If there is more than one post it also previews the last post. So there would be two tabs. In this example it is a single post topic so it doesn't show First and Last tabs.

Outof curiosity (& boredom-insomnia...too much CAFFEINE lol) I tried this in all my browsers and OS's--Win 7 & XP, Mac OSX, FF 4, IE9, IE8, Opera & Safari--and they all showed the preview...with one small difference-- In Opera & Mac OSX Snow Leopard the preview showed not right above the click icon thingy, but waaay up on the top of the forum page, hidden from view.

I found them! Umm ... I found it?

I only see them one at a time, very pale (transparent), and only for the thread that my mouse pointer is resting in.

Thanks for the tip! :thumbup2:

The only chemistry I studied in high school (about a MILLION years ago LOL) was the effects of hallucinogens on the human brain.
My "studies" consisted of the ingestion of large quantities of psychoactive narcotics. :crazy:
