I still get the notification in my email that I HAVE a PM, but when I log into BW it doesn't always show that I have one. It does ask me about opening a new window, but if I get two messages I don't always know I've read them both b/c there's no number after "My Messages," if that makes sense.

Just a heads-up - noticed this only recently, after the latest update, and it may also be that my browser is an older Firefox I'm stuck with till we get a new computer, which won't happen any time soon without a lottery win. :P

Is there a reason you cannot update your Firefox browser?

It sounds like a cookie/cache issue with your browser so, my first advice would be to clear your cookies/cache to see if that resolves the issue.  If not then we shall need to investigate further :)

OK, now it's making a liar out of me and showing the number of messages. ::)

I can't update the browser till I get a new OS for my Mac, but my Mac will only take one more update - maybe - and that's OS X Tiger, which I thought I'd bypass by just getting Leopard when it came out, but turns out the old eMac is too slow for it (only 700MHz and needs 800 :(), so now I have this lovely Leopard DVD and can't install it AND I can't update anything else (Want a Leopard DV cheap? ::), AND I can't find Tiger to download to update my Panther......

Did you follow all that?  ;D ;D ;D

Dave calls them Macintrash.  Partially to drive his in-laws nuts I think.  (BIL is a mac doc).

I've seen the amount of time my dad spends with his pooter in computer hospital. No thanks - I'll muddle along with old faithful here till we get a nice shiny new MACINTOSH and the kids can have this one! :P
