No more expanded threads in "Recently Active Threads" (in "Root & node" mode) without Javascript

A few days ago, I could see the all the new nodes already expanded on "Recently Active Threads" in "Root & node" mode. I had Javascript on in Firefox 3 preferences; actually denied Javascript using "NoScript" plugin.

Now I see that the thread listing is pre-collapsed. With Javascript disabled (either in Firefox preferences or via NoScript), all I get to see is the parent post.

Please reinstate old view (which presented usable "Recently Active Threads" with replies to OP expanded in the display without the need of Javascript).

    Here is a local workaround as bookmarklet, save as html file, open file in browser, drag link to toolbar/bookmarks
    <a href="javascript:(function(){%20%20var%20e=document.getElementsByTa +gName('a');for(var%20i=0;i<e.length;i++){var%20a=e[i];if(a.className= +='toggle'){var%20id=a.hash.replace(/^#/,'');a=document.getElementById +(id);if(/^ul\d+$/.test(id)){a.className='expanded';}}}%20%20})()">exp +RAT</a>
    function expRAT() { var e = document.getElementsByTagName("a"); for (var i = 0; i < e.length; i++) { var a = e[i]; if (a.className == "toggle") { var id = a.hash.replace(/^#/, ""); a = document.getElementById(id); if (/^ul\d+$/.test(id)) { a.className = "expanded"; } } } }
    Recently the aesthetic decisions for Anonymous Monk have been getting worse.

      Recently the sad state (stated in OP) returned. So I tried the above non-fix|workaround; it works. Thanks much.

    A few moments ago I was pleasantly surprised to see the old view again. If that state would be permanent, I thank the people involved for their effort.

      It is a setting. One that you share will all other anonymous monks. It will change with the whims of whoever happens to figure out how to change it (until we fix the bug that lets it be changed at all when anonymous). If you don't like that, get a throw-away e-mail address and think up a login name.

      - tye        

        If I understand your post correctly, the bug fix would keep the threads collapsed (for unsigned users) by default?

    Yesterday I noticed "Page Settings" near the bottom of "Recently Active Threads" page where one can (set the duration, and) uncheck toggle button option and get the expanded threads. If that is to remain usable for users not logged in, thank you.
