Dashboard admin notices refresh the page

Some admin dashboard notifications refresh the current page when closed or dismissed. Given that they can be dismissed without refreshing the whole page, it would be better in my opinion if all notices were forced to not refresh the page when dismissed. It's slightly annoying not knowing if closing a notification will refresh the page nr ont :)

Hi @ruairimcnicholas,

Thanks for this ticket, and welcome to Trac!

Can you point out which notices are triggering a refresh?

I can add them here as I come across them?
WooCommerce Stripe Gateway does it for notices about changes to the Stripe gateway.
WooCommerce does it when I dismiss the notice it gives when you update a datbase for a new version of WooCommerce, and for outdated theme files; "Your theme (JupiterX) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files."

Those notices would need to be addressed by the plugin and theme authors respectively. Only instances in WordPress Core can be addressed here.

I'm going to close this out because these are not core notices, but if you find one from WordPress Core itself, feel free to reopen this with details so it can be looked at, @ruairimcnicholas
