This is a minor bug.
I edited the Main Administrator User Id from member 2 to member 46989. in Control Panel Primary-advanced settings
The field is so small that it is very difficult to edit or select the up/down arrows now.
Because it is set to display like 2 characters.

Thank you for reporting this.

It looks like an oversight, and is quite simple to fix. It will be fixed for the next UBBT release.

In the meanwhile, if you are constantly changing the primary administrator account often (???)...

FIND IN
/forums/templates/default/admin/primary.tmpl
(around line 84)
Code
<input type="number" min="2" name="MAIN_ADMIN_ID" size="3" value="{$config['MAIN_ADMIN_ID']}" id="main_admin">

REPLACE WITH
Code
<input type="number" min="2" name="MAIN_ADMIN_ID" size="10" value="{$config['MAIN_ADMIN_ID']}" id="main_admin">


EDIT: Firefox displays with a smaller text entry box than Chrome. This may have been where field size originally was determined from. Chrome actually reserves the font size spaces in the text entry box for display. Firefox does not respect that, and uses an arbitrary width for character.

Thanks for the fix.
The reason it was changed was for me to be able to view the original super admin while troubleshooting his sfs login detection issue from another post I made here.
I will probably put it back once the other issue is resolved

Oh and I was using firefox.
Thanks for the browser hint.
