    Question Read/Unread
    Since upgrading to Safari 3 (not by choice btw), I have noticed an odd problem that only happens with M-F.

    If I close Safari and then reopen it, all the threads that were previously read are marked as unread again. Now I could blame this on Safari, but it ONLY does it in M-F. Other forums using the same forum software don't have this issues nor do other forums with different software.

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    The only way I can get it to not do this is to:

    A: Select "Mark Forums as read"

    B: Go to another web site and THEN close Safari.

    This also happens in FireFox 2 as well.

    I got that here with Tiger and Safari 2 also. All the threads I have read before I left are new again with the same last message as before I left.

    Ok, so it's not just me. Does it happen elsewhere (other forums) for you?

    I would occasionally get it with Safari 2 and Tiger, but now it is constant.

    It does not seem to happen on the other forum that I am a member of. They use the same software but not sure if it's the same version.

    When I'm here, I open each thread I'm interested in, in a new Tab. Sometimes there could be up to 8 Tabs open and when I'm finished and click on the "Get New" button it shows that there are no new threads to view.

    I have to go to Home then Get New before the new threads appear.

    And I thought it was a problem with Opera!

    Have just been living with it. Have not done any experimentation to see when it occurs nor how to alleviate it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    When it does it here it does it in Firefox, Camino, Opera, Safari and on both OSX and XP.
