I got 27 reputation from this question Clicking "add / show xx more comment" doesn't focus on comment area (+25 for upvoted and +2 for accept). I have been shown a +27 notification in the top-bar and I have viewed it.

Again, I noticed a new +27 notification, I checked it and it just showed me the old notification. This has happened thrice after the original notification.

(I really don't know if this bug can be reproed but I just felt it would be good to report it).

Browser : Nightly V26.0a OS : Windows 7

    Just to ask the obvious, are you jumping between browser tabs a lot? Or are you seeing this when you see a notification and click back? I've noticed this on those two occasions. – JMK Dec 2 '13 at 22:00
  • Remember it happening so +1 but now I don't reset anymore to test something so can't repro. Anyway, what browser/OS? – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Dec 2 '13 at 22:00
  • If you keep a tab open and go back in history, this'll happen, or if you keep the tab open and have already viewed the reputation, see Dupe of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/207420/… – Martijn Pieters Dec 2 '13 at 22:01
  • @JMK You are right about jumping between tabs a lot. but then once I check the notification on one tab it will disappear on all other tabs. Until it shows up again on all tabs. – Walker Dec 2 '13 at 22:04
  • @Tijesunimi Yeah, what I was getting at was that this can cause you to loose track of which tabs you visited in which order, causing you to think you've seen a notification twice etc! – JMK Dec 2 '13 at 22:06
  • @JMK No that is not my case. – Walker Dec 2 '13 at 22:11
  • No bother, stating the obvious! – JMK Dec 2 '13 at 22:12
  • This happened to me last night after the question I answered with a CW-answer got deleted; it caused the reputation (from the day, AFAICT) to re-show in the top-bar. – Matt Dec 3 '13 at 9:41

The popup wasn't refreshing after a real-time update previously. Jarrod just pushed a large JS refactor that should resolve all of these cases. Now when you get a real-time update, we'll force a reload of the associated dialog.
