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

I am not getting notified about new comments at all.

The StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ icon never turns red, and comments in the inbox tab are never highlighted.

If I manually go to the inbox tab, there are lots of comments that I was never notified about.

This has been happening for a week or two now, in Chrome and Firefox on multiple computers.

I've seen this too, albeit intermittently. Do the live-refresh features work for you (notification of new answers, comments, questions)? – Martijn Pieters Jan 11 '13 at 16:46
I had it for a weekend a week or so ago. Seems to have fixed itself for me. – Jon Skeet Jan 11 '13 at 16:51
@MartijnPieters: Yes; those work fine. Fresh page loads still fail to show an inbox. – SLaks Jan 11 '13 at 16:52
@SLaks: Interesting. All the live-refresh features work fine for me too, just sometimes the inbox fails to notify me of messages. I can still click on the icon, go to the inbox and see the messages though when that happens. – Martijn Pieters Jan 11 '13 at 16:55
@MartijnPieters: When that happens, do you see new messages highlighted? – SLaks Jan 11 '13 at 16:56
@SLaks: I do not see new messages highlighted, I realize from other clues that there could be a new message and I visit the global inbox in the drop-box. – Martijn Pieters Jan 11 '13 at 21:20
@SLaks I'm glad to hear that you've not been picking up comment notifications, if you know what I mean! – David Heffernan Jan 14 '13 at 23:24
@DavidHeffernan: Yes; I do know what you mean. :) Interestingly, your comment (this one) was the first comment notification I've seen in ~2 weeks – SLaks Jan 14 '13 at 23:25
I've also missed some notifications today, but it's been intermittent. – David Heffernan Jan 14 '13 at 23:33
I've seen this again yesterday. Deleted comments seem to be playing a part in this, but I am not that certain yet. – Martijn Pieters Jan 21 '13 at 18:32
As for the 'too localized' close vote, several users have now seen this. Yes, it's vague, but it is not resolved, nor is it someone's browser. Too Localized is a little premature. – Martijn Pieters Jan 21 '13 at 18:33
