    You have to update the 'all watched threads' page....
    ....why I put tab to it on my browser bar.

    It's no actually a 'refresh', but does the same thing.
    I use it to go from reading/replying to a post,
    back to the 'all watched' list page,
    back arrow and refresh both in one click.

    Those are from before the conversion to the new software, so XenForo won't actually have the correct flag set to show you have actually read it. I'm not 100% certain if that was even considered during the migration.
