OK, I believe it's the downward arrow to the left to the thread name, viz:

Capture.JPG

I use it all the time, but never realised that it had a popup label of Go to first new post, because I never hover over it long enough.

Now I'll have to wait for a new post in the thread in question, to check what happens.

In the meantime, a work around is:

1. Select Quick Links > Today's Posts.
2. Then you will see a list of threads, some bold, some not. The bold threads are the ones with posts which you have not read.
3. For any bold thread, if you select Last Page, it will take you not to the last page, but to the first unread post. (For non-bold threads, 'Last Page' does what it says on the can.)

Thanks.... but even there in Quick Links, this particular thread's links directs it to the same post half way through the thread.

I never noticed that arrow before.
