Why does Facebook report unread messages after refreshing?

There’s a problem I’ve been having with Facebook as it has been telling me I have new messages every single time I refresh the page or go on a different webpage that is still part of Facebook.

For example, I got a notification from Facebook a few minutes ago after loading the page saying I have 166 unread messages. The problem is, I checked all the threads were supposedly unread messages were found, and I know for sure that I’ve read them already.

Please help me figure out how to fix this bug since it’s really annoying to get notifications saying you have 200 new messages every time you refresh the page.

It also makes it hard to tell if I’ve received a new message or not. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
