Did something just toggle on the board

My screen just changed to show "you have X number of posts in this thread" on the left column.

Anyone else...?

I saw that before once a few weeks ago, no idea what triggered it...

When I went back to the main BWOT screen after posting this thread, it was gone and back to just envelops.

Just did it again. It is the TEXT behind the envelop buttons. Makes me think that Firefox is not refreshing quickly enough when the page refreshes and just gives up on those buttons that do not refresh.

It is random down the line as there is no consistency

It shows up if you hover your mouse over the envelope. Ever try double-clicking the envelope?

yep. I knew it was there but this was simply text in place of some of the buttons. I think it is a refresh issue.

It has nothing to do with this thread but with all this talk of buttons, this seemed like a good time to renew my request for my "Ignore" button.
