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.
