the threads I've read stay 'colour changed' once I'm back in Active Convos.

At the moment, they change colour initially when I click on them to read them, but revert to the 'unread' original colour again afterwards.

Tis most annoying!

Many Thanks

What are you clicking to go back to Active Convos?

If it's the back arrow, you'll just see what you saw before you opened the thread.

To see the colour change, you'd need to click back into Active Convos via the 'Active' link at the top of the page...

What browser are you using, Pesto?

RustyBear · 04/02/2010 21:26

You might want to cross that 'easy solution' off your list permanently Helen - when I use the back button on the browser, the thread I just clicked on stays purple...

Something you might try if you're on Firefox - click on Tools - Options and on the Content tab, then click colours. Make sure there are different colours selected for visited/unvisited links & look to see if there's a tick in the box next to 'Allow pages to choose their own colours, instead of my selection above' If there is, uncheck it & OK your way out.

There's probably an equivalent process on IE, but it's so long since I've used it, I'll have to go and check....

Just checked - Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

Click the General tab, and then click Accessibility.

Select the Ignore colours specified on webpages check boxes, and then click OK twice. (you can also Ignore font styles specified on webpages, and Ignore font sizes specified on webpages if you want)

Um, internet explorer I think.

That would be the second method then.

Rusty I am on Firefox with a Mac. Mine used to change but don't anymore. But when I go into Firfox tools whatever it was you said to click isn't there Can you kindly diagnose?? Please and Thank you.

RustyBear · 05/02/2010 14:13

I don't know a lot about Macs, but thispage may be useful - it says you find the menu by hovering the mouse over the word 'Firefox' in the top menu.

PestoSnowMonster · 08/02/2010 15:12

Hoorah! I seem to have fixed it now

thank you!
