Is this happening continuously, or just to items that you last visited 
prior to the afternoon of the 15th (in which case the URLs have changed 
from www.wikipedia.com to www.wikipedia.org, and your browser will not 
recognize them as the same)?

If you want to be sure to see changes to articles that you might be 
interested in, may I recommend using the Watchlist? Pages that you have 
added to your watchlist (click "Watch this page") appear in bold in the 
Recentchanges list, even if you log in on a different computer or with a 
different browser. (You must be logged in for it to keep track, naturally.)
