    Keep loosing new posts???


    I keep loosing the new posts, both at work (Mozilla 1.6, Windows 2000) and at home (Mozilla 1.6 Linux). What's up with that? I'll be here, see like ten new posts, read one, and they'll all be marked as read.

    hmmmm...

    Anyone else have that problem? Is there a way to fix it, or no?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Maybe it's a cookie problem? (are you allowing cookies from lfo?)

    I'm using cookies for sure, based on privacy settings. It doesn't happen all the time, but it's happened a few, like three to be exact.

    If you close your browser window, then re-open it and goto linuxforums.org again, it will have marked previous posts as read.

    If you browse the site, for 5 minutes or so, and all the posts become marked as read, there may be a problem with your cookies. do the following in attempt to resolve:

    1) "Log out" from linuxforums (from both machines).
    2) Delete all cookies for www.linuxforums.org and linuxforums.org
    3) Close browser window
    4) Open browser window, go back to linuxforums.org, problem should be fixed for future browsing.

    As scientica said, you must also be accepting cookies for www.linuxforums.org

    It didn't work. Or rather, it seemed to work on my Linux box at home, but not my Windows box at work.

    hmmm... I guess it's just something I'll have to live with.

    Thanks,
