Okay, this is a bit confusing to explain, but when I go to the notifications page:
The last notification I received, at time of writing, was 5 hours, 50 minutes ago.
That's the notification at the top of the list on that page. It's the last notification I have received, as of writing this post. We will call that notification P1A (Page one: P1, A: first item).
That's correct, and how it should be.
At the bottom of that page is a reply that I received on June 19. That is also correct. These items are in the correct order. This last item will be P1B.
So then I navigate to the second page of my notifications.
On the second page, the top item in the list is another notification from June 19. That makes sense. The last item in the list is from May 19. That also makes sense. These are P2A and P2B.
On to the third page.
On the third page of my notifications, the top item is from May 19 as well. That makes sense. The last item is from May 9. Once again, that makes sense. These are P3A and P3B.
But now... let's go back a page.
Going back to the second page in my notifications, the comment at the top of the page is from June 19, as it was before.
Except, that specific comment from June 19 is the last comment from the first page. P1B, and it's now at the top of the page, not the bottom (like it was on page one).
And indeed, after going back to the second page of notifications from the third page, the last item of the second page is my most recently received notification, which is the first item from the first page. P1A.
That... does not seem correct.
Here is a nice table that hopefully helps to illustrate what I'm describing:
