I use Firefox at home (where I had the notification problem only) and Edge at work (where I had both problems).
Weird. I use both of those browsers as well and neither of those things are happening to me on either one. You might want to try clearing your cache on both browsers.

There is a new version of the forum software ASFN is running on. The new version will be installed in the next few days. There will be some differences with it and will be some new learning curves with it as well.

The theme(look) needs to be updated as well. It will still have the same look but also needed to be redone with this new update.

I know some will not like it right off the bat, but please give it some time.
Me likey - new format is less of a memory hog.

Is everything
This. I'm color blind and it is very difficult for me to differentiate the two.... Dark mode for me.
I'm having a tough time with these color options. The light mode is basically unusable, extremely hard to read. The dark mode is just a gloomy mess and the contrast makes my eyes water, but at least it is readable so it beats the light blue.

The user names font color for non-contributors is black, so you can't read it against a black background, lol. Not sure all this was thought through very well. I hope I can get used to it because for now it's rather uncomfortable on the eyes.

more customization options would be nice. I didnt notice not being able to read usernames until now. should be white or blue IMO

The new shell isn't responding to me very well either. I'm on a 40 Mbps line and everything else works well.... This site is devinetley sluggish for me.

The site BEFORE the upgrade was sluggish for me for a few days. Kept getting random errors. I think that problem started before the upgrade. It's actually running a bit better for me since the upgrade. This new version is lighter on the memory load and cpu cycles for me.

It appears the font color for usernames has been fixed on dark mode. I'm seeing everyone as white now, except staff members are red. Contributers have a banner under their name and avatar but are also white.
