Some posts (not all) are staying marked as unread after I read them, and one was marked as unread when I was the last person to reply to it.

this has happened to you before, hasn't it? 'cause last time it happened, i couldn't find anything on fj that might be causing the problem, and then, one day, it just started arbitrarily working..

This only happens if you have more than one window at a time surfing FJ and clicked on two or more different pages (forum, index, post whatever) very quickly.
The reason is is because after your browser requests for a page; only after the web server has successfully found it and started downloading will the script instruct to update your position. If you request for another page before it has loaded properly it'll tell FJ that your there now instead.
To solve this just give it some time to load the thread. If you have broadband you wouldn't have to wait long at all.

Basically you're just relocating yourself before FJ has detected that you are or have viewed that thread. It's only FJ who thinks that you haven't viewed that thread yet, simply because your browser hasn't told it.
