1.How do I find my posts? Even searching on my User ID doesn't return them, and the "History" feature is inadequate.

2. The "back" button doesn't work right in Firefox, at least. It returns to the first page, instead of the page I was just on. For example, if I'm stepping through the message list page by page, I have to open threads in a new tab, because if I simply click on one and then press the back button, I'm dumped onto the starting page. which is really a problem if I was on (say) page 20. because there's no "Goto Page" option. I'd have to click "Next" 20 times to get back to where I was.

Hi

I'd suggest you re-post this question in the error log, where it's more likely to be picked up.

I notice that your "Posts" field only indicates you've made one post, which is going to make finding several posts quite hard...

There is a "My Posts" link at the top of the page.

Your account is showing up with only 1 post (which is likely the current topic).

If you posted something that was identified as SPAM, then it might have been deleted.  For example, a "newbie" that posts an offsite link without obvious bibliographic reference material/content to the link could have the post deleted.  The same might be true for a clearly off-topic posting that appears to direct readers to an offsite resource.

My "My Posts" page seems to be somewhat truncated.

You can also specify a site search criterion in Google Searches...  for example putting in:

myname site:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/   will generally pull up the postings related to myname on the website http://www.thenakedscientists.com/.
