I've had similar problems occur sporadically. It seems to be some kind of bug in Web-News. I haven't made any attempt to correct it, but I suspect it has to do with cookies or some sort of session information. I think the problem is that I refreshed one newsgroup, then I clicked a message from another newsgroup (in another tab). And for whatever reason, it gives be links for the newsgroup that I had refreshed more recently. It's annoying, but pnews doesn't give me any kind of threaded view, so Web-News is still an improvement. And I can quickly edit the URL to give me the right link.

Agreed, the threaded view is still an improvement. I can live with this bug PS: sorry for posting on D.announce, I made a mistake.
