    I think that takes u to the first UNREAD post within the thread, and doesn't always work.

    is this your first entry into the thread? if so, clicking the thread title should take you to the actual first post. I think.

    When I click on a thread I have never been into before, even one that has been going on for days, it does not take me to the first post in the thread. Been meaning to ask why, or how it is supposed to work. Have always blamed my browser.

    Do you use the "Mark Forums Read' feature?

    Yes. When you subsequently click on the thread it will take you to what it thinks is the first unread post. Even if you haven't actually read the previous posts, you marked them read.

    I've always managed to find the first post of a thread at the top of the first page of the thread.
