I am sure the redesign is because of the recent hack problems they had.

1. Site defaults to German language every time I open it, and I'm forced to choose English.
2. Very few auctions are visible at one time, forcing me to click "show more" over and over and over again.
3. When viewing auction lots, I cannot find a category sort option. So, in order to find any Roman Republican coins in a sale, I must scroll through all the Greek and Greek Imperial. If the category feature still exists for mobile users, it's annoyingly well-hidden.
4. Functions of the universal symbol buttons are not always clear.
What bugs you about the new Sixbid?
Everything you've stated and more. I'm a big supporter of change and don't mind the disruption when websites release redesigns/etc. but every facet of the new Sixbid interface is awful and a major regression in terms of usability and performance.

I have just about quit using Sixbid. It is much easier using NumisBids or biddr. My problems have all been the same as those listed above. It's also a real pain when I click on a coin I am tracking to check its status and then want to go back to the previous page. I am always sent back to page one where I have to scroll around to find where I left off on my original search. I can do without the hassle of using Sixbid.
In fairness to SixBid, I'll point-out that there IS a category selection option in the "desktop" version of the website. The trouble is, I use Sixbid on my Android phone 95% of the time. Category selection is really a critically-missing component of the mobile platform.
My Samsung can switch to desktop from the browser settings, after which it works much better.
Thanks for that tip, David! I had no idea I could switch to desktop view. Indeed, that resolves several of my issues.
