    I'm asking because the theme seems to have changed from a nice easy readable one, to one that makes my eyes hurt :( I've changed to a petrol blue one which is slightly less eye bleedingly painful. Bright green is not particularly helpful for accessibility reasons either.

    Can you either make more themes available or give us the option to use the old one?

    We haven't changed anything about the themes/forum software recently.
    You can (and could always) change styles to make the forum look different. Personally I like the vB 3.x - Fluid theme. The theme changer is at the lower left corner of your screen.

    further snooping/testing:

    The theme I have used since day dot is NBR_xenFoogle. It is currently working fine, but heres what happens: - when I close my FF window, and then open NBR in another, theTech Target cookie dialogue appears which is bright green. Something is causing that to corrupt my screen (make all text green) I'll get screenshots shortly.

    The only way to get back to normal is to re-select and then apply the theme again:eek: WITHOUT closing my Firefox window. The cookies dont seem to persist which is my issue so I will look into it.

    Yep the Tech target privacy notice is what is breaking the theme.

    Workaround:

    1) On first visit corruption happens. press "Ok" to accept the terms - Site looks like my screenshot above.
    2) Hit refresh in Firefox and the page reloads and displays the NBR_xenFoogle as it should.
    3) Close window and you have to start at 1) again.

    This is in firefox Quantum, I haven't checked chrome yet, brb.

    Yep does exactly the same in Chrome and MSEdge, with the same work around - and I have no add-ons or blockers in those browsers.

    I've been told the privacy pop-up is a feature of Tech Target sites and should go away once OK is clicked. I need confirmation from other users that is a problem before I can pursue further. Personally I have not been able to replicate it...
