New / Unread Topic counts out of sync
Bug: Somtimes the unread/new post counts get stuck.
On topic list:
Inside a topic, at bottom:
Can't specify a "how" or "why", it just seems to happen sporadically, and the wrong counter doesn't go away until a full refresh.
Edit: Dismiss Unread button does not appear when Unread count is stuck:
Though, it is seemingly easy to reproduce by having unread items, opening them in a new tab, reading everything, then closing the new tab and resuming browsing from the main tab. But that is not the apparently only set of steps for it to happen, as I wasn't doing that when the New count got stuck.

Not a requirement though, I get the same without opening new tabs.
It's just the easiest way to replicate the issue, and the only way I know to reliably get it to happen. If I knew the steps for how we are getting this issue to happen otherwise, I'd post em.
I would believe, though, that the fix for both is the same, so a sure-fire way to replicate it makes for easier testing/fixing.
Reading comprehension fail. Though I understood what you wanted to say I thought it might look ambiguous. After re-reading the original post it's clear enough.
Yay for spam, I guess.
@sam if the repro is to open the items in new tab, shouldn't the new counter refresh when the original topic list tab resumes having focus?

It is not correlated to working with tabs. I was reading in one tab and got it again. Chrome on w7.
I also got it last night on chrome for android.
I experience this bug frequently, without tabbing away.
