most links on that page open in the right hand frame not in a separate window. if you visit it twice then relead the entire page ( then the link color shows 'unvisited'. sqlite extension shows that visit_count in places.sqlite is zero. this happens in safe mode so its not an extension. it only affects links that open in a frame on that page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.find a reply to any thread. click on it. (link will change color) on it again.(color will not change)
3.reload tab (color will change back to 'unvisited')
Actual Results:  
color will change back to 'unvisited'

Expected Results:  
color should show 'visited'.

please dont tell me that its something simple like i dont have visited color set right or i have 'keep history for' set to zero. i have been on the forums discussing this with people who know what they are doing and they couldnt fix it.

its very hard to use that forum if i cant tell which links are new. i normally just click on all the links then reload to see if there are any new posts. 

btw, it would be extemely convenient if i could just hit a button and cause all links on the page to turn color. there are a hundred posts on that page and clicking every one is a major hassle. it didnt used to be so bad since i didnt have to wait for each post to load before hitting the next one. but now i do and i am on dial up.

I went to , clicked twice on a link with the title  AutoCAD is GREAT , then I reloaded the tab but the color stayed dark blue (visited). So I can't seem to reproduce this.

"autocad is great' was the title of the link. 

i downloaded the newest version of minefield and it doesnt do it so i guess it got corrected somewhere between my original download of firefox beta and now. i would have downloaded minefield before i posted this bug report but it was blocked.  i only just figured out how to unblock it.

This looks to be the same as bug 424110.  There you can find an attached zip file, that demonstrates the problem.
