    When you view a thread that you've previously visited, you get a "go to first unread" option.

    When browsing via a mobile in portrait orientation, this button is not visible. Flip the phone over to landscape and it appears.

    It does it automatically in my end.

    If the thread was read already, but has new posts, I'll go directly to the first unread post.
    It bahaves the same with all modes, Phone or PC browser.

    Generally it does it automatically but there seem to be certain circumstances where it doesn't.

    I'll try and figure out what those circumstances are, but when it does happen, the bug is there

    OK...

    If you click on a thread in a forum, or follow a link from "Recent Content" or "Tutorials" on the front page, then you are taken directly to the latest post.

    If you click on a news item from the front page, you are taken to the first post. Viewing on a desktop, or in landscape mode on a phone, there is a "Go to first unread" link. In portrait mode, there is no such link.
