I have a vague recollection that the "old" interface had a sentence "You have 18 messages and 0 new messages" that included a link directly to my mailbox. I seem to have found my inbox under "User CP" though I have no idea what CP stands for. BTW, the menubar where I see "User CP" seems to have been shaved on the top; the magnifying glass for search is missing its top. And there's some blank space between the two menus (Forum/Verilog-AMS/Analysis/... and Home/Help/Search/...).

Ah, wait! I just found the message:
Good morning Geoffrey_Coram. You have 20 messages, and no new messages. Please follow the Forum guidelines. Apr 10th, 2019: 7:55am

I shrunk the window size and some text peeked out from below the blank band; on Firefox/Linux I see bottom halves of the letters in "Apr 10  , 2019, 7:55am"  On Chrome, I can't make out what it says at all. I've attached a screenshot from Firefox.

Thanks Geoffrey.
   I also was baffled by 'User CP', and only recently discovered it means 'User Control Panel'.

I also use Firefox and Chrome, and things look fine on my browsers. But the look of the browser is different. I am using an older Firefox and a recent Chrome. How about you?

I checked Firefox 52, 54, and 66 as well as Chrome 73, and all looks normal.

However, I also tried Internet Explorer 11, and it does look like your screen shots.

Frankly, life is too short to worry about Internet Explorer.

I'm using Firefox 45, which is the latest version available on RHEL6 (we're moving to RHEL7, but we have to make sure all our other software runs properly on RHEL7).
Also Chrome 49 (49.0.2623.110) on Linux.

Chrome 73 on Windows looks fine.
