Today I answered this question. Later, I failed to get any notifications for comments that were posted for my answer.

enter image description here

My inbox is filled with comments, but no red notification appeared. Why is that?

Note: I'm sure that I didn't have the inbox open in another tab.

    When you load your inbox, what does it look like? Are you sure you didn't just dismiss it without noticing? – animuson Oct 11 '13 at 5:27
  • @animuson I'm sure that I didn't see any notification (red icons) while I check my inbox – Praveen Oct 11 '13 at 5:30

    You most likely have the inbox open somewhere, maybe in a forgotten tab maybe even different computer. When you have it open in one place, no red numbers will appear. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Oct 11 '13 at 6:15
  • @ShaWizDowArd seems weird, now I'm getting count notification for other answers. But I'm sure that I didn't opened the inbox in other tab. let me close this question, since the problem persisted only for me. – Praveen Oct 11 '13 at 7:03

    Seems to be off-topic This happened only for me, so I think this is not a big deal now I am getting notifications for the other answers. – Praveen Oct 11 '13 at 7:05
  • This happens to me all the time. New comments to my answers without @myname don't generate notification, though seems like only sometimes, hard for me to test easily. – Erik Eidt Jul 11 '15 at 0:38
