Anyone whose viewing is messed up, go to tools on your toolbar and TURN OFF COMPATIBILITY VIEW. That's it. That's all.

Ever since I turned 50 I have trouble viewing anything up close. Will this solution work for me?

No, it had nothing to do with the compatibility view setting. We tried that on multiple computers with different operating systems and different IE browsers, particularily IE 8. Others weere using Safari and Firefox while the problem was still occurring. Changing the compatibility view back and forth and rebooting had no effect on the problem. Eveerything has been working correctly again for awhile now with no further changes in the client computers. So, something had to have been changed in the datastream being deelivered to the client browsers.

What browser? What OS are you running?

I am running the latest Chrome in WinXP and also in Linux, and I don't have a toolbar, or a "Compatability View" setting.

The problem is FREE REPUBLIC. It is fundamentally broken.

I got ahold of your camera and took this picture of you -- I don't think I am having viewing problems.

Worked for me instantly. Turned it off, clicked back on text and voila! A miracle.

"The problem is FREE REPUBLIC. It is fundamentally broken."

I agree. Recently when someone pings to a thread there are 2-3 pings come up from the same pinger for the same article.

I will bet you this will all clear up after the Freepathon.

Perhaps you had The Problem and the Compatibility View Problem. So, when the The Problem ceased and the Compatibility View Problem continued, you would still have seen a problem until the Compatibility View Problem was also turned off.

That’s to be expected when you have the undead and the parasitic vampires voting multiple times for Obama and his evil Democrat Companions.

I know the problem. It is Christmas vacation form the schools and the teenagers are trying to see how many computers and sights they can screw up.

WTH is a compatibility view? Something to make liberals appear sane?

For that, you need Jackie D or Wild Turkey, maybe some 151. Lots of it.
