Bug: Image scaling in replies

In https://www.metabunk.org/threads/russia-and-ukraine-current-events.12289/post-271506
The images in my reply are not scaled to fit the panel, but in the post I'm responding to they are. I think the two should have the same behaviour (and find scaled preferable).

Mendel's HTML and my HTML for the <table> that contains the images are *identical*, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with what's generated, so I guess it's a CSS selector issue where we differ. I can sniff more...
yeah, it's when the table is nested in a quote that the scaling fails.
I generally manually scale back attachments to thumbnail size when I quote.

I might just take the approach of trimming out images when replying unless absolutely necessary, which would be very rare.
I did have a quick sniff around at the CSS, didn't find anything obvious, and then I got more invasive (removing classes from the tags to try to make the contexts more similar) and crashed my browser!

I'm dyslexic so readability is always a top priority for me. Some of these threads are very long and difficult to extract key data from without scanning back and forth over multiple pages. Is it possible to have an (optional) side bar to a thread that keeps key information, such as dates, locations, names, times, etc always visible? It might also reduce the amount of repetition.

Well, I am having that problem right now, and it is confined to Metabunk
I have had occasional episodes of slow - very slow - response from Metabunk. Usually clears in a few minutes. Also the same issue with other sites. Not occurring often or long enough duration to cause frustration. I've never attempted to try monitoring/data collection or any of the network tools to see if I can trace the blockage.

@FatPhil I am on android
ouch. you interact with mb on your phone? you should have added that pertinent data in our original comment to @Mick West to give him some idea of what he needs to check.

add: if you browse other websites while waiting for a load...doesnt that make the load go slower? (i dont browse the web on my phone, so i'm wondering)

I'm mostly on Android; no probs here. I wouldn't even have time to open a new tab before the metabunk page came up.

Loaded instantly. And I actually have pretty terrible internet right now.
Probably because they were cached. I use Cloudflare which generally speeds things up. If people are having issues, I normally suggest flushing the cache, clearing cookies, and trying another browser.
