OSX? My padding looks like how it does on AA, and I haven't over-ridden any stylesheet settings for padding.

Really nice job! Only one small thing I saw...

At 480px wide, the Poster information takes up quite a bit of real estate—I'd change the configuration to the one you have for narrower widths sooner.
Are you resizing your browser by chance or is this on a device? I cannot replicate it, the responsive setting is 480px on narrow and adjust correctly for me.

I'm not seeing the padding issue, but I am on FF 28, having steadfastly refused to touch 29.

Look at this one, the number 187 box. There is no padding at all, while all others using single numbers look OK.

It seems to be inconsistent as though no padding is used for left and right, and in some areas single numbers look OK, while in other areas they look wrong (like in my other screen-shot posted).

GTB, link to that thread?

I accidentally updated mine and couldn't bother downgrading to FF 27 again. It isn't bad once you install something called "Old Firefox" onto it. It makes it look like the old one. Behaves nearly the same way too.

Yeah, at work it got forced on me and I managed to get some sort of "old style" skin to cover it.

If I wanted Chrome I'd use it (although I do have it installed).

Exactly, but Chrome is horrible with its memory usage. Saw it taking up 22 GB of RAM the other day. I do like ho FF 29 handle JS intensive pages, but I do not like the new color of the debugging tool. I preferred the dark blue look it had.

Because the look is just like Chrome and you can't easily move buttons around.
Not quite true. I don't know what you've installed for the old look, but mine allows everything to moved around. I can't even tell it's FF 29 aside from the new bookmarking method, which I abhor.

I stopped using mine when the old new style came out in 2010. The old menu is useful for very few things aside from legacy style extensions.

On latest version of Firefox on Ubuntu 14.04. I too see like GTB posted. But it is ok with me.

It may not be specific to this forum. I see XenForo.com shows same when you get into 3 numbers displayed.

Interesting note Alex. I am a bit torn myself between such front-end tools and back-end tools. It is a real hard call to make. On the one side, you definitely want to give quick and easily reached functions to your team (not available to the standard users), but on the other side, looking at it from an extensible system point of view, those functions go beyond the standard user functionality and thus, they are "packed" on top of a standard user view. This makes the general team functions a bit more complicated to extend, as it sets certain predefined UI boundaries, which you could leave quite a bit more open in a back-end environment.

Just seeing this.

It's not bad per-se, the problem is that there is no distinct role. I appreciate the efforts Kier and Mike have put in for delivering a quality product, but common sense would indicate that a developer has made the current UX difficult. As a moderator or admin, I shouldn't have to visit different modal boxes to get what I want. It needs to be unified in one box where I can adjust things quickly or send a spammer on their way. Essentially what they've done is simplify the click-to-click procedure for doing things. The lack of backend moderation control also makes the new process difficult. To view all names associated with an IP, I need to run the spam cleanup tool with a single option enabled. A large problem if you accidentally forgot to uncheck the other boxes and send a legitimate member on their way. Not to tarnish their effort or make this discussion a dig at XF as a software, but given this is a new implementation I expected less of a half-baked feature.

That is the problem of having administrative functions on the front end. They have to be "packed on top" and possible too compact and thus, might cause users to feel the way you do. It is a tightrope act.
