Getting random alerts for stuff I'm not looking at?

Recommended Posts

I keep getting random alerts for stuff that I'm not even looking at which is really bothersome, I was last looking at the news area.

Only had one chrome tab, I do remember looking at the thread and closing the tab so I don't know if that's classing it as "Looking"?

That's ultra shitty if that's the case

That notification can only be sent if the tab is currently open (it's not the same system as for follow notifications, which will display if any ltt tab is open, or the system used by YouTube (which works even if youtube isn't open)). There is no way for a notification like that to be sent when the tab is closed, so it can only have been caused by having left the tab open in a window that you forgot about (minimised, different virtual desktop, etc), or because Chrome is doing something extremely weird and not at all sensible.


I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

This might be related, if I get another instance of it I'll report it again.
