No, not the ones in the bottom-right corner, but the browser desktop

No errors in the browser console or in the server logs.

I can reproduce this with new tasks: Set the due date to this morning,
enable reminder, mark the task as done, and the notifications keep
appearing, even when I log into Horde with another browser that has
never seen this task in the 'active' state. There should be no
notifications for completed tasks -- I believe this might be an issue
with Horde.

Only when I check "done" in the initial task creation form, I will never
get to see notifications.

(Another, browser-related usability problem that I discovered is this:
When notifications are 'dismissed' by clicking the X in the top-right
corner, the keep re-appearing. They can be dismissed for good by
clicking into the client area of the notification. This won't give any
visual feedback in either Chromium or Firefox, but afterwards the
notification is gone for good.)
