I'm not sure what happened to the post you were about to make Frank. But, the same thing has happened to me...in various ways.
I've had the forum tell me I wasn't logged on after I hit the submit button. I've had the forum "go away" for a second after I hit the submit button. Etc. And that can be PLENTY painful...especially when I was making some of my ridiculously long Birth posts!
As for your New Posts question...I'm not sure I understand what it is you're trying to do, or wanting to do.
If you hit New Posts and are presented with three pages of posts, go through and read each, and then hit your BACK button to get back to the list...instead of hitting the New Post button again. Or, and this is how I do it, hold down the SHIFT key when you click on a new post. That causes the new post to be opened in a new window. When I'm done reading that new post, I simply close the new window and I'm right back where I left off in the list.
If this doesn't help, try to give me a better idea of what you need/want and I'll see if I can help!
