Personally, I won't preclude a "simple" browser issue. I don't have experiences with Chrome as it's by Google that I try to avoid. But pending on my used browsers - for Firefox even pending on the profile I use, I've different and quite often annoying experiences with XDA in general and DevDB is specific. Currently, my best experiences are with Firefox and a specially created profile for XDA; and for privacy reasons I don't do anything else but surfing XDA with this profile.

My secondary browser of choice is a portable"install" of the TOR browser, which of course is also Firefox based. The other benefit of TOR is that it will also help test region based issues with the net; in addition to the privacy.

All the obvious issues of duplication.

Now that I realise the above duplication, I noticed a duplicate post, also because they used such a large screen shot (a personal hate) that it was hard to miss, but the user has posted his question in both of the above threads. OK, so I'm a squeaky hinge...

Normally I would report duplicate posts, but in this case I could hardly hold it against them, and I wouldn't know which to report

I noticed that when you change the date format (eg. to European Short) in profile settings, it works in threads and posts, but it doesn't apply changes to the "Most thanked" element on the right side.
This different date format makes it a lot easier for me to read dates, is there a chance to have this fixed?

Just a thought... Maybe @bitpushr or @MikeChannon can elaborate/clarify on this a bit further...

Hi all - I've got a bug on one of my DevDB threads. I recently uploaded a 32.34MB file to the downloads tab. It's been downloaded 9 times...and now it's showing a 404 error if anybody else tries to download it.
This is actually the 2nd time this has happened. I uploaded the same file yesterday and it hit 15 downloads before the 404 error.

Could somebody look into this please? The file's here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/dev...t/dl/?id=31832

Thanks!

Hi Svetius

Just a quick message to say that the bar at the top of xda forum style 2015 hides the thread location ie

General discussion > About xda-developers.com > XDA DevDB FAQ / Feedback / Bug Reports by svetius

makes it slightly awkward to go back when you have read 30 pages of threads.

I'm using an amazon hd8 ot sure if this is the same for other devices though.

Many thanks
