Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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.

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.

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
