It seems like no matter how many times I look at and clear the "new" messages for my account, they come back as clear when I select the "All Content" icon and return to the front page.
Now after creating this post they changed.
It took about 3 or 4 round trips & refreshes to finally get it to update for me.
I get the same issue every now & then. Hangs around for 6 or 7 attempts to clear it, then suddenly sorts itself, usually after I've given up trying to refresh it.
