Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Since recently, the StackExchange button asynchronously updates itself (meaning it shows new notifications without needing to reload the page). This is all nice and dandy, however I usually have multiple tabs open and the notification doesn't get reset when I click on the button in any one tab.

This is a bit disruptive, as that little red dot in the corner naturally catches my attention. Can has asynchronous reset?

If it can set itself, it can unset itself. Good point. – Nanne Mar 13 '12 at 7:11
+1 This has been bothering me as well. :( – Tom Wijsman Mar 13 '12 at 12:06
I just tried this, and it works now (checking the notification cleared them in all my tabs). – jadarnel27 May 11 '12 at 13:44

There were some rough edges around clearing the inbox count on other tabs. This will be fixed in the next deploy.
