I run into this problem as well, and I fixed it by simply npm install --build-from-source sharp, FYI.
BUG. Notifications are read during the transition to the profile
Notifications marked as read when you come in the profile are user.
Example in the picture:
- Hooray! We have a new notification!
- Go to the profile of a person.
- Notification is considered as read. Refresh page to verify this.
Thank you, Alice, you are no longer needed.
