That is really weird.
I use Google Chrome.
The preview is gone. I found a setting and killed it.
Thank you Angie!
So here's an odd one. This is on desktop Firefox, though it's not browser dependent. This behavior is in the XF software.
When I click on New Posts at the top, I get a list of all the threads that contain unread messages. Perfect. If I click on the little blue dot to the left of the thread title, I consistently get sent to the first unread message. Also good.
If I click on the thread title, about 50% of the time, I get sent to the first unread message, and the other half of the time I go to the first message in the thread. You can quickly see this by looking at the URL preview when you hover over the different links -- the ones that will send you to the first-unread have a /unread at the end of their URL. I've been aware of the behavior for a few days, but just noticed the /unread bit today.
The question is, why the variability? I like being sent to the first unread message (that's why I look at the New Posts view in the first place). I dislike having to hit the little blue dot; the thread title is a much bigger and easier-to-hit target. Is there a way to have that thread title be consistent in including the /unread link? Or, if everyone else likes having it go to the first message, have it consistently do that?
I've noticed similar problems but for me in Explorer with
Google it only happens once in awhile. Most of the time I go directly to the first unread. Not enough of a problem for me to say anything.
Not sure why the Thread Title acts in that manner. I'll do more research on it.
Why do I get a "join our forum" popup when I try to log in? Obviously I'm a member and a fiscal contributor. Is there a way to avoid the popup?
Hope this helps with the popup I see.
Yes that is for people looking when logged out. If you don't want to see it, just log in and use the remember me box and you'll stay logged in and never see it.
Speaking of, "remember me," I have to log in every day and I click, "remember me," every day ??
Also, I have to click, "go to first unread post," several times a day but not always. About 70% of the time when I open a thread I am taken to the first post of that thread no matter how old it is, again ??
Thank you Angie
The same with me.
I always mark stay logged in but it doesn't work.
Foxfire 63.0.1 64 bit it that matters
Have you tried clearing the cookies? @Randy? Are you visiting via a computer and not the app? If in the app, please uninstall and reinstall. That usually clears up this issue.
Hate to say it, but what is XF Software?
@Michael Stinson I'm sorry I used the abbreviation. XenForo software. It's just a very popular software for forums to run on these days. Has good features that members have wished for.
I wanted to drag this back to the top.
Admin: The "stay logged in" feature doesn't work for me. Using Foxfire version 63.0.1. I cleared the cookies in the hope that would help... nope.
Any new suggestions?
Nothing has changed for me either, still the same problems as stated in post #191
@ndlakesdreamer Being on Firefox could have a good deal to do with it. Do you have the ability to try it on Chrome? I am testing on Firefox to see if it will log me out between times, and so far it is keeping me logged in.
I'm on 63.0.1 as well. No issues with this version or any previous one that I can recall.
