When I do a search of a forum everything is scrunched up

    I find a wealth of very useful material by searching past forums. But when I do so, the text is all scrunched up in the middle of the page, and lines are left out. Like for example if a sentence stretches across the page 120 characters long, I will only get about 100 of them (that is just an example, not something I have measured). What can I do to get all the valuable text in my forum search results?

    If you are talking about the current search engine(google), it is only temporary while AD is making upgrades. It is a page in a page. Use the arrow key or the bar at the bottom.

    It is a pain, but it should not be for long.
    Happy burning.

    Slooooow and knocking me off. Right in the middle of a reply. Now if it is real slow I copy my replies before responding. It always happens when I have typed a long reply..
    Damm that Murphy!

    Actually I been using that trick for years, not just here, though. A lot of forums kick you out just when you have written your longest post ever...
    Edit: Yahoo mail does it too, so be warned..

    don't get me started on yahoo mail. I've had SBC DSL for over 5 years now. Its always been great, until they inked a deal with Yahoo, so I had to change all my email addresses, and use Yahoo's mail service, which is HORRIBLE! Their junk filter is a joke! I hate Yahoo with a passion.
