Yes, that's right.

If a browser window isn't wide enough, (or the screen has been zoomed in to make the text bigger) the postings will now snuggle themselves under the avatar and the details of the poster. If you make the browser window wider then they go back to being next to the avatar and the details of the poster (or zoom back to 100% again).

It does this to accommodate people with smaller screens (like mobiles and tablets) - or even for people who want to squash their browser screens a bit narrower for that matter.  :)

Great stuff - I'm glad you figured it out anyhow. My apologies if my tinkering is making things more difficult.

 ;D Hi again Trystan,  I have not enlarged anything,  the screen was always "Full screen " including New Replies and Messages etc it is now squeezed in to only include Profile.

Prior to any tinkering I could always view the whole Tool Bar which I can only now see in landscape?

As stated previously,  just like this posting I have worked my way round it!

I didn't see it as difficult nor you tinkering Trystan, I just thought I was having a slight brain dysfunction, or a poltergeist making lots of  ;D ;D mischief and I was going daft!

Keyboard,

This is still on your mobile, is that what you mean? And the toolbar, you mean the Menu Bar (Home, Forum Search Profile etc)?

Hi Trystan,  thank you for your caring and concern, yes indeed as I view forum page it is exactly as I described in portrait ok in landscape,  was perfectly ok in portrait prior to my first post on this thread?
