    After updating to Android 9, I often (not always) get this mess. Any idea what's going on here? Excuse the redactions.

    If you only pull them partially down, or push them partially up, you can get that. Pull all the way down, then scroll through them.

    Looks like you have ads in your notifications panel check what apps are causing this

    I agree with this. OP, try to clear your notifications dismissing or checking out the "legit" ones like Gmail, Android System and such and then post another screenshot with those ads. They could come from apps filled with adware or from your browser, if you allowed some sites to send you notifications.

    Got it. Ads as notifications after allowing them from the browser.

    It is an LG V30. I think what I have is different than what's in that other thread. What you're seeing here are my email notifications, not ads. Sometimes they look jumbled. Sometimes they look somewhat normal. I can often swipe up, then down again and that straightens them out.

    Funny, I waited so long for PIE, and in the back of my mind, I thought, "who cares, my phone is fine now, and PIE might do something negative." Well here we are.

    Unfortunately, you can't wipe the cache partition on LG phones, so that troubleshooting step is off the table. Does this happen in Safe Mode? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-36664

    Yes, it appears to happen in Safe Mode too.

    Is all of that jumble actually part of the same email or notification, or is any of that extraneous? In other words, does that Guitar Center email actually contain something about a chance to win $50,000?

    The $50,000 prize is part of the Guitar Center email. The "secret ingredient" is from the Smith Brothers email, the "top 3 tips" is from the Facebook email. So - doesn't appear to be extraneous.

    I also noticed, when jumbled, clicking on the notification isn't opening the email app.

    Does it happen with other app notifications as well, or only for the Gmail app? What if you use a different email app?

    It occurs on both email apps, "Gmail" (both email addresses there), and "Email" with my work (Exchange Account) email. In the original post, the image shows the red Gmail label at the top, as well as the bluish @Email label below. Both have jumbly stuff.

    I'm guessing it's a bug with the Pie update, as you may have already suspected as well. It looks like there were problems with the initial rollout, but that was a couple of months ago: https://piunikaweb.com/2019/08/20/lg...rom-lg-bridge/. Can you try reinstalling the firmware via LG Bridge?

    My phone doesn't appear to have LG AirDrive, so I don't think LG Bridge is compatible. I wonder if there is another way to reinstall. Maybe through Verizon?

    Good idea -- if you're on Verizon, then try their Software Repair Assistant: http://www.verizonwireless.com/suppo...e-base-164676/

    I see the same thing, on the same phone. Usually email apps doing it...9 Folders and Typeapp. Definitely not adware. You can clean the cache on the v30 and it doesn't help. Seems like a display bug. I just live with it.

    Oh, you can clear the system cache partition on the V30? I recall there was maybe one or two LG models where it was possible (and I think maybe only on certain carriers), but in general, they don't let you.
