First Unread Post Issues

When I click on a thread, it is supposed to take me to the first unread post in that thread. It works probably 50-75% of the time by rough estimate (no I don't have data I can share). So why doesn't it work the rest of the time? It will take me to the top of the correct page, but then I have to scroll down manually to find my place.

Since this is in feedback, I'll add some....please fix. :)

    that happens when posts get merged into a post, if posts get merged it takes you to the last page you where on as it cannot take you to the last post you read due to the merge
    very annoying scrolling past the same posts constantly

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I'm a mod on another forum where we merge posts from time to time and I've never seen this be a problem. There should be a way to fix it.

    I have had this happen to me on threads that were definitely not merged. Some threads it just takes me right back to the first post no matter what.
