Can't click notification icon

Clicking on the notification icon:

Doesn't do anything. I noticed this just now. It's probably been a month or more since the last time I had a notification. Back then it worked as expected (created a dropdown with individual notifications).

What happens now is absolutely nothing, as if I didn't click the mouse at all. I tried holding the mouse button down for a second. That didn't change anything.

I think the notification is for a new comment on the EE site, but clicking causes nothing to happen no matter which site I'm at, including here on meta.

click in the white area below the number/text instead of directly on the icons.

That works. Thanks. I found that clicking above the number and icon also works. Apparently you have to click in the box, but not directly on the number or icon.

It's weird that I never ran afoul of this before. Of course as soon as it appeared not to work, I was extra careful to click in the middle directly on the icons.


As a separate but related question, is there some way to see pending notifications other than clicking on the icon? I looked around in my profile but didn't see anything.

Bug is a dupe, but notifications history isn't (6 comments)

The notifications bug is known and we're working on a fix. (It has to be made in one repo, propagated to another via npm, and then of course deployed. I think we're waiting for the npm step at the moment.) The bug happens if you click directly on the number or text, but if you click in the whitespace around them, it works. It wasn't always broken; some other recent change indirectly caused the problem.

You can see all of your notifications on this page. We're in the process of adding that as a tab on the profile page for improved visibility, and also moving the link in the notifications drop-down to the top near "mark all as read".
