Show unread posts since last visit.

Hi Liz
What happens to the 'Show unread posts since last visit.' threads when they are deleted?
And why have they been deleted so often lately?
Thanks for your trouble finding the answers.

I may be confused. Are you saying they are being deleted without any action from you to do so?

If nobody replies to the thread after you last looked then it don't appear in your "show unread since last visit" list until someone does.

Most of the time there are 25 'Threads' per page.  And there may be two or more pages. 
But earlier today, the page was only about half full - maybe 15 'Threads'. 
Where do they go without any action from me?
Thanks for your replies.
[Right now they overflow the first page onto a second.

I see what you are saying... It happens to me as well... They don't get deleted they just don't make the list for some strange reason. I think our browsers are doing it.

Yeah.... after I asked about Firefox I realized it happens on my PC at work as well and I don't use Firefox on that PC.
At this point, I don't have an answer.

I don’t have that issue on my phone, which I use most of the time. But on the big computer it does that unless I click the “show all” button.

Rich, thanks for the reply.
Where might I find the 'Show All' button?
*This morning, the threads are overflowing onto a third page.  Hummm!

And just like that, over the course of the day the list has dropped from 3 pages to about 10. I promise I did not visit all those threads. It's weird.

There they go again:  It is 4:45 p.m., there are 11 threads showing, an the oldest one was last posted to at 2:50 p.m.
Where do they go?  And why are they going without me?   >:(

show unread posts since last visit!1   since last visit  - is the key.  You don't have to read them but if you revisit the site(or refresh) it is since the current visit!!!

Nope, Dennis; that is not how it works. 
Then on the other hand, I don't really know how it works????
