I have an ad blocker on, so I get the empty box at the bottom of the screen once a day.

If I go to "User CP" or "New Posts" and open one of the threads to the first unread reply, I'll get the empty box at the bottom. Once I click on the "X" to dismiss it, the URL changes from the bookmarked first unread reply to a blank bookmark, so from "....html#post2336805" to "....html#" which takes me back to the top of that page of the thread.

In other words, dismissing the blank window makes me lose my place in the thread because it makes the bookmark go away.

Since I usually open threads in a new window, I've discovered the workaround of pressing the back arrow button, which restores the bookmark but not the empty window.
^ this exactly is my experience.
