Threads are marked as unread when I close the browser

    When I start up my browser (Firefox) and go to my subscribed threads page, there are usually a few that are marked as unread. If I open those threads, and then go back to the subscribed threads page, they're marked as read (i.e. they are no longer bold). If I now close the browser, start it up again, and go back to the subscribed threads page, they're marked as unread again.

    It's a little bit annoying, but not really a big deal. I'm just wondering if other people have the same problem, and if there's an easy fix.

    I get this one too though not always. I'll have to pay attention from now on to see when exactly this happens. (I use different browsers depending on the kinds of websites I visit, but I sometimes forget to switch)

    I've been having this 'problem' for a long time. It doesn't really bother me though.
