All of the little buttons like “New Thread,” “Private Message,” and “Post Reply” are missing. It’s been like this for the last week. I can post a thread like this when I click on the spot where the “New Thread” button is supposed to be but the button isn’t there. Also, the the little symbol that turns orange when a new reply is posted is missing.

It might slow down graphics for a couple of days but may speed everthing else up. hth
