Slow notification to show.

I do not know if it’s browser related but on my end, it take near 1-2 minutes to show notifications from the icon on the main page. And sometimes it can take a few days to see the badge saying there are new notifications.

I am alone to see this?

    <p>I've clicked on the notifications bell and let it futz with itself for hours with nothing showing up. I suspect if you've made a lot of comments, the query underlying this feature returns too many records for the code to handle.</p>

    <p>Two minutes is about right. I actually recorded a screen capture video to illustrate this a few days ago but ended up deleting it. </p><p>And I've submitted many emails about notifications just not working at all. Sometimes I won't get them for weeks then suddenly there will be 40. The first one will say it is a few hours old but it will actually be from a comment that is days or weeks old.</p><p>The broken notifications have been a huge pain point for me for as long as I can remember. If this is a widespread issue then I think it is holding back the site. I can only hope it will be a priority this year.</p>

    <p>I have the same issue. This happens to me in Firefox on windows and in Safari on macOS.</p>
