I recently noticed (last week or two) that everything on the forum is 'resetting' when I visit the next day. It shows all of my favorites as having a new post. But what's weird is that when I go to one of the sections (i.e. Totally O/T), all the books on the left hand side are closed. So I don't know what I need to look at to fix this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Go up to Tools and scroll down to Internet options,Under History,it should read clear historey every 30 to 90 days (user defined).I have no idea what your talking about when you say "all the books on the left hand side are closed".Are you saying you cant open any forum threads?

He's referring to the favorites. They have a little book icon that is either open for favorites that have new posts, or closed for favorites that do not.

OS? Browser and version?

It has been fine. I don't know exactly when it started doing this, but it was recently. I just checked my internet options, and the history is set to 30 days. I forgot to mention what browser I'm using. It's an older version of firefox. OS is windows xp pro.

Yes, the books I'm referring to are the small book icons on the far left of the threads. I think you have to be logged in to see them. They're now always closed. However, when I open the favorites tab and recent posts, all of the books are open, like they're have been new posts since I last checked. There isn't new posts, though.
This is weird.

I don't have it bookmarked. It stays in the pull down address bar.

I am going to guess it has to do with your cookies. Try erasing the forums cookie and re-enabling the stay logged in feature.

I have never had it set up to stay logged in. Just for kicks I deleted all cookies, but that didn't change anything.
