As in the Subject. If I click on the envelope at the left of a thread to mark it as read, every thread in that forum seems to be marked as read.

It has always been that way. And that's what I want.
Ok, strictly speaking, the old behavior was all threads below and including the one clicked were marked read. If this was a sticky post, then all threads were marked read. I have not tried to test whether it is still exactly the same. My own practice was to click the topmost envelope when I had finished reading the posts of interest to me on that page.
Likewise, in a merged ALL tab, where several forums are merged in a single tab, the old behavior of clicking an envelope was to mark as read all posts from the same actual forum, which typically did not include all posts seen on that merged ALL tab.
Now maybe I'll go and experiment to see what it does now.--
