Is there any way to indicate if I have read a post so I know when to stop scrolling?

I thought that if I opened a post it would change color ... it does but tomorrow it is back to the original color.

I tried a daily sticky note but my dog likes to eat them!! [just kidding ... don't have a dog]

Are you deleting ALL your cookies when you close down at night ?

LH, not intentionally. I rarely shut down at night.

Ummm, read posts should be black, unread, blue.
Try clearing out your browsers cookies and emptying the cache. (with browser closed)
Reboot after.

Your browser could also be set to delete cookies when it is closed. Check that.

is it not just because people are adding new comments to the posts?

Also, If you are using Ccleaner to clean on startup or manually, go into Ccleaner's Options > Cookies > Move HTG cookies into "Cookies To Keep".

Understand that the posts, as I read them, are blue and turn black when read as LH noted. But tomorrow they are all blue again and I would like to only have to scroll down to where I finished today. This is said to be sure y'all know what I am looking for.

I rarely delete any cookies.

My "first string" browser is PaleMoon", but I have FF and IE9 for occasional use.

I will play with the cookie suggestions. I do have CCleaner (via ReVo) loaded but it is not set for auto run.

Stay tuned and thanks.

I use Pale Moon too, and don't have the problem. I don't clear cookies, only the cache.

bobro is right.

When you initially click on a thread (which is blue) it'll then turn black, however, once someone adds a new comment you will then see it blue.

But if no one comments after you have read that thread you will continue seeing it black.

Well at least that's with me and apparently with bobro too.

Yes, I didn't completely understand bobro's post.

Also I scrolled further down and did find some that are still black, and no doubt no further posts have been added.

Will mark this solved by creating a running sticky note.

Thanks all.

Not sure it has a lot to do with cookies, since when I change from computer to computer to netbook to tablet they always remain correct.
