|Resetting display mode|
I accidentally switched the display properties on the "President Trump" thread to linear mode. And with well over 3000 posts in that thread, it simply doesn't load, no matter how patiently I wait.
Is there any sort of back door I can use to reset the display properties for that thread? Everything else is working fine.

|I guess I didn't know that setting was thread specific. |
FWIW: I always view the forum in linear mode and it loads fine for me.
Edit: Just checked. At least for me, when I change display modes, it changes for all threads. So, maybe go to a smaller thread that loads for you and change it there. Then go back to the Trump thread.

the server will take quite a bit of time to prepare a 3000 post data stream. if there isn't enough memory on the server to allow everything to fit in RAM then some disk spooling is going to be required. that's going to take time. chances are that your client side device will timeout before the task is complete... provided that the server doesn't choke on that much data.
most web sites don't allow threads to become this long because the result is degraded server performance and latency. we've been turning a blind eye to that here.
your only option at the client end is to lengthen the timeout interval on your device. from an administrative standpoint, what's needed is to lock down the thread and continue the topic in a new thread.

|I suspect you're right, Bob.|
I looked for timeout options in Firefox but couldn't find any.

|IIRC it's one of those items that can only be set using about:config.|
I don't know if this still works or not:
