Strange - Deleted Resource Info appears in Azure Portal

hi Azure folks

i have no idea why an info section of a strange resource is always shown in the middle of screen of other Azure resources. the strange resource was deleted earlier today.

as shown below, when i manage ANY of other resources, the highlighted section (which refers to a deleted resource) is ALWAYS first shown in the middle of screen until i manually close it by clicking its X button. the deleted resource name is also shown in the top menu bar (highlighted) as well, looks like it is a kind of upper-layer resource though actually not.

as the resource has been deleted, any included item of the resource is shown Not Found.

this nearly drove me crazy as it appeared for every single resource i manage. it seems i have to delete ALL resources to get rid of it.

anyone here ever experienced the same or similar issues? is it a bug or something i did wrong?

kind regards,

It appears as though you have stumbled upon a genuine bug, could be cache- i would suggest clearing browser cache. But if this persists then I highly suggest contacting Microsoft Support for more information and repair. I will agree you caught a strange one. - usually you wouldn't see a Public IP window open when clicking on a storage account at all, much less a deleted one.

once all resources were deleted and re-created everything from the scratch, the strange issue has gone. luckily the resources were for test purpose only otherwise this bug could be really annoying. wondering if it is worth it to report to MS as for now i can't reproduce the same error.

Well unfortunately if you can't reproduce or give steps to reproduce then the chances of them being able to reproduce it are extremely unlikely, and if they can't reproduce it then they can't debug and fix it. so.. if it ever happens again report it, but hopefully that never happens.

actually i knew it should be a software bug from day one, but just wanted to know if any Azure users on EE ever experienced the same or similar issue, and any quick fix or walk around available, if possible.

do you mind i keep the question open for a few more days for more comments? thanks.
