I can open my reputation and the Stack Exchange dropdown, but when I go to hover over my Inbox, it loads for a fraction of a second and then disappears.

I had 3 notifications and when I clicked on the inbox symbol, they disappeared, so it assumes I've read them but I have not.

I have managed to reproduce this in all of the browsers I have installed (Chrome, Edge, IE, Firefox and Opera).

I get an error in the console:

This should now be fixed.

We had some issues with Documentation tags being merged/aliased that broke some notifications.
