Did you guys finally do it? My 'Front Page' is no longer the beloved page I've been using for years.

If you scroll down the page to the footer, you'll see a Classic View link that you can click to stay on the Classic version of the site.

Thank you, I see the link. It's not working under Firefox, but is in Chrome. Although, that might not be a good comparison since my Firefox connects via France. (Maybe some GDPR programming you might have in place; triggered?) Again thanks. I will just use Chrome for now.

Hi luckygecko. When you were logging in on Firefox and seeing the Redesign version of the site, were you ever presented with the popup message shown in the below linked post?

I can't give you a good answer. I was bombarded with those type of popups, thus if one came up for SD, it would have went the way of the rest in my mind; out of 'site' out of mind. Smilie

Hi luckygecko,

Can you go back to FF and visit the site again? You may initially see the Redesign version, but if you click on a deal link, you should see the site revert to Classic (assuming you're logged in and confirmed you are not in EU).

Cleared cookies, selected no to EU prompt, and also clicked on Classic Link and a deal link. I do not see any noticeable change.

Does your FF still connect via France IP? That's most likely the reason. Can you confirm that you see Classic via another browser?

Yes, and Yes. I just re-routed my connection in FF to a US gelocated IP and the 'classic' interface comes back. You may know, but this seems more of a bug than feature? Unless of course, your Classic interface does not meet GDPR compliance somehow even though I indicated I was not in the EU (although I do most likely geolocate there with that connection). Only you guys would know that.


If you need me to do any more troubleshooting, please let me know.
