This new version does the reply stuff differently. You used to be able to scroll down and read what you were replying to. Now it tries to make another browser window.
I turned something on that is supposed to make a scroll window appear, but I don't see anything.

Well, whatever it is supposed to do, it doesn't. I used to really like the way it did it before, but now I have to keep hitting the [BACK] button to see what was being talked about. Can we have it back like it was? Or a personal configuration option?
Please.

There is a new version coming out today (but I usually wait a few days) that fixes this. I've tried their beta and it does work.
In order to see the other messages, click on the "review topic" under your reply stuff. It will create a new window with the thread. Then you can bounce back and forth between the two.

Well, I wouldn't advise you to rush to a new version, but the current way does seem so clumsy.
