Popular/New/Followed: Followed inop

There's been a few changes around here in Discussions appearance and usage. I noted when I comment on a topic, the "Followed" automatically changes to "Following". OK, no problem. I click that button a lot in Sentence Discussion.

Problem is when I click on Followed column choice, I can't get no satisfaction, er, uh...results. I know there's a bunch in there. Probably a glitch but if it's working for others than maybe I have a glitch..

Songve, a few weeks ago my follow button started switching to following when I made a comment. It had never done that before, in four years, and I always had to click it myself.
However, I soon discovered that those posts were not going to my followed list. The solution I finally found was that I have to unclick the automatic following click, and then click it a second time myself. Then it will go to the followed list. Hope this works for you, too.

Thanks much, Marcy. That worked. How in the world did you figure that out??

After figuring this out how to restore Following, I unclicked this to remove it from my Followed list. Doing that removed everything. Guess I won't do any unclicking to remove it from the list until the bug is exterminated. This is one strange bug.

Just going through the marcy gambit to re-restore my Followed list...EDIT: making this comment to automatically Follow Discussion the unclick that and reclick it. Hope making edits doesn't change all this hard restoration work. EDIT2: Nope, doing edits does not affect viewing of Following.
