Thank you! I never notice the yellow flags (I read all the new messages), but I was thinking it was an old vB habit.

Definitely an old vB habit here. I notice the flags because sometimes the new replies are scattered throughout the thread. If they actually worked they'd help me find new replies on other branches. But they don't because they disappear when I read the post I land on first.

My experience mirrors yours. It's been bugging me since we started using vB.

I guess the workaround would be to open the reply window in a new tab.

Might well be. I wonder if I could actually remember to do that.

FWIW, Version 4.1.5 has this problem too. I just tested it.

I realized that if you use the back arrow in the browser (at least in FF) you get back to the Yellow flags.
