Strange issue with comment threads on AppleVis and some other websites

Other Apple Chat

hello applevis community.

I was wondering what's up with the comments the past couple of weeks?

The comments themselves are fine, it's the order of the comments that appear strange, at least using firefox under windows.

Let's say there is an app entry, followed by a group of comments, then you have the text fields to reply.

After those text fields, you have older comments listed.

This can get confusing, especially if you haven't been reading the comments for a couple of days.

I'm not sure if I changed something in my preferences or if something was changed on the site.

The previous option, where you could read straight through the thread was a lot better.

Anyway, was wondering if I'm the only one that's noticed this?

Forum posts appear to be OK.

In fact, I think the forums are the only posts not affected.
PS, I wasn't sure where to post this, there doesn't appear to be a site feedback forum.

I think this is an issue with Firefox 48. It's been loading different parts of web pages in strange orders since the update, and this happens on Windows and Linux. hit f5 to refresh the page and it usually comes up right. A day ago, the last comments were at the top of the page when I opened one of the threads, so I've seen it happen here. Seems like Amazon does it a lot, though.
