Congratulations Don, success in beta 18.30.0020! :tup: :appl: I'm wondering if the same should be done for Floating Preview. I auto hide the taskbar myself, but for those that don't, it may be worth considering. It looks a little odd being hidden behind the taskbar. Thanks.

I could do it, but should I? I see no other non-fullscreen window that covers the taskbar. I think no window except borderless fullscreen should do that.

Talked to them. No blacklist, nothing. And they can reach the site. So it's somewhere in my place. None of my machines here can reach it. Will ask the neighbors...

In the meantime, can anybody get anything useful out of this?

Seems to work well till San Francisco and then... trouble... ("Zeitüberschreitung" = time exceeded)

PS: the problem is Las Vegas: https://db-ip.com/205.129.20.42
(don't they say 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'? this also is true for my ping...)

The strange thing is Floating Preview on Windows 10, is displayed physically behind the taskbar whereas other apps like Xyplorer, IE, and Chrome come up on top of the taskbar. When I say on top here I mean on top vertically. I hide the taskbar so I don't care. Maybe Mesh or others wouldn't care if they don't use Floating Preview. If I didn't hide the taskbar and I used Floating Preview, I'd want my photos to come up either on top (vertically) or preferably in front of the taskbar so they're not actually covered by the taskbar which is what is happening now. Thanks Don.

Here in Win8.1 the taskbar is semi-transparent so it's no big deal visually.

Can you post a screenshot of the problem?

I have my taskbar semi transparent in Windows 10 as well. So if your images in Floating Preview are coming up behind the taskbar (not on top vertically) in Windows 8.1, there no need to post you a screenshot since they are the same. I agree not a huge deal visually unless someone else who actually uses that configuration would like to see images displayed in front of the taskbar.

This is _exactly_ what I saw yesterday and still see today. However, browsing nevertheless works.

Frankly, I don't get it (both your and my observation) .

I could now reach the site with my phone in another WLAN some kilometers from here. So, it's not my phone, not my browser, not my settings, not my identity. But something in my flat, or in my house, or in my street, or in my city. Working on it...

BTW, yes, I did a Windows reboot and a router reboot.
