The "view replies" button no longer takes you to the reply - whether you have read the reply or not.
You can view the list of posts that have been replied to - but then to read the reply you have to
go to that board where the post was made and look for all the thread posts following your post.


I'm sure the problem is on the subscriber end. It may be a TMF issue, but it is on the user's computer where the problem is happening.

Like others, when I'm at my desktop computer and go through the intended routine to read a reply, I get a message saying there are no replies. However, when I do the same thing on my iPhone, it works just fine. For a while, I had the problem only on my office computer but not my home computer. Now both have the problem.

It may be a browser issue (I use Firefox at home and work, but Safari on my phone). It may be a cookie issue. It may be that TMF is using a mobile and desktop versions of their site (although I doubt that).

[brief pause]

I just fired up Internet Explorer (yes, I'm using an older version of windows that still has it). I logged in to TMF. I was able to read a reply there just fine - on the same computer where FireFox failed to read replies correctly. So it sounds like its either an issue with FireFox, or an issue with cookies. However, I have tried clearing all cookies associated with fool.com a while ago and that didn't help. Maybe I'll try again.

It would be good to know if someone is using the latest version of FireFox and NOT experiencing this issue.
