New forum, Use of getPreventDefault() is deprecated

Using Firefox 45.0.1, I'm seeing this warning -

Use of getPreventDefault() is deprecated.  Use defaultPrevented instead.

The forum code shouldn't be using obsoleted operations !

There's a good raft of deprecated content around here.  I flagged up some during the trials.  At the end of which the post remained unresponded to.

I reported this (and other errors) with a copy of the Firefox 45.0.1 Console output to Bob last Thursday.

 

PlusNet:  We really need a concise list of reported (and accepted!) errors without having to trawl through ALL the posts.

Re: New forum, Use of getPreventDefault() is deprecated

This thread is in risk of going off topic!

I've been asking for a list of residual defects since the first suggested release date, if for no other reason than when it goes live, user would know if the issue was known about or if its something new.

The prime beneficiaries of that would have been PlusNet in not being inundated with reports on issues already known about.  I feel quite frustrated that there's little one can do to help users here, given that there's no meaningful work around to many of these issues and the dialogue with the development team seems to have dried up.
