smoothly on this reputable virtual machine, no problems selecting Featured posts, etc.

So it would be great if we could get confirmation from someone besides you that this platform doesn't work well. You may have something special on your machine that may not exist on mainstream configurations.
