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

As simply as the title states, sometimes when I click the red circle with a number to go to my new inbox messages in the StackExchange Dropdown, nothing happens. I've never experienced this before, it's only begun lately and it seems to be happening more and more. What could be wrong?

Edit: this user has the same problem, and he is also using FF12, which cannot be a coincidence.

It looks like you're not alone here:… (I haven't seen it happen yet, though) – balpha May 21 '12 at 14:56
I'm having the same problem, and I'm on Chrome 19, but I'm not sure if it has something to do with my SE extensions. Clicking Stack Exchange instead of the red circle works fine though. (CC @balpha) – Dennis May 21 '12 at 15:29
Just tried with all extension (SE and general) disabled. No difference. – Dennis May 21 '12 at 15:40

This will be fixed in the next build, some shuffling in the inbox code left the click handler for the little number hanging under certain conditions.

So you shuffled a "notifications" tab in there? Nice! :-) – Arjan May 21 '12 at 18:42
That's handy indeed. – MDeSchaepmeester May 21 '12 at 18:55
@Arjan - new feature, notifications tab. – Kevin Montrose May 21 '12 at 19:06
