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

On Stackoverflow, whenever a new notification comes and I refresh the web page, for some seconds, it shows 99 notifications and then change to 1.

I did not get a chance to take a screenshot, but I am trying. I will post the screenshot as soon as I will get.

Yep, noticed that myself. – Oded Jun 6 '12 at 16:48

I saw that about an hour ago, you're not imagining it ;) – Yannis Jun 6 '12 at 16:52
Will someone post a screen shot then? :P – Lix Jun 6 '12 at 17:07
Repro - When you have one (or more) notifications, refresh the page. A 99 will turn to 1. (using Chrome here) – Oded Jun 6 '12 at 17:07
@Lix - It appears for something like a fraction of a second. Difficult to capture. – Oded Jun 6 '12 at 17:08
@ode - ah... I see.. in that case never mind... ;) Felix - if you want a screenshot – Lix Jun 6 '12 at 17:15

This is what happens when you mixup Min & Max.

Desired behavior is only showing up to 99 notifications, not only more than 99 notifications.

A fix for this will go out with the next build.

6 obligatory xkcd alt text. If ever you replace Jon Skeet with AI, keep in mind :P – Manishearth Jun 6 '12 at 17:50
Is this one the same bug, or a new one? – tchrist Jun 11 '12 at 23:50
This has just happened to me: so still awaiting the next build? – Richard Jun 12 '12 at 7:12
Ditto. (9 more) – Rawling Jun 12 '12 at 7:50
