moderated Browser losing visited #bug

I don't actually consider this a bug, more of a nuisance.  I noticed that recently my browser (Firefox) doesn't remember which topics I've visited on the overview page when an additional reply is made to any of them, https://groups.io/topics.  I think it's because the link changes as additional replies are received in topics.  As an example, for one topic:

yesterday: https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/86000001?p=%2C%2C%2C50%2C0%2C0%2C0%3A%3Arecentpostdate%2C%2C%2C50%2C2%2C0%2C0%2Cprevid%3D1633132849584885609%2Cnextid%3D1632655263565684928&previd=1633132849584885609&nextid=1632655263565684928&allview=1

today: https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/86000001?p=%2C%2C%2C50%2C0%2C0%2C0%3A%3Arecentpostdate%2C%2C%2C50%2C2%2C0%2C0%2Cprevid%3D1633161511845066009%2Cnextid%3D1632687150186165921&previd=1633161511845066009&nextid=1632687150186165921&allview=1

Since the site doesn't keep track of read messages (yet?), I was using it to keep track of where I was.  Now I need to try to remember what time I last checked.  I'm not sure why all the extra info is included now (possibly related to the app?), but if it can be safely removed, that should return things to the way they were.

Thanks,
Duane

I have been experiencing this as well. It is rather annoying...

I noticed this in only one group recently. The rest were fine. Could t figure it out.

I use Firefox too and noticed this. I also used it to keep track of what I'd read so far. I thought it may be something to do with a change in the Browser but if the links are changing then perhaps not.

Duane,

I think it's because the link changes as additional replies are
received in topics.
Isn't that a feature? That is, if there are replies you haven't seen in that topic wouldn't you want to know that?

Maybe the Messages list would be more to your liking. Caveat: I don't read online so I don't actually know if those links have lost the "visited" feature in some other way.

I could look at it that way if it were ONLY topics that have new replies, but everything on the page gets 'unvisited' when a new reply goes to any group/topic.  This is on the overview page, so there is no Messages view.  I seldom go to individual groups.
