    Now that the new user interface has been in place for several months, it seems that the fixes have stopped happening.

    Is anything on the To-Do list about these items?

    1. Crying Smiley doesn't convert to an image, you're just left with ;/(
    2. Submitting a move (when you've not made the actual move) wipes out the long message you've just laboriously typed.
    3. Submitting an illegal move also wipes out any typed messages.
    4. Message Log and Game Log malfunction in some games, by going into an extended "wait" mode which never ends. Because this doesn't happen in every game it's hard to identify the trigger cause.

    Any others?

    Sometimes in Firefox, if you hit the 'back' button, it will recover the data typed into forms. Just ignore the warnings about re-sending data.

    When it comes to browsers -
    Internet Explorer comes free with Windows, it's a Microsoft product and works with just about everything, but there are few frills.
    Firefox is a free download from mozilla.org which is a bit like Linux, you can do lots with it but everyone's version is different. When the new user interface arrived here, I had to mess around for a couple of weeks removing add-ons before I could get it to work properly. On the other hand, it's nice to have the add-ons which give you lots of extra thingies on RedHotPawn.
    And then there's Chrome. It can have some of the add-ons, but it's not half as clever as Firefox. More likely to behave itself though.
