I am not sure if the proposed update has taken place, or not?
I can confirm that the hyperlink button dumps me out of the browser.
Another quirk I have noticed is that advanced search no longer works on my mini iPad.
Once I have filled in searched term and user name I am dumped onto the forum home page. (Where the articles appear.)
Bit annoying, will check soonish if it also happens on my PC.:shrug:
