Default The new "notifications" dropdown menu is total junk.

I don't care how many social groups I've been invited to. I want to see how many new PMs I have with one glance, and access them with one click.

Ditch that ****.

Ben, if I click "your notifications", it dumps me into a dropdown menu. It's just a feature for having the feature's sake; it serves no useful purpose.

And I can't seem to accept the single friend request I have anyway. (only one request )

I had it, now its gone.

I have a theory.
I bet the dropmenu only shows up if you have a new notification or new PM.
To test this i PM'd y8s.
