In Gmail and Google+ a 1 is displayed as I have an update, but when I click on it, the balloon that shows-up is plain white and the clicks on it are transparent (i.e. they point to the links below the balloon). Is there any known fix?

Are you using AdBlock, Ghostery, or anything similar? That may be the cause. Try disabling your addons and see if it works. – Shiki Apr 25 '13 at 9:23
Thank you Shiki! Disabling AdBlock did the trick! – mcris Apr 25 '13 at 9:29
You may want to check your filters. You can do that in Addons / AdBlock Plus -> Prefrences. If you are using "Fanboy's list", try "EasyList". If you are on Easylist, go with Fanboy. And so on. One will work. – Shiki Apr 25 '13 at 9:44
