Notification Alert (?)

Bruce Adler says:

So I don't troll the forum, so I'm not sure if this has already been asked and answered.
When I open my Flickr page (Google Chrome and MS Edge usin Windows 10 Pro), I look for the notification lamp which indicates I have a new notifcation(duh)., and I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terminology.
My problem/issue is that having read the notification, the red circle with the number of pendin notifications stays lit.
Is there a reason why this happens?
Has anyone else experienced this?
And is is there a way of turning this off after having read the message?

Always for me. I have to refresh to remove the number/s.

Refresh, change tabs and come back. just wait a few moments ... I have not figured it out for sure what things make the bell number go away, but it always seems to go away eventually.

Bruce Adler:

If You are admin of any groups, when you click the notification bell, in addition to normal notifications from contacts etc, there is now a separate sub-link for groups You admin, if there are pending members etc, it will stay lit until dealt with.

Hello Flickr, team, thanks for the great work. My concern is on the new notification. I am no longer getting notification on new followers , new comments . I only get notifications on those who have faved my work.

Kindly check and advise.
