    I am reporting a bug in the forums software.

    What I did to experience this problem:
    1. Click the 'New Posts' link (top left, in main menu banner) in the MR forums
    2. Click the 'Mark Forums Read' link (on the right, next to 'Recent Posts')

    The confirmation image/banner never disappears and the forums are never marked read.

    I am experiencing this issue on both my Mac mini (late 2014) and iPhone 8, both completely updated and using Safari. I have cleared all history on both devices and the issue persists.

    I can confirm this as well. Mark forums read isn't working.

    After more investigation, it appears that the buttons on the confirmation image/banner turn gray after pressing one, and they stay gray for a minute or so and then turn blue on their own. I don't remember seeing both buttons turn gray in the past. Perhaps some work was recently done on the confirmation dialog and this has resulted in preventing forms posts from being marked as read? I'm hoping this information can be of assistance in troubleshooting the issue.

    Same here... neither of the mark read buttons is working for me. I'll pass it along to the admins.
