Forum Going Zombie Again

Well, I see the forum can't tell if I'm logged in or not again. The upper bar says "Welcome, pkscout" but the threads behave as if I'm not logged in at all. If I log out and back in it's fine again until next time I visit. I know this is one of the issues that was fixed once, but it seems to have crept back in at some point.

Oh, and I no longer get a cursor using Firefox 1.5.02 on OSX 10.4.6 when typing in any text fields (including the login boxes). Quite a joy when I'm trying to edit something but have no idea where my cursor is.

No, really. bbforums.

Why can't I tell if I've read a topic?

Besides teh missing cursor in Firefox,on the main forum page there is no indication of whether a topic is read or not. just a little yellow arroe for every one. Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
