[6.3.x] Minor: Close Icon on Notifications not right?

Hi - small thing...


The notifications in the top right of the browser used to be a cross to close (if you've got them turned on and positioned there).  Since the upgrade, it now shows as a forward arrow (suggesting it'll take me to a new page).


Is this intentional?  Have tried CTRL+F5 in case the style sheet and icon graphics have refreshed.


(I've a parity check running, I can post a screenshot when it's finished)

It is by design and signifies that notifications are moved to the archive.



Didn't it used to be an 'X'?  Maybe we should change back to that for consistency sake?

Used to be an X, yes.  AFAIK it changed in 6.3.  Since it's closing a notification I'd logically have figured it would be an X.  I've used the icon you're using on some web applications to either take the user to a new location, or advance an item onto its next status.


I do like the new "close all notifications" link though, since overnight my docker container can fluctuate, generating lots of docker size notifications.

I thought the 'arrow' is an appropriate way to signal that notifications are moved and not deleted, but if the general feeling is that this is confusing I can make it a 'X' again.
