Fwiw....

I am using ad-block with safari on my iMac and disabling/pausing ad-block allows the pages to load (and fwiw, without ads )

while I'm at it, here's another voice saying 'the orange reply button is distracting and intrusive.'
Yes, that's something I included in the tech ticket.

I agree.

Perhaps a compromise could be that they are colored yellow for the first few weeks they are active and then revert to just a regular white bar?

Hadnít considered the ones at the bottom. I was referring to the ones in each post. Quote and Quick Reply.

Regardless, the lack of consistency will be confusing also for new users and color challenged I would expect.

The main idea is to give users a more immediate, apparent reply option. I'd imagine most people wanting to reply to an individual post will just click "Quote"

Tried restarting Safari and rebooting 2017 iPad Pro 10.5 inch running iOS 12.4.

i can load the same page okay on Duckduck Go browser on same device.
Another here with this issue on my iPad with Safari. Pages display if I disable the AdBlocker but I will not do this as most Ad's on FT are really intrusive and make the site unusable.

is there a quick and easy way to do this on iPhone (iOS 12.4.1)?

general observation for the web/UI developers -- PLEASE DON'T PRESUME EVERY FTer ON A MOBILE DEVICE IS A "POWER USER" ... some folks simply may not have the ability to get to a laptop/desktop, but prefer the familiar look and feel of that interface without having to take less-than-instinctive actions to specially configure FT on their mobile devices


*********************

re the yellow "Announcement" bars: similar to the way the desktop version changes the font face from bold to regular when you view a page, would it be possible to remove the color after the user clicks on the announcement? that way only unread announcements would show in yellow ... that said, auto-expire of color after a week or so isn't a bad idea either

The dots ARE pretty small!
Distinguishing by font difference is still desirable.

Can someone please provide me with a screenshot of the blank page you get on Safari/Mac?

As I said, we're working on font style.

Aye, and sorry, I didn't mean to be pushy; I just wanted to emphasize that the red dot -although helpful- isn't a proper solution.
Appreciate the help and all the effort you are putting in!

"Reply" and "New Thread" buttons are now blue again (clear cache if still orange). and "Thread Closed" should appear red.

Thank you. I see the blue now, with no need to clear cache again.
