The past few days or so, my computer doesn't seem to be registering when I've read a post/thread, not greying it out. The only way I can grey out all threads is by clicking the "Mark all forums as read" link. I'm using Firefox 11.0 and haven't changed my cookies settings at all. Anyone know why this would be happening?

Not sure, but I've observed something similar for a long time. On the "home page" for each forum, threads show up as read after I've read them, navigated to another page, and then navigated back, but the "IPB" icons on the main Mobius page still indicate that there are unread threads/posts within a forum. Using the "Mark all" link clears that up.

It's likely some sort of cookie issue, but like you I'm at a loss to explain it. I'm using Chrome more often than not these days, but do alternate back and forth between it and Firefox 10.0.2.

Thanks, Dave. As of this morning it seems to have fixed itself just as mysteriously, so who knows. I'll chalk it up to one of those inexplicable hiccups machines often get.
