But when go to the messenger or click on the Messenger Icon, there are no new messages. I tried deleting the Facebook cookie but that doesn't get rid of the new message alert. It started after I posted an item for sale on Marketplace. I know it isn't critical, but it's annoying. Any way to delete the notification do it doesn't recur?

Doing this seems to have resolved it (for now):

 

  • Go to your messenger app or open your inbox in a browser.
  • Click on a recent message and click on ‘mark as unread’ as shown in the picture below.

Ohhhh... the red dot was back today when I logged in.

 

I am also getting friend requests from members I know I already I'm friends with.

<Grrr>

 

Wish I could help but: 1) I refuse to use Facebook and 2) I'm fresh out of ideas. Hopefully someone else will drop in here with some ideas to try.

I went to the Marketplace page and looked at my notifications. Didn't do anything but that, but that annoying red dot is gone (for now). Just wanted you to know.
