I did not mean to imply that it's not important, just less important than other things we are currently working on (which have timed deadlines) because it would take quite a while to remedy - it's not something that can be easily fixed. We do however have every intention of fixing this. Also, If there is a topic with 10 pages of posts, you'll still be taken to the correct page. However, this problem can be entirely avoided in the mean time by not opening forum posts in new tabs - but this is obviously a temporary fix.
Since there is a temporary fix to this issue, it's not being placed higher than other things currently on our to do list (again which have timed deadlines). Since the forum pages now load faster you should simply be able to open forum posts in the same window/tab you are working in. If there is a reason you can not do this in the mean time, or if it is taking your more time to do - please explain. This is a genuine question, because I may be missing something which would make this more important at this time.
