The title pretty much says it all. Opened up the page for the first time today, had a shiny red "Oh you got 3 new somethings" indicator, clicked it, and then... emptiness.

First time this happened to me, I found this question but it's marked as resolved. Also my last visit to the site was < 10 hours ago.


The inbox is working again.

  • [status-norepro] on my side.

  • I'm getting this same problem, Inbox empty. Firefox 3 on Windows XP.

  • Just FYI, the number you blurred isn't a secret; it just a timestamp acting as a cache breaker. But you're right, better save than sorry :)

  • Status-no-longer-repro, seems to be fixed now

  • @balpha Yea, wasn't sure about it and had no time to investigate it any further this morning.

  • @IvoWetzel If you worked with jQuery ajax you'd know that that's the cache busting query added by jQuery automatically :P

  • @IvoWetzel Lies! Everyone knows that JavaScript is just code running on a jQuery plugin.

  • I've also seen this; the 'reset' however didn't remove everything, a single comment made a few hours ago which I remember I've seen before everything got wipes is still there, but everything before that is gone

I'm getting this same problem, Inbox empty. Firefox 3 on Windows XP. Aaand, it hasn't started working for me, unlike the original poster, so please don't mark this answer as 'accepted' yet.

  • New items are showing up - I just can see old ones.

  • Ditto. I just got the notification for your reply.

  • OK now my inbox isn't showing your reply, either.

  • 4
    All those who are saying it's fixed... Um, it isn't for me. In fact, I just came onto stackoverflow.com, had the red circle indicating '1 new notification', and my inbox was completely empty.

  • Me too! Same problem here. Feb 19 '11 at 18:01
  • My inbox has apparently started working again, but I wouldn't be surprised if some others weren't. Seems to be an intermittent problem.
