    I don't get a page 3 at all; are you on 10 posts per page? What happens if you change your posts per page to something higher?

    Edit: I temporarily lowered my PPP and had no issues with the third page.

    I'm seeing the same problem you are, Ehsan. FF18 on Linux Mint Debian Edition.

    Changing to 100 PPP removes the problem entirely because the whole thread now fits on one page.

    Changing to 50 PPP changes the thread to 2 pages. Clicking on page 2 refreshes page 1.

    Using 25 or less PPP has the same problem as the OP.

    What's happened is that there are 50 posts in that thread, but for one reason or another (I didn't look closely), not all 50 posts are visible. This happens from time to time - sometimes blocked spam or posts that are automatically flagged that need to be moderated, etc. These are usually, though not always, spam posts that the software "thinks" is spam - and leaves a place holder waiting for a moderator to "okay" the post (else delete the post.) There are a couple of other things that can be causing it as well. Usually, the page thing isn't an issue, unless they linger for quite a while right at 50 or however many posts depending on the number of posts per page that you're viewing. It appears that if that thread gains 2 more posts, the issue will automatically resolve itself.
