Brett, what is that number that precedes the tab title on the screen? I'm up to 53 on the HS tab.

Maybe browser-related?  I'm using Firefox 60.0.1 on Win10, and I don't see any numbers on any tabs anywhere on the page.

I'm using a version of Firefox on a Mac, and it appears not only on the tab but also in the header for the browser itself. It varies, so it must have something to do with the number of new/unread postings since last visit or something akin to that.

It's OK - I've subsequently learned the answer. If you click on the bell icon with the red dot next to it that displays a drop down list of posts some of which are in threads you have commented in. The ones in that list with the red dot are those referring to something or even a like etc. you may have posted. It's part of the notification option.

If you click on each one it brings up the post and the number in the tab reduces. As I have 53 in the tab at the moment I'll eventually clear it.
