Whenever I access a link within a message or look at a profile, then close the link or profile window, then go back to the Forum list, my crosshairs are all bulletholes. This didn't used to happen. The only thing I've done is update my MSIE program. I've done the cookie thing and entered through the front door, but it's still the same. I used to be able to read the messages, play on all of the neat web pages people had links to, and be able to come back to crosshairs and pink folders. I hope I'm explaining my dilema satisfactorily. Can anybody help?

I've noticed the same thing on my Mac when using Internet Explorer. The thing that I do to avoid that is to choose the "open in new window" option when clicking links.

It sounds like the software/cookie/site is working as intended, though.

I do use "Open In New Window". When I close out the new window and use the back button to return to the forum list all of the crosshairs have turned to bulletholes and all of the folders in the forums have turned yellow. I have no idea which posts I haven't read then. Yeah, I can look at times and remember titles, but that's what the different color folders are for.
