Notifications sometimes stay unread after clicking
I noticed that sometimes when I click notifications, they keep reappearing after I refresh. If I refresh several times, and click several times, eventually it "sticks" and they become read. I don't think it makes a difference to open in current tab vs. new tab. I'm not sure about exact steps to reproduce, but it happens very often to the point where I don't "need" to reproduce it.
I use Firefox fork with many privacy addons, I won't list them all here. I think it would be more useful to figure out what specifically is required for this bug to not happen, so that people can adjust their set up accordingly.
- Does anyone else experience this?
- What causes it?
I assume that when I click on the notification, some kind of request is sent to the CD API to the tune of "mark notification 123 as read". You'd think that this would either work or not. What could possibly make it work sometimes?
Kind of a dupe of https://meta.codidact.com/posts/275896, but that question has less detail, no activity since 3 years, and the asker has not been active in 2 years.
