question

Recommended Posts

I log in from work and from home, using firefox on both occasions. Yet when I log in from home, all the posts I read at work appear as new; this does not seem to happen when I log in at work. Is it a Mac/PC thing or just random?

I think it's because of the cookies. There are all the informations as to what post you've read etc. and since the cookies are stored localy on your PC your work PC doesn't know that you've already read them

well that seems reasonable, only I only have this problem at home. i.e. when I log in from work, it doesn't show me read posts as new. which is why I was wondering whether it's a mac/pc thing, as I have a mac at home and a pc at work

I find the same thing happens to me when I'm at work. I occasionally have to move from my main computer to another. When I get back to my main computer, I find I have to log out and log back into SF in order to clear the posts I've read at the second one. I use IE in both places.

It happens to me too, Rachel. I go from my Mac to my husband´s PC constantly and that´s why I prefer to post from my computer (and use hubby´s for my job)

peaches, i think you have the solution

I had to shut down my computer this morning, and when I came back from work, instead of just refreashing the forum page, i had to re-open it, and it seems that the posts i read at work did not appear as new

Hi,

I also think that it is due to cookies. due to this when you browse your post the browser did not download the entire page insted of downloading fresh page they search the cookies and display the old contents, therefore you feel like you haven't read the post before. Thank you.
