I'm not sure if this is just me, but I thought I would bring it up to be sure.

I'm having a series of private messages with someone on the forum. Now, I've noticed that when I receive a reply to my message I receive a popup box like so:

However here's the thing: the popup refers me to a previous conversation that I had been having back in June, rather than the new private message that I received from a different user today.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me? I'm on Firefox 22 (portable, if that makes a difference) and Windows 7.

Was that the one where I was asking about the hottie in your avatar? :p

Also, cannot say I've had this issue, do you encounter the same thing on other browesers also?

 

(Might be worth pointing Timan to this too)

I turned those popups off, very annoying. But this PM from June, is it in a different folder or something, seems weird that it does that! The upgrade was on June 17th, if the message was sent on that date you may want to delete it, because it could have got messed or something (flagged as unread each time?).

 

PM popups only ever show the oldest unread, even if you have more than one new PM, so that could be it.

I don't do folders for my PMs. I like a bit of mess. ;)

There was only one new PM, from yesterday. The PM from June had been read.

It doesn't matter to me anymore as I have gone and disabled it myself (I don't get many PMs. :( But that means that I notice when one does come in. :laugh:) but it may be worth checking a bit more if other users report something similar. (Y)

The notification icon (top right) for PM's shows the title and who it's from, I find that more than enough :p

This definitely happens to me as well. I didn't report it as I don't get many PMs either lol. Popup shows the last reply from a previous conversation.

Not sure. As I said I turned it off, and even if it was on I don't think I've received a PM since first mentioning the issue.
