Discovering the "New Posts" link a few weeks ago made all the difference in my online experience at FW. No more scanning through the forum list and examining the "most recent date & time" on each one!
BUT ... just in the past 2 or 3 days I've been seeing some odd behavior. I usually:
1) Go directly to the "New Posts" pageStep 4 brings me back to the "New Posts" list, and (as expected) all of the threads are still in a bolded font as though I had never visited them. When I start losing my place, I either press F5 (to reload the page in IE) or click the "New Posts" link again.
2) Start at the bottom
3) Click on the "down arrow" next to each thread in the list
4) Click the browser's "Back" button after catching up on a given thread
In the past, this has always removed the "bold" attribute from the threads I have visited, unless someone has added a new post in the meantime. But lately, more and more of the threads in the "New Posts" list stay bold no matter what I do. (Revisit the thread, press F5, click "New Posts", etc.)
Does this sound like an FW software problem, or a browser problem? (Does it happen at all to users of FireFox or other browsers?)
