Problem with Dismissed Hints

I dismissed a hint for Anna Philippina Sarter MBSJ-16T. After dismissing it FT says there are no dismissed hints, but the dismissed hint clearly displays just beneath that statement as shown in the picture below:



Next I dismissed a second hint for her and got the same message as seen in this picture:



The two pictures look identical, but they are not. The first picture is after dismissing one hint. The second picture is after dismissing two hints. If you were to go to her PID you could scroll down and see that there are two dismissed hints.

Is this the way it is supposed to display? Am I doing something wrong?

    I thought that I saw this myself recently; but, did not take much notice, as I was so busy working.

    I was just happy that the "Hint" was, dismissed; and, recorded, I did not care much that the "Numeric" value of "Dismissed Hints" had not immediately changed, I thought that It may have to do with a time lapse; but, never went back to check.

    But, 'Yes', now that you raised the matter in this post, I reckon that you have identified a problem/issue ( ie. "Bug" ) that needs addressing/fixing.

    I do not think that that it is the way it is supposed to be; and, I do not think that you are doing anything wrong.

    Just another problem/issue ( ie. "Bug" ) that "FamilySearch" needs to add to the ever increasing collection, that addressing/fixing, subject to limited resources and competing priorities.

    Good one.

    Furthermore, even if the message doesn't show up, you still get an incorrect count on the number of dismissed hints:



    There was a bug a little earlier reported where the Hints and Dismissed Hints values didn't make sense (for example, in the above image, the "Data Problem" was considered a dismissed "Hint". This may be a result of a "broken fix" on that problem. See the first image and discussion in:

  • On all of the count (not being correct) issues, what happens when the display is refreshed (reloaded)?

    I’m working from my iPad and don’t have my computer available.

    Also, does the os/browser combination have any impact.

    It really sounds like a significant bug has been uncovered.
