           Summary: Personal list of threads/messages should have a local
                    table of contents.

        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

Each time when I select "mark as read" on a thread on the page "new messaegs
(some number)" of my personal user-specific links, the page is redisplayed and
both paging and scrolling are started from the newest thread. Since I do not
mark newer threads as read before having read then, and I read them in roughly
chronologial order, I have to page back to where I was before, then scroll down
to where I was before, and continue reading. With several 100 threads and
messages, this is extremely time consuming. I spend a magnitude more time
waiting for pages to be sent to me just to immediately go to the next page, and
scrolling down than actually reading. Unfortunately I do not have a choice to
avoid using this extension, else I would.

Thus I suggest to include a table of contents in the personal page, so as to
avoid the need of scolling to threads. Since impersonal threaded pages have one
already, I believe, this would be pretty easy to do.
