Live stream appears offline until page is refreshed
This has started happening in the last couple of months.
When I start streaming, the Stream Manager never automatically recognises that I'm live, never shows me a live preview, never activates controls such as "Run Ad" or "Clip That", etc.
Meanwhile my channel page just keeps hosting whomever I was autohosting previously. Clicking the "Unhost" button in the dashboard does not stop it, even though it says "unhosted" or whatever.
The bugs continue until I refresh the pages. Then the Stream Manager suddenly wakes up and recognises that I'm live, and the channel page starts actually showing my stream to people.
This is one of the many ways in which streaming on Twitch has become increasingly difficult in the last few months, and I fully expect Twitch, most specifically the management of the frontend Web development teams, to step up and fix it.
