    I don't think it's a bug. That icon with the open envelope (I think that's what you're talking about) isn't about whether the post has replies - the open envelope indicates a new message. A closed envelope indicates an old message. That's my interpretation based on the names of the icons being used.

    That was my impression as well. They are "new" until you log out (or get logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity).

    By the way, if you are looking for replies to your threads, the https://www.physicsforums.com/usercp.php [Broken] is easier.
