    The sidebars are missing when I access Free Republic with my laptop and desktop. Checked the laptop my wife uses, and no problem there. The settings on all three appear to be the same. Anyone else experiencing this? Free cheese to anyone who can help me. Thanks in advance (thanks also from my sister and her moose).

    one man's opinion....
    First of all, before anyone gets upset, this thread is not a complaint, not a critique. FR works fine for me. I'm a happy camper. But I am curious as to how others navigate around the site, and what, if any tweaks might be worth considering; and maybe provide some food for thought for the folks in charge.
