"show first unread" button isn't working right

Is anyone else seeing this problem? I'm on the latest version of Firefox, but I've seen the same issue with Chrome.

That little button next to a thread title, that is supposed to take you to the first unread message in a thread isn't working right. It's taking me 3 to 10 posts BEFORE the first unread post. Not the end of the world, I know, but it gets annoying to always have to scroll down past read posts.

It usually works for me, but have noticed that a few specific threads always put me a few posts back. Pretty sure that’s a fairly new ‘feature’.

Using Chrome and, sometimes, it acts wonky.

Re: "show first unread" button isn't working right

I wonder if it has something to do with deleted posts?

It's acted a little weird from time to time since the board upgrade for me.

This is very possible. Also, do you have Infinite Scroll on and can you give me an example of a thread where this happened?

I don't have infinite scroll enabled. The Political Memes thread, when I clicked on show first unread, it took me to post 16508, when the first unread post for me was 16512

The Official Media Bias one sets me back 6 posts from where it should be.

Both of those threads appear to have deleted posts between your last-read post and first-unread. So that's probably what's causing that little hiccup. Please let me know when this happens again and I'll take a look and get our tech team on it.
