I was able to change the number of topics on a page by going to My settings -> Preferences -> Linear Layout. However, it only takes effect if I'm logged in. When I'm logged out I get the default again.
The the avatar shape was changed from square to round, but the avatars weren't redrawn to fit; they are just masked. It looks like the mask is left justified (instead of center justified) on many of them, so the avatars are mostly unrecognizable.

After redesign I stop receiving Weekly Digest Subscription emails.
Also the Forums are really not convenient, for example you want to use AXI Infrastructure Forum, you need to search for it, expand many folder.
Not so funny~

First...a lot changes have been deployed so please clear your cache. Thanks.
Community Forums Responsive Upgrade Feedback Update:
1. Too much white space
Adjusted size to 90% width at the largest break-point
2. Not sure where to find Notifications, My Profile, Messages etc.
3. Font size too large
This is the recommended font size for optimal viewing across multiple devices
4. Want Recent Posts/Community Activity back at top of page
Fix: Moved to top of page
5. # of Posts visible on screen is not enough. Should be 20 or more
Fix: Changed to 30
6. <insert code> box... box is far too narrow now to read the code even with slider at the bottom with long piece of code. Example: ttps://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Synthesis/How-to-do-rational-division-of-a-clock-to-generate-a-clock/m-p/844672
Fix: Adjusted size to 90% width at the largest break-point

MUCH BETTER! Code boxes look great now. and for the font size.. this is easy enough to adjust on the fly by holding down the control key and using the mouse scroll wheel.. It's pretty easy to scale the font on the fly until it looks right. and it's also easy to see the latest postings with a pretty decent number of posts visible on screen. 30 seems like a pretty good number. But I do have a suggestion for another category of posts... "The Unanswered Posts". When I'm looking for an question to answer, that would help a lot to have a link to click that brings up a list of posts... that for one reason or another... nobody has answered. We could also just as well create a category, "Unsolved Posts", but this category would probably have tens of thousands of entries.
It's definitely llooking better now.. Thank you!

This layout is much better, now using the full width when reading posts.
There still is too much wasted space on the forum summary pages; each topic could be reduced to a single line each by removing the user icon and placing all the text onto the same line :

Other loss of functionality:
When reading posts, the old interface displayed the following information:
Both of these useful fields are missing from the new forum browser.

we are trying to patch the new layout / format.
Where as I would have thought we wanted to use the old forums that worked as the basis, what is better in the new forums than on the old,
Could we know what was seen as a problem with the old layout, and how the new was designed to improve on that ,
then we could as my old English master used to say , "contrast and compare"

Thank you for your feedback. I am not able to reproduce the jumping of the screen issue. Can you please provide a screenshot?
If you are not using one of these browsers (or versions), your experience may be decreased.

One bit of wasted space, at least for me is the New Solutions spot at the bottom of the Community Forums > Forums page. I don't look for solutions to problems I don't know that I have. I do look for new posts to see if there is a problem I can help with. There should be a way to customize this page to show Newest Posts, not New Solutions.

Black-on-bright-white motif is not easy on the eyes.
Is it possible to implement a variety of display motifs, including a light on dark option? Possibilities include:
My tired, old eyes give you many tanks.
