Since a few days ago, when the red dot appears, indicating new messages, I can't click it. I always have to refresh the page first. Previously it worked fine. It's not the end of the world, but it's annoying. Bug?

Firefox 12.0 on XP SP3.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Dennis - That doesn't seem to be a workaround. That's a solution! :-) (And I hadn't even tried that...) \$\endgroup\$

This will be fixed in the next build.

Sorry about that, some changes behind the scenes made the number not clickable under certain conditions.
