It only gives you a partial TSB, then wants you to sign up for AllData DIY. I can do that through AutoZone.

I just call my buddy Tony and ask him to print it for me.

It's good enough to know there is an issue, and the date of the TSB.

The front landing page comes up just fine, but none of the drop-down boxes have any selectable items from which one chooses the year, make , model, etc. Works fine on Chrome, not at all on Firefox (24.4.0 on redhat here at work) on Linux.

Chris, I got it to work on Win 7/Chrome, but it only gives the beginning of the TSB. If you click on the partner link, it takes you to a signup page for AllData DIY (owned by AutoZone). I'm like Jim, if I don't have it I have access to my transmission shop buddy's account.

My tiny netbook screen can't handle oversize images.
I have my page zoom set for comfortable reading.
It's fine unless someone posts something over about 1,000 pixels wide.
Happens to me on every page. I had to scroll right and left to read your post and to hit the quote button. My issue doesn't have anything to do with pictures. I'm guessing it has to do with the windows 7 display setting where I selected 125% for a default view..... Because I actually do other things on the computer than play on the internet, so internet zoom settings only go so far.

A plus for me is - If I had several pages up from FTE only those pages would lock up I would have to disable flash-player in order to have it run properly. Now its only a little slower but not stopping the page altogether

I just set my zoom with my touch pad.
It doesn't affect any other websites, with Firefox.

Just noticed the Rep and Report buttons changed color.

I was using them this afternoon.

All the other websites are fine for me, it's just FTE. I've got the display settings up for things like word, excel, outlook, etc. I use firefox zoom for webpages (ctrl +).

I like the change. The first page I navigated to was huge, side-to-side, but once I navigated to Page 2 of this topic, the size issue seemed to correct itself.

Since I can't add the attachment from the quoted post, I wanted to point out that if you're purchasing the 3-year membership, you're paying more than you would if you had purchased a 1-year membership three times. I like math, and I tend to notice these things. 1-year membership costs $19.99 and you spend $59.99 for a 3-three membership. $19.99 x 3 = $59.97. Just throwing my two-cents (literally) into the mix.

To squash the, "you're not a Supporter" arguments, I'm also not an employed person. I was laid-off November 2012 and have been watching every penny since that event.

That's bizarre.
I have a tiny screen, and no problems here using the same OS and browser.

MooseMan, you're missing the Tee shirt and bumper stickers you get for those 2c.

But, you neglected to mention the fact that with the three year membership, you get an FTE t-shirt, an FTE decal, and Larger avatar size. I'm big on math too, when you consider all factors though.

Gee. Thanks John. Now I have a complex.

Looks like my avatar is smaller than yours and many of the other guys here.
