That's a bug ... the "new mail" notification action should supply a
correct timestamp. In that case its either a gnome-shell or geary bug
(can't recall how notification actions are handled right now).
Anyways when you find bugs like this please file them ... installing
an extension to paper over issues is not really a fix.
I understand that, but when
there are several cases where I see the
* opening a file i just downloaded in firefox causes the notification to
* starting a gui app from the terminal
all result in a notification that i need to subsequently click on, even
though i haven't changed focus of any window after I made the launch
I only noticed the geary one today on my new f21 machine. Also, it's not
clear from the notification as to why it is appearing sporadically, so
it's hard for me as a user to have defined it as a bug with timestamps.
should i file a bug against each application that shows the notification?
