Have pages box also on top of pages. So don't have to scroll down to bottom of page to select page/last page.

Interesting. I thought I had seen some threads without the page shortcuts at top or bottom (I forget which), but now I'm not seeing them.

@morrobay -- can you link to a thread where you are seeing this now?

@Greg Bernhardt -- Was there a recent change that fixed this?

You have shown the static element which is not at all what he is asking for. He wants a dynamic one that stays visible as you scroll down the page, not one that just scrolls off the page as soon as you start scrolling down.

But... we do?
Example thread
Not on mobile:

Of course, screen space is much more limited on mobile, so adding a page navigation button might push the relevant information further down that would be ideal.

If there's no Page 2, there's no button for Page 2.

@morrobay: We could have skipped a lot of guessing if you would have told us directly that you mean the mobile version.
I don't use the mobile version, but it's probably to save space. @Greg Bernhardt will know more.

I don't share that interpretation.

I don't see how else you CAN interpret "Have pages box also on top of pages. So don't have to scroll down to bottom of page to select page/last page. "

So, @morrobay, how 'bout you jump in here and tell us what you DO mean if you don't mean what I think you mean?

See post #9. Not about page box being visible while scrolling down a page. But at the top of each page, have page box like at bottom of pages.

The mobil version also does not have math and Greek alphabet symbols when clicking on gear.
You can get the Greek alphabets by simply enabling Greek language in the keyboard.

I agree having it at the top would be nice.

What we need is a "return to top" link at the bottom of a page. This was something that was always drilled into me about web page design "never leave a person stuck at the bottom of a page without a simple "click" available to take them back to the top. I HATE having to scroll back up to the top if I want to re-read the first post, or see something else available at the top that's not at the bottom. The page links serve this purpose if there is more than one page, but many threads are just one long page (like this one right now).

Ah. Gotcha. You'd rather do it the hard way.

That option is always there - a floating button appears on the RHS of the page when you start scrolling up (both on Android web version and desktop version):

I don't get that on my workstation running Firefox under Windows 10 Pro. Where do you get it? OOPS ... never mind me. I wasn't even here.
