    I also use new posts, and in a 24 hour period typically get about 20 to 30 of them

    I check the forum several times a day, I just don't post nearly as much as I used to. But part of my frustration of not posting is not keeping up with the threads since half of them never show as new for me. I'll figure it out eventually.

It seems that the system updates the status of that on some fixed interval and if you log in right before it updates and are logged in when the update happens, all posts are changed to not new. But if you log in right after the update, you can be logged in for some time without it happening.

    Could it be that one of your devices - smartphone, tablet etc. - is logging in just because you have launched a browser even though you don't view the GSB tab?. I know that I am sometimes surprised by the tabs that are opened in the Dolphin browser on my phone when I start it. Android apps don't open and close like windows apps. On my phone, and this may apply to all android phones, some apps like Dolphin have an explicit "Exit" option but most don't. I have a shortcut on my home screen to my work email. If I don't close the browser but just go back to the home screen and then launch the shortcut again, it opens a new tab to the same url so I end up with two tabs with the same page. So I assume that the browser is still running in the background, logged into my mail even though I'm not looking at it.
    Wally, those are some good possibilities. I do have a tablet and smart phone, but I don't usually log into GSB through them, unless my laptop is just not accessible. I do however log into a VPN client for work through my laptop which of course momentarily resets all my network activity when it logs in. And I do keep several tabs open on FF through out the day for forums, one of them being GSB. It might be that when I log into VPN, its resetting all the cookies for the threads up to that point as read, so that when I check a little bit later, there's only a couple new since that point. The only weird thing, is that GSB is the only forum of many that I check that I have this issue with. The rest of them don't care if I log in/out of my VPN, keep the tabs open all day, etc.

    Maybe I'll try some experiments like closing the GSB tab when I'm done checking for the day and then open it back up to check for the next day and see if I have more than just a couple un-read threads.

    And just for reference, this thread didn't show in my new posts. I had to go find it.

    +1 I switched to Chrome a few months ago. It's soooo much faster and better than IE.
