The browser should show the same list of alerts as the following command:
$ sealert -l '*'
It's a list of all stored alerts.
If an alert is ignored, setroubleshood server doesn't sent DBUS signal with
the alert and therefore seapplet doesn't show a notification. But when you open
sealert browser, the alert should be there.
There's another button `List All Alerts` where you can list all alerts and see
their statuses and how many time they occurred.
I guess somehow the alerts I
ignored got cleared from the database,
because when I run sealert -l '*' I get nothing.
There is no button 'List All Alerts' shown in the version of sealert I
If you have 'No Alerts' then you might be just lucky.
Guess I am lucky.
You can try to generate an alert to check if it works correctly. Something like:
$ sudo runcon system_u:system_r:httpd_t:s0 bash -c 'hostname'

There have been some recent policy updates and I want to now receive alerts for those
alerts to see if they were fixed in the update.
