    Actually that's a good spot Ray. You aren't going mad, it's a slight inconsistency I overlooked when I changed the home page over.

    If you click on HOME in the menu you get a different menu when you switch to FORUMS. If you look at the two options below, it proves the point.

    I'm sorry I missed that Ray, will get it sorted as quickly as I can today :)

    @Boysie

    It's fixed now. I think "Recent Posts" makes more sense than "Latest Threads", so I have decided to use that term instead!

    nope it wont work
    Now it has got angry and wont even open them
    I'm using IE10 as IE11 it conflicts with Kaspersky
    They might have fixed the issue now, it switched off kaspersky

    I don't actively use IE because it's appallingly bad and insecure. We will have to see if anyone updates this thread with similar issues...

    I do completely understand your reasoning Ray.

    Chrome >> Firefox >> anything else >> Internet Explorer

    :) Easy with chrome no issues:p
    Like most near things i find the toolbar not that friendly
    i suppose its just me again, finding my way around
    I've lost the Home button, i understand that is an issue with chrome

    I agree the tool bar isn't that intuitive with it being in the top right corner. But at least all the options are then in one place!

    I have sorted out a few things in settings
    I just need to stop my finger clinking the IE icon
    On my IPad I don't have this problem, I rarely use the browser if that's the correct term
    On the PC habits are a pain

    Doesn't usually matter as it will generally redirect you to the UK version if you choose Google.com

    Did not even notice that you had changed that, I just always click on the text on the right of 'What's New' as Boysie says, habit.
