Thanks to whoever put these. Makes it so much easier to find which topics have new posts.

They appeared to me yesterday for the first time. To be frank, these boards are not exactly the most user friendly boards I've seen :( phpbb and simple machine boards are so much easier.

And Firefox doesn't like these boards here at all.

I used both, IE and Firefox. I had no orange boxes on either browsers until yesterday, and they appeared in both browsers.

The problem with Firefox is that it doesn't like the cookie set by these boards, and I can't stay logged on. Minor annoyance.

IE is still a major security hole, as proven by the guy sitting next to me at work, who browse without being careful and gets about 2000 spywares a day and has to reinstall Windows every 2 months because the computer is beyond repair due to spywares.

Weird... I stay logged on during one session, but if I close Firefox and then come back later, I have to relog.

I've never had that problem. Maybe it's your security setting or something?

Check your cookie setting too, sometime it gets deleted too often.

That used to happen to me, IE is like killing your computer!!!  :angry:
On the other hand is mozilla firefox, a beatiful internet browser  :rolleyes:
