    An Australian told me I had to post this here as well as where I originally put it, so here goes:

    Hmm, as I was trying to skip through this forum, say, 4 pages at a time, I discovered that when I got beyond 6 pages (but not 6 pages before the end), my only options were to go forward 1 or 2 pages or go to the end. I'd like to be able to jump more than 2 pages if that's possible without cluttering things up too much, of course!

    Or maybe I should be able to say "go forward/backward n days/weeks/months?"

    ***************************

    Another minor point: on the current latest version of Firefox, when I am entering a post that is a bit longish, it doesn't autoscroll and I find a line starts getting covered up by that tool bar on the bottom.

    I've noticed that a few times two, and someone else did, so at least three people have encountered the bug.

    I agree about the skip posts issue too, I've run into that.

    Have you clicked the page number arrows? That flips the page counter forward or back and then you can click on the page number you want.

    The OP wishes to skip multiple pages, hence arrows are clumsy method.
