as far as i know there is no way for the web side to learn what i have
read on my Thunderbird, and what not. (since that info is stored
somewhere that Thunderbird can’t access)
and, certainly my Thunderbird couldn’t know what i read in Firefox on
the web side
it is like i have a google mail account…it is set up to
automatically forward all gmail to my pop mail account (at my isp)
where i fetch it with thunderbird…and, read it…but, when i go to
google’s webmail place it has not been read THERE, so it is unread there…
and, if i’m on vacation and go into a web cafe and read my google mail
online, when i get home my Thunderbird will have the SAME mail, marked

Nope, it’s a gateway issue - on the list of things to be addressed.

Nope, and as the NNTP access is unauthenticated (out of necessity from
the configuration settings), tracking the high message counter is handled
in two different places.
Changing that would require code customization, which would require
resources that are not presently available to customize that code.
Indeed there has. My forum access has been exclusively by browser, so I have enjoyed reading about how and why NNTP is preferred by those who continue with it, despite the extended communication facilities provided by browser access.
It’s useful to know that a viable alternative to browser access exists, since the number of “Winking, Blinking, & Nod” animated avatars appears to be on the increase. IMO the novelty wears off in a few seconds or less, becoming a visual irritant and distraction to the text. I try not to imagine what this forum will look like if everyone takes that ego trip. Thanks to NNTP I won’t have to think about it. :X
