Hi Mike,

Thanks for the responce.. yes that does appear to be the issue that i was referring to. Normally what will occur is that i will be reading a thread that has been obtained by the "getnew" New Posts search, and then when i hit the back button to return to the search listings an error message is displayed and the remainder of the search listings are lost.

Is it possible to change this time-out cookie from say a 15 to a 60 minute time-out? That would certainly be helpful for me, and i suspect other forum members as well.
