Since the thread about the Unread Mail Problem ( this one here) has been locked, I'm starting this new thread to say that I'm having that problem. I'm running the most recent stable release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows Vista, and the issue is also occurring on Giant Bomb and Comic Vine, if that helps. Sometimes I can fix it by marking a post I've read  as unread, but currently that appears to not be the case.

Yeah I am still dealing with this problem as well.

With the new update out (the Quest System one) I still have the problem every now and then.  Most of the time it's correct.

If there is a number still and you already read them all, you reply to the last message and it reverts back to zero. That's how it works for me.

Wow, what a weird solution. Did you stumble across that randomly? Also, love the new Nono avatar.
 
But yeah, I can't make heads or tails of the mail system most times. I've just learned to love the bomb, though I rarely zero out any mail account (my gmail has 3601 unread mail currently)

@John_Martone: Yup I randomly came across it when I had two PMs still in my inbox. I just replied to one and it reverted to zero. It's just odd. 
 
My OCD-like behavior wants my inbox clean all the time so I try to limit myself to ten. So when I see that fake unread messages, it bugs me.
