@Greg Bernhardt one thing I noticed is that to dismiss notifications you now have to click through to the actual threads, instead of them automatically dismissing themselves once you press the bell button. Was that an intentional change? 😜

I have noticed too and need to investigate.

Also, while posting a new thread, the summary field is present twice. Probably once is enough.

You can modify that setting in your personal preference:

oooh, thanks!

Similarly when posting in the homework forums the "homework statement" and "relevant equations" fields also each appear twice; it's the second one that works.

Did you already fix it Greg, or is it browser dependent? Using FireFox on my Win10 laptop it looks okay:

Also, first time In the morning they are dated "Tomorrow". I don't remember that happening before. Not a big problem, but maybe a clue.

I must admit I'm having problems not being able to see the preview and edit the post at the same time. Is there a way to get both on the screen at the same time?

Inserting a link in a fresh edit window yields a pulldown that doesn't go outside the edit window:

to click on !

It can be worked around if you notice a scrollbar has appeared, but I find it unexpected behaviour ...

I think this is due to a change I made today. It is not expected behavior. Looking into fixing it.

The display should always be in the local time zone you set in your profile. A post can never have been made tomorrow in your set time zone.

In the Trophies section, some icons are not visible. In addition, the number of trophies earned out of total number of trophies under a certain category always remains 1 out of 1:

Not a major issue, by the way.

I see no place for time zone in my profile page.

Another tiny issue:

Suppose I have one alert. As soon as I click on the thread, the alert is cleared. Before the upgrade, the red dot beside the bookmark was cleared when the alert was cleared. Now, that red dot stays until I click on another link within PF, after which it is cleared.
