Since the introduction of the new notifications system, my dashboard has been defective. I can select but cannot view my reader or any of the other tabs; the pages won’t load. I’ve tried using Internet Explorer 9 as well as my standard browser, Google Chrome. Is there a way to solve this problem myself? Or what might be causing it? Thanks in advance.
