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.
