I hate it on small screens. You can't get rid of the huuuuuuuuge zoom %age thing, even though it's taking up half your screen. There are other things that can't be changed, even if you install third-party stuff. Classic theme restorer is a decent college try, but it's fighting a battle that should never have happened.

I also suspect that the subject line sometimes acts differently to the body. But heck, I can't be bothered debugging my own shit, why would I bother with whipdice's?
