  1. If you are concerned that a "special" thread might get lost in space with the switch to new software, here are browser specific instructions for how to save them to your computer:

    Internet Explorer and Firefox:

    Click on File (top left)
    Click on Save Page As
    Choose wherever you want to save the page (I used Documents)
    Click Save


    Google Chrome:

    At the top right of the window, you should see an icon that looks like 3 horizontal bars?
    Left click once on it and it should drop down a menu.
    Click "save page as".
    Once the destination folder window opens, click "Save"


    TIp - change the file name if you want to make it easy to find later.

    @Mocha aka Cold Play - do you have the whole browser menu selection of file/edit/view/history/bookmarks/tools/help? I'm just wondering why you might not have it...I'm assuming you're using Mozilla Firefox. I do have 'Save Page As' option...

    I did not have the full menu but just searched for why and found if you right click on a single menu line it restores that. I then did save as and it worked. Thanks.
