Notification window bug

Hello! When I click on the bell symbol uppermost to the right on the website, I get a window with notifications like friend-adds and "double or nothing"-awards. In the right corner of this window there is an x-symbol, which logically is for closing the window. I have a problem where clicking the x does precisely nothing, while clicking anywhere on the site but the window closes the window. This seems to me like a bug, although it is not in the way of anything. I just think that either this should be fixed, or the x removed altogether, as people will figure out how to get the window away by clicking anywhere on the site. Anyone else experiencing this bug? I am on a Mac and running Chrome, if that might be part of it. Thanks!

Clicking "X" has never seemed to work. For the notification menu, certainly, as I remember coming across a similar complaint a few months ago. I'm not sure if the X on the pop-up works for me either. I don't think so. Anyway, it's not as major a problem since clicking anywhere outside the window hides the notification menu again, so it probably isn't that high priority to them right now, but I agree it should be fixed eventually.
