"Show unread" not working in Firefox 6
« on: August 22, 2011, 05:37:19 AM »
Since I installed Firefox 6 (I previously used FF5), the 'show unread posts since your last visit' facility on this forum no longer works for me. It's OK in IE9. I've tried clearing the cookies for this site, and I don't see this problem on any other forum. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am using FF 6 and it works fine.  I didn't do anything different.

Hi
I also am using FF6 just updated. I find initially it seemed to work okay but  then when I logged out closed the browser and came back and tried it, it had cleared all previous posts that showed as if I had actually read them. Mmmmmm!
I think there must be something in FF6 that isn't responding the same as it used to.

Mine doesn't work either.  I am on a Mac using FF6.  I wonder if the people having issues are using
Macs?

The simple answer is not to click the LOG OUT BUTTON of the forum, but simply close the tab
also check in firefox option's that is does NOT clear cookies on log out
you should then have no further problems

Hi
My FF6 now seems to be working fine. There were no changes made that I am aware of.

As I said in my first post, it was working fine in IE9. However, today it's not working again in either FF6 or IE9, so I have no idea what's going on. The problem seems to occur randomly, not be browser-related, and only happen on this forum of the half-dozen or so that I'm a member of. Oh well.

In Firefox, try going to Tools, Options, Privacy.  Then be sure it says Firefox will "Remember History".
Also, I would check "allow tracking".
