Since I've started using Firefox, at the few forums I visit (phpBB) the direct links to 'last post' don't work. In any other browser (mobile, laptop, computer) if I click the button to go to the first unread message, I go to the first unread message. In Firefox, it depends.
- Most of the times it will just go to the top of the last page of the thread, even if there are 2, 5 or 25 messages that I've read earlier. It will not go to the actual first new post.
- If there's a new page of the thread (let's say page 4/4) with posts, but there are unread posts at page 3/4, Firefox will go to the top of page 4/4 anyway. And I'll have to manually find out if I missed new messages at page 3/4.
This week I bought a new laptop (Windows 11) and I logged in at Firefox with the same profile, hoping that the new device would erase this 'unconvenience'. However, it didn't. This makes me believe that there's an option I clicked once on my older device (Windows 10), but can't find back. Can you wizards maybe tell me where to find this box I need to (un)tick to stop Firefox from doing this? I tried using Firefox on my Android mobile once, but it had exactly the same thing, so I stopped using that and swtiched to another browser.
Something strange at these same forums is that if I click "Show threads with new posts", it will give me a list. If I visit one of the threads, go back to the list and hit refresh, sometimes not only the thread I just read will go to 'read', but randomly one or more other threads will also show up as 'read', while I never touched it. Bug?
Thanks in advance!
