Tom, 
I tried the page navigation on "What did you do today?" topic with 24 pages, and I had no trouble with any of the selections.

I also tested with a browser with Swedish settings and it also worked as expected :-).

I don't think I've ever used the "Next Topic" but decided to test it, and it has another unusual behavior, or at least unexpected, at least in MHO.

I take note of three topics in a row, my initial entry will be "hardware for emonitor 4.0" which has 26 replies on 2 pages. The next topic in the listing is :New bearing lubrication, three pages and 42 replies.

When I'm at page 1 of "hardware for emonitor 4.0" and click on Next Topic, it takes me to "Did you dare too" the topic before "hardware for emonitor 4.0." Click "Next topic" again, I get "Had an interesting job over the weekend."

So clicking "Next topic" takes you up the ladder, not down which was what I anticipated.  100% correct by the way, as it is the next topic in terms of time.

I am not seeing any issues with the Page numbers working correctly.  This could be browser specific.  I use Chrome almost exclusively on my PC.  On iOS I use Safari most often, and then Chrome.  I would try a different browser.  I hardly ever use the Microsoft browser (Edge?) because it gave me lots of problem compared to Chrome.

As for the Next Topic issue, I agree with John that "next" is technically the next "newer" topic, which seems logical. But, since topics are always listed by the newest response (post), it makes more sense for 'Next' to move you down the list.  I'll ask the developers about this behavior.

Microsoft and Google are working closely together to improve Edge and the result of the combined effort should be available in the short term. Supposedly it vastly improved over the previous Edge exclusively done by Microsoft.

I would not say working together

Afaik Microsoft is going to rebuild edge with chromium, the open source part of chrome (Google) many other browsers use this code, Samsung, Opera

Perhaps working closer than you might think...quoting Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore from yesterday

“Along with what’s visible in the browser itself, we’ve also begun to make contributions back to the Chromium open source project. These include areas like accessibility, touch, ARM64 and others. We’re working directly with the teams at Google and the broader Chromium community on this work and appreciate the collaborative and open discussions. We look forward to continued engagement with the community to progress Chromium in these areas and others.”

I suspect the truth is somewhere in between; Microsoft is going to spin it to their advantage, but it sure sounds like they may just be adopting Chromium as their development platform and stripping out all the Google-centric features, which is logical. It remains to be seen whether Chromium will be improved as a result. Microsoft is certainly not going away, and I expect their products will become less Microsoft-centric as they encourage developers to use their Azure cloud service, which seems to be the chief competitor to Amazon’s AWS.

I hope Chromium developers will be careful so it is not "enhanced" to a Edge kludge.
