Regression of v8.5.0, still found in v8.5.3 tracking write protection
When a write protected file is opened and the write protection is removed, notepad++ still shows that the file is write protected and editing is not possible. Write protection has to be manually removed using the corresponding menu before the file can be edited and re-written.
Background: We use SVN for managing our source codes an when a file shall be edited, it has to be locked using a context menu from a plugin of notepad++. When the file is locked, the write protection is cleared. Notepad++ fails to track this change correctly.
This happens only for the first file being editing this way.
With v8.4.9 the behaviour is as exptected.
I opened an issue on github - sorry for posting here.

No worries. It is often good to post here first anyway; there may be a simple fix to your problem that the user community can point you to.
