This isnt critical because i only browse 1% of the time on my phone, but for some reason, forums are still marked as new after i click mark forum read from the Dolphin browser on my phone. Im 99% sure it is a browser issue because it is a new issue, but just wanted to give a heads up.

I'm fairly certain it would have to be something on the client side because that link's behaviour wouldn't change on our end for a different browser.

When you bring up the index after marking a forum read, do you find that the time displayed on that page is a minute or two behind (perhaps "cache time") instead of the "right now" time?

Does Dolphin have any cache settings you can adjust?

I will have to do more testing. At home, connected to my wi-fi, it worked as expected. When I was on 3G in a food court at the mall, it wasn't working.

I have more errands tomorrow, I'll look at the time-stamp when I mark it read.

Works fine on Dolphin on my phone, but I am still using Android 2.3 so it may be a different version if you are on 4.0+.

It must be a cache issue on my end.

I marked a few forums read and only Pro Wrestling was giving me trouble. The clock was correct, but it was still marked NEW. I went into the forum and threads were still marked NEW. I refreshed, and they were no longer new. I went to the main page, PW was still NEW. I refreshed and NEW went away.

Long story short, if I refresh the page, the NEW graphics go away.
