Last week my 'history' of posts extended a mere .. 7 days. Now I can get access to my 17 000-odd's worth of p...

I have reported a few times that quite a list of less common characters eg the pound sign, +with-, degree sign, now return a blank Preview - and can be annoying.

new post blocker discovered ..

As is known I use + and - together a lot, combined.

It is
Alt(NumLock)753
and is very handy
- until today.

In the Shiner thread I thought it was previewing with NO text due to inadvertent bad words.:oops:

It took a bit to trace this to .. (apparently any) Alt command.

michel, how old is your current system?
Is theO the only 'slow loader'?

For my third time (XP, W7 32, now W7 64, all from new setups) have ground to a crawl after three years in spite of daily cache clearing and lots of such actions.
