It was only a suggestion (that admittedly got mentioned a few times
too many). I have filled three bugs in reference to the issues I
reported (the Slashdot bug has been fixed on Slashdot's side).

[GTK] Post editing doesn't work on vBulletin forums -
[GTK] Quick Reply double posts on vBulletin forums -
[GTK] Grey box flashes on left hand side of AVSForums -

These bugs are the last things that are keeping me from switching to
Epiphany completely (I despise the font rendering in Firefox, but
these issues have forced me to use Firefox for the forums for the
forums I frequent). :P

Thank you for your great work,
