Is it possible for the "View First Unread" button to go back to the first unread post on a previous page when appropriate?

The button is definitely convenient when the first unread post is on the same page, but is is misleading when the first unread post is on a previous page.

Thank you.

The idea is to take you to the last post you read so you can continue from that spot. To take you anywhere else would be confusing.

That is what I want - to take me to the post after the last post I read. The way it is now, if a new page started since I last read a post, it takes me to the first post of the new page, not the first unread post on the previous page.

Perhaps it's a setting you should check. Mine takes me to the last read post, not the most recent page, just as it should. Perhaps it's under the Settings it gives an option? Not sure. But yeah, mine works normally. :)
