    Yay! That's great.

    I'm happy. Quotes look normal again too. Pictures are still centered and smaller though.

    Yeah, I was wondering if the pics being small is an issue or is supposed to be like that... Cuz they're a bit too small (height being capped to about 400px). :(

    Yeah, I'm not sure either. I'm getting what appears to be a variety of heights, but it does seem to be no higher than about 400/500...when everyone knows you need at least 600 for a decent looking shot! I really hope it goes back to normal soon. Any idea what's going on with the photos, @EA_Mai?

    Weird quotes and stuff are fixed for me too, but like others, pictures remain sized smaller for me as well.

    I'm on Firefox and every height is capped at 400px maximum or less (if the original is already smaller than that).

    Was using Microsoft Edge while waiting for this to be resolved. Saw a flurry of posts to this thread in notifications so I decided to try opening Firefox again. It works!

    @EA_Mai Thank YOU for keeping us updated regarding progress on the fixes and please be sure to pass along my sincere thanks to those who worked on getting this taken care of. MUCH appreciated. :)

    Haven't looked further than being able to have access so am not sure about images being different like others have mentioned.

    Just gone back to Chrome to check it, and it all looks okay.

    EDIT - yup, the last time it looked okay once I posted I got the red screen again, and this time I didn't!

    Thanks everyone for confirming Chrome and Firefox are back to normal for you and for sticking with us while we worked on getting this fixed!
    Quotes should be back to usual as well, please, let me know if you still see any weirdness.

    We will take a look at images next :)

    Will we ever know why that happened in the first place ?

    Thank you for getting this fixed. Hopefully the pictures will be fixed so that they are bigger and not centered in the middle unless the person posting them wants them centered... :)

    Hi again, another update!:

    As you noticed, pictures showed centered and smaller if they had a height bigger than 400px. This was a change that was introduced to the default settings of the platform we use for the forums - we have now reverted that change and pictures should show as usual again. Please, let us know if you see any weirdness with images.

    You mean the security warnings? The forums were mistakenly detected as unsafe by a security system both Chrome and Firefox use. That's why only those browsers were affected.


    Back to sharing awesim screenshots! :)

    Well, it had a distinct benefit for me! I now love my new Opera browser, so I'm going to keep it. B)

    That's the way I feel about Firefox. :)

    Glad to see it's fixed. Those warnings were getting annoying. Thanks @EA_Mai and anyone else that was involved.
