I'm using FF 71.0 on Windows 10 64-bit.
The messages both date from last night around 9 pm, if that helps pinpoint when/where the bug bit. Messages I received in the afternoon cleared immediately upon reading them.
I just sent myself a couple of messages from my TBR account, and the notifications cleared once I clicked 'See conversation.' They did not clear by going to my profile page and clicking on 'You have a new comment.' They also didn't clear when I clicked on the number icon to go directly to the comment wall.
(I don't do a lot of PMing on this site, so I don't actually remember how they've cleared in the past. Just thought the above might be useful info.)
I just noticed that if I click on "see conversation", the notice goes away, but not on private comments.
When I post to a thread, then click on the talk tab, the thread I just posted to has "one unread", that is, my post shows up as unread. It never did that before. Whenever I have posted, the thread would be marked as read. Hmm.
I have both Safari and Firefox on a Mac OS version 10.13.6 (17G9016).
In Account Settings, I turned off the e-mail messages (except for 'State of the Thing' from LT) last spring when the Russian bot got into the LT system.
Like others here, my Wall comments do not clear (as of 2 days ago).
And I have had 1 e-mail from LT other than the 'State of the Thing'.
I'm using Safari on an iMac.
In the meantime, if you'd like to clear your notifications for the sake of your own sanity, you can archive those private comments and the notifications should go away. Thanks again.
You don't have to comment to make it easier to follow. Just star the topic.
Okay, just wasn't sure if that option was on your radar. (It's amazing how easy it is to miss things!)
It was a number-limit bugged there from the beginning. We only now just hit the wall. :)
Sorry for all the inconvenience. Note: The comments are still unread. Read them and it will now work.
