Notification icon flashes from white to black to white
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I see this on pages that have an enabled Flow board, like for instance:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia_talk:Flow/Developer_test_page

If I have a new message (and only then), the icon on the red badge flashes from white to black to white.

Screenshot of it happening (ignore the pink background, that's intentional):

on second try, it seems that i have it on all pages, it's just infinitely faster on non Flow pages, so that I hardly notice the flash

I've seen the same thing happening on e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page .

sv.wp is complaining (as a collective) about this.

This affects all skins except MonoBook (which used to have a different flashing problem...T111821).
