I'm still having issues with confirmed Wanted States removed from my alert list.

I have the Rebuild Database -> LOTW box selected, but continue to see states that I've worked, and LoTW showing no longer needed (confirmed?), highlighted in yellow in the Decode Window. 

For example, LoTW shows that I need six states for FT8; JTAlert still has tens of states checked as needed. 

I'm currently using Log4OM2 (set up in JTALERT settings), which is working well with the radio, as well as WSJT-X and JTALERT. When I close Log4OM2, new QSOs are successfully uploaded to LoTW automatically (I suppose that it downloads new confirmations from LoTW at the same time). Is JTALERT supposed to use these newly-downloaded confirmations on Log4OM2 to turn off the appropriate state alerts?

Lastly, I ran Rebuild Database to see if that was the missing piece - it had the opposite effect, the number of needed states increased. It looks like I'll have to manually uncheck the needed states, by band and mode... need some help, please!

Log4OM2 does not automatically download from LOTW. You have to do that in QSL Manager. If you have not done a manual download, then those QSOs will still show as not confirmed. Do a manual download, and then do a Rebuild Database. That should work for you.
