Why doesn't this ever work for me?  Every time I hit that link, I get nothing.

maybe you read them all???   :evil:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

It's your web browser. I use an apple and I was using their "safari" browser, but I had the same problem as you. It turns out that when I opened up my browser it automatically logged me in to my favorite sites which erased the "show unread posts since last visit" because it had logged me in, then when I hit the button, there was nothing new. I hope I made sense  :?

I have an apple laptop and use safari and still get my "show unread posts". Not sure why the difference?

Mac user here.

I had issues with safari on this site - been so long now I don't remember what the problem was. I started using Firefox and all has been well.

I bet it is from restricted settings in your browser. Scripting is probably not being allowed on the page. I bet the link for showing unread posts is run with a script. I have Firefox with a script blocker and have to set it to allow scripts from beemaster.com in order for it to work.

Must you be logged in for it to work?

i think it would not know which posts you had not read, if it didn't know who you were  ;)
