After a weekend away, a few pixels adrift with the mouse and everything marked as read... Separating the two, if possible, would be a distinct ergonomic improvement.

I never bother with 'All unread topics' and instead I always click on the 'Show unread posts since last visit' link, which is located near the top LH corner, next to the avatar icon/picture. Essentially these two links perform the same function.

Alas, this sort of thing is a fundamental part of the forum software - something you mess with at your peril. In true IT consultant style, I'm too scared and know to leave well alone!  :o

Not entirely. I usually use the "Recent Unread" but if I have been away, or accessed from a different location or device, sometimes it only shows a small proportion of the unread posts.
