Yep, another (*&*&^*(^& flash function that kills my old home PC by chewing up CPU. :evil:
I can't even change the Quality setting to low so I can free up some CPU.
There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the drop boxes; those flash things look disjointed when compared with the other page content. They now don't remember your last selection, coming up with seeming random origins - or in some cases not even a list of fares, just an advertisement "Red e-Deals -lowest domestic flight offers ...".
For me, my home PC runs at 550Mhz with 376 Mb of RAM. It's ok for these developers with their 2+MHz PC's with a Gig+ of RAM to do these things, they generally don't experience these issues. (FWIW I am a developer and do use these things - but am aware that most don't have these more powerful tools).
I use FireFox and to date had resolved to not use Adblock to remove the Flash panes on the QF website, even though they were affecting performance. However, these are the last straw - what were previously quite useful part of the www.qantas.com front page are no more! If Qantas had permitted the use of "right-Click" ->Quality -> Low with their .swf's it would have been ok.
The top menu changed on late Sat afternoon. Now have something called "business solutions". Utter cr@@@p. They used to have a link to the RTW fares, etc on the top line.
Another negative enhancement by QF
I realise why I haven't been striking these issues that everyone else is experiencing. I hardly visit the QF home page. I have the QFF address saved to my favourites and if I want to view airfares I just click on flights and then click on domestic or international and it also remembers my last choice.
