    Given the unstable nature of some test builds, I should keep this separate from MacRumors Forums Theme Change and New Platform.

    Today I found a few problems with logged-in use of MacRumors Forums.

    I don't use Yosemite often enough to tell whether these problems have become noticeable as a result of recent changes to OmniWeb, or recent changes to MacRumors use of XenForo.


    The most noticeable problem occurs sometimes when attempting to reply inline. Some text can be typed and will be visible, but subsequent typing of any character causes the text field to scroll way down out of sight. For example, with reference to the following screenshot –

    – typing anything, e.g. use of the Space bar, after the word 'cast' caused the field to become invisible.

    That problem might be triggered by using the editing toolbar.

    Workarounds might include use of the 'More Options…' button.


    In the screenshots attached, symptoms should be obvious. I shan't guess the causes.

    On Mavericks, with an earlier test build of OmniWeb, I can't reproduce the symptoms.
