The down arrow that lets you click it to jump straight to the most recent post in a thread that you have not yet read doesn't seem to be working for me today and yesterday. It has always worked in the past and is quite nice.

I wouldn't rule out anything on my end, but wanted to post this in case anyone else notices the same thing.

Hi Scott,

Are you referring to the blue up and down arrows on the right-hand side of the thread display? If so, they are working for me.

Best regards.

Frank

Nope, sorry I wasn't all that clear was I.

I meant the white arrow immediately to the left of the subject of a posting. It is a small arrow.

For instance, in this thread, I posted first. Now today I came in and the icon to the left of the subject was in red because there was new activity on the thread that I had not yet read.

In the past, I could click on the little white arrow between the icon and the subject and it would take me directly to your follow up to my original post, because that was the latest entry that I had not yet read. But instead today it takes me straight to the top of the thread, leaving me to scroll down and find whatever was new.

I've never used it before. In fact, I wasn't even aware of it until now Embarassed

Nevertheless, it seems to work as advertised (tested with Firefox 1.0.6). Other browsers may behave differently.

It is a nice feature, I use it all the time. Well, used to until this week...I wonder what caused the change. I'm using internet explorer, but it has worked in the past. I wonder if something changed on my system...but don't know what it could be...

Any other IE users (I know, it is almost embarassing to admit) mind trying the feature to confirm if it works for you and is a problem with my pc?

It appears to be working for me. However, if my memory is correct, it used to put the 'next' post at the top of the browser page, now it appears to put it at the middle of the browser page. Maybe that's why you feel you are not going to the 'next' post correctly.

On FF1.5 it works too. The first unread post is displayed at the top of the screen.
