I'd like to post a suggestion, maybe there is an addon for lithium that does that ?
When I open a board, I see the list of threads. for each one, I can see the number of unread messages. Today, when I want to visually detect them, I have to use Firefox, do a search for 0 (the zero character) and make Mozilla Firefox Highlight it. Then I can watch the "unread column" and see immediately what is not 0, meaning there's new msgs to read.
Is it possible to activate something like "only display threads with unread" like in Mozilla Thunderbird ? There is the same addon on simplemachinesforum for example.
Guys, really I don't know how you deal with so many messages everyday. I spend hours everyday reading the forum.

All right, I've looked at the Lithium forum website, it seems like it's not very open for developers. So I designed a greasemonkey script to do that.
GreaseMonkey for Firefox
my "hide threads without new messages" script for the BB Support community forum :

Thank you for constructing the script!

Here are two screenshots that explain what the script does. They are also attached in the bottom of this message.
As you can see, when you are browsing a page, it is not easy to see what are the discussions that contain new posts. My script just hides the discussions that do not contain new messages.
The grease monkey scripts can be activated or deactivated whenever you want, by just clicking on the monkey head in the bottom left corner.
on each screenshot, you can see it :
- color smiling monkey : Grease Monkey is activated
- grey unhappy monkey : Grease Monkey is deactivated.

the script has been updated to be compatible with the new forum that went live a few weeks ago. Please click on the link in the above posts, and simply install it again. The new version of the GS script will automatically override the deprecated version.
Again, I would like to apologize for the delay. But it's Lithium's fault for not providing that feature anyway
