A Fedora user reported that liferea's behaviour, when "Show a popup window with new headlines" is enabled, is to display a new popup each time a feed that contains unread items is refreshed. There's no memory that a new/unread item already generated a notification in the previous refresh cycle.

He feels that the correct behaviour would be to issue a popup notification, when an item is really new, not when it is unread.

He has attached a patch to the original bug report:

    The patch makes total sense. To be released with 1.8.16 and 1.10.5.

    Notification will be entirely redone in 1.11 so doesn't affect git master.
