Which code base is this about (and could it be associated to this task)? MobileFrontend? Notifications?

@Nirzar - do we have three states for notifications? Red - unread and unopened, blue - unread but opened, bell - read? On there's three states, but not here.

Change display of notifications count

@Nirzar, how should the circle look when we have 99+ notifications? With the current dimensions this label doesn't fit into the circle. Can you create a mock for that? Thanks.

you can change the width the circle so it's kind of a pill shape. will that work in your opinion?

@Nirzar - maybe it's just me, but the edges are looking a little pixelated?

this needs work. i wanted to post actual fixes but just keeping this comment so it doesn't go forward

No pixelation on my end:

@Nirzar, can you also include steps to reproduce issues?

There's no pixelation. but here are visual fixes that are needed, i'm just listing down overall fixes for header work based on what i'm seeing at staging

  1. the size of the notification circle is correct but the font size should be 13px. note: if you just change the font size, the circle shrinks so you will need to add extra padding to keep the circle the same
  1. in the outline version the border width is 1px, it needs to be 2px to match stroke width of icons
  1. the inset shadow for .header-container is missing.
box-shadow: inset 0px -1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.08)
Very imp: the border-bottom transparent shouldn't be there but i don't know why it's there so let's talk about removing it *
  1. might be related to border bottom but when i trigger search, the whole thing moves up by 1px which is very apparent and we need to fix it. it looks unstable
  1. the search icon is wrong size.

@Nirzar, some of the points don't belong to this task. Can you add those to the parent task? I'll take care of the notification related ones.

Notification count UI fixes

FYI be careful when testing developments in feature branch due to the open bug about template partials not invalidating the master template. I was running memcached so was not seeing what I should be seeing. Be sure to restart memcached before testing anything in the branding branch.

can we fix padding to .circle to

padding: 0 7px;

it's not a circle anymore

Should the number be vertically aligned?

@Jdlrobson yes but i thought if i ask for it, people will throw stuff at me :( actually the circle should be a circle even for 2 digits. if you look at the mocks. there's space

@Nirzar, it doesn't look like a circle in your mock too: T152457#2953443

@bmansurov that is for 3 characters, i wanted to have pill for 3 characters and circle for 2
