I think (1) is a bug, but (2) is working as expected, but let's ask Bram who designed this flow and knows best.

This is indeed a bug. The notification should appear again when you reload the page.

It may seem annoying and intrusive to have a notification that always appears, but that’s the point. This notification is only seen in a very specific situation (ie. if user has added exception), and only until the site has fixed its issues.

In the future, we should make a plan to remove the notification from the bar to the Control Center.

This is intended.

Now that the RC4 override has been removed I don't think there is anything to do here.
