Hi Chris and fellow techies,
My long-blank-space-related problem continues, as described in
Here is a restatement of the problem:
It's only apparent in the logged-off mode. I first noticed it on 25 Dec 2019.
It only seems to be a problem with pages I tried to look at on that date.
The problem exists with Safari, Edge, and Firefox browsers.
A page that's all right (viz Layton-2014) has the Comments moved to the bottom on the left. The right hand column is not empty but has the following:
--The unlocked symbol.
--"Is William your ancestor? Please don't go away!"
--"Sponsored Search by Ancestry.com."
A page that's bad (viz Layton-1810) has all these items except the unlocked symbol moved to the bottom left, so the right hand column is empty. Merely having 2 columns changed into one column wouldn't be so bad. However:
The mouse pointer can successfully click on any item in the row with the unlocked symbol, or above that. Also it clicks successfully on the line "L > Layton > Andrew Jackson Layton" and below that.
Everywhere in between, the pointer refuses to be anything but an arrow. Attempts to click have no effect. I don't have a touch screen and can't explore whether the page would work okay with a touch screen whereas it doesn't with a mouse. Possibly the whole affected section is now working as if it's all one image?
… I note also that people with touch screens will be much less discommoded by having everything in one long column than people using a mouse.
