Favicon "new topic" indicator gets stuck

(Barry van Oudtshoorn) #1

I’m not 100% sure on how to reproduce this, but I was jumping in and out of topics fairly quickly this morning, using the “back” button on my mouse. That is:

  1. Hover over oldest topic, and click it.
  2. When done, without moving my mouse (much), click the physical “back” button on my mouse.
  3. Move the mouse up to the next topic, and click it.

I would imagine that there would be less than a second, maybe less than half a second, between steps 2 and 3. Clicking “back” will reload the topic list, so I’m not sure if it’s a race condition – the call to change the favicon gets cancelled because I load another topic too quickly – or if it’s unrelated and just a bug from using the “back” button. I wouldn’t expect the latter, as I would imagine many people would have run into it before now…

Clicking the main “home” logo doesn’t correct the issue, but refreshing the page does.
