Notifications seem broken

I have received several popup notifications this morning, that seemed to be people subscribing to my updates or commenting on my scores.  But when i click on them, I get an error message about the server not being found -- there seems to be an invalid url in the notification, and none of them show up in my "bell" page.

Commentaries (by me) on details of Bach 4-voiced chorales available in one place

Over the last couple of years, Gertim (now @SDG) has input the entire body of 389 Bach 4-voiced (some are 5) chorale settings collected by Julius Richter in the 1890's, published by Kalmus.   As he has done so, I have commented upon particularly interesting compositional, particularly contrapuntal, details.  He is in the process of moving his corpus, as it were, off of MuseScore, onto his own sites, with custom software.  As part of that, I have digested all of my comments on the chorales (and some responses by Gertim and others) into an additional single page:  https://www.bach-chorales.info/BachChorales/BachChoraleCommentSummary.html
which I think would interest anyone here who really cares about what happened "when Bach met Counterpoint", as it were.  Links back to the playable scores on bach-chorales.info are provided with each comment-set. While a few are mere expressions of subjective wonder or delight, the vast majority deal nuts-and-bolts with dissonance, consonance, gesture, and similar details. Do take a look.

Embedded iframe with YouTube recording fails in some web browsers: FIXED?

This is a problem which has existed for quite a while, and it would be good to sort it out definitively.

Many of us use the "Share" option to embed an HTML "iframe" of the MuseScore player in our own website. It's really useful for making practice files for choral societies and church choirs.

With a MuseScore file that creates its own playback, it usually doesn't matter which web browser you use: it plays normally.  But if the score is sync'd to a performance recording on YouTube as the default sound source, then the playback doesn't work on all web browsers. 

Here is the result of a test of various browsers which I ran today:
-  Chrome 73.0.3683.75  = broken
-  Edge 42.17134.1.0 = broken
-  Firefox 65.0.2 = plays ok
-  Internet Explorer 11.648.17134.0 = plays ok
-  Opera 58.0.3135.107 = plays ok
-  Vivaldi 2.3.1440.60 = plays ok

You can run the test yourself on my HTML page, where the SATB player is linked to a YouTube performance by Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir:
