@devildog Have you checked out the "mobile" section above here by chance? (I'm not trying to nag you. Sorry if it's annoying. I have a running list of people have "this" issue or "that" issue so I'm just trying to sort everyone out)

No, honestly not at all, @devildog There are a few people just left having problems. Mac users seemed to have a hard time, Safari, and Apple people. Just getting them sorted little by little. I'm glad you are good now. *marks you off the list*
