"Unread" filter issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I always browse the forums with the Unread filter turned on.  Occasionally, I make the mistake of clicking on a thread instead of opening it up in another tab.  I decide I want to do something with the thread, realize my mistake and click the Back button so I can open it in another tab.  Thread is gone from the list.

    I browse to a forum.  Click the Unread button but start previewing threads right away because it takes far too long for the page view to be updated.  "Error while processing the request", filter isn't applied.

    I keep a tab opened on "My Threads" with the Unread filter turned on so I can get alerted when somebody posts to a thread I worked on.  The email alerts and "My Alerts" page don't work for me.  Admittedly, it sounds like I'm doing something wrong but the automatic updates (Pause/Resume) seem to be off at random times.

    Silly problems, they all have workarounds.  It just makes being an answerer and a moderator a pain.  I hope you have an idea, I don't.
