I have tried with very occasional success using IE and Chrome in Win 7 to open 'New Posts' on a 'clean computer' but the same old message every time .... until this time. (Like a naughty child !)

Is there any success in solving this mystery, please.?? Or any final answer?

Thanks guys

Hello Brian, sorry to hear of your woes. I am currently running Firefox v55.0.3 (32-bit) and I am still using the method I mentioned above. At the end of the session I shut down Firefox completely and the next time that I start it up I am able to view New Posts since my last log on.
Some work is going on behind the scenes to bring the site up to date with https criteria for logging in.

Thank you Jim, in the meantime I am busy trying to recover user names and passwords to programmes and sites which were lost, including email addresses. Slow painful business, but I basically have a new computer , so worth it.
