New forum layout induces epilepsy attack RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scrolling a page with threads with a preview opened in Firefox on XP causes the gray thread highlight to flicker badly.  It is *really* painful to watch, 10 Hz I'd guess, one core running at 100%.  It flickers on IE7 too, though not nearly as bad.  Perhaps you can make the highlight white for FF, I don't have much of problem telling what thread my mouse cursor is pointing to.

  • While I'm at it, the top answerer list blinking on and off is extraordinarily annoying too.  It is like trying to ignore one of those Yahoo adverts yapping at the corner of your eye.  Updating it once an hour is plenty good enough for any kind of forum activity.

  • This appears to be fixed (by various updates over 3+ years). Thanks!
