Title: Problem with threads getting marked read
Post by xxkid123 on Jun 5th, 2012 at 4:59am
Hey, I've been having this problem lately with threads I haven't viewed getting marked read. Usually ones next to one I just read. It's a little annoying since sometimes I can't remember which threads I've read or not.

I'm not sure if it's the forum (unlikely), or my browser. I'm running latest Google Chrome and Windows Vista. I think it might be because an extension of mine loads the next page so that I have an easier time navigating, however I've had this for a while before the issue came up.

Any trouble shooting help would be great.

I used to have that problem in firefox, but not in a long time.

Lol CA,I'll agree that Vista is bad, but don't you dare say any thing about Google Chrome ;) And I'm not a big fan of using FireFox, just doesn't work as smoothly as chrome in my opinion.

Either way I'll download it when I get home and see if there's a difference.

lol it's google - it's got a nasty agenda.

I believe it's what the native browser is on my android tablet.

I've yet to find a good browser that does everything (dolphin is the best compromise) - but so far every single alternative is faster than the native browser.

Native browser is horrible- the ICS one is marginally usable. I like dolphin because everything loads right- with other browsers certain pages, type of files, etc don't load correctly. Dolphin is as close to a real desktop browser as I've ever gotten. Opera Mobile has a nice UI, and Maxthon isn't too bad.

^Very off topic...should I move my own post to the OT forum?

That's wrong. Just to say, because I don't have any tablet or advanced phone and I don't have read threads issues :D

to be honest I don't think I've ever noticed or used the coloured indicators
I just look at the threads I'm interested in :-)
