Bug introduced in 10.0 and fixed in 11.0.0

Mathematica version: 10.2

Monitor[i = 0; While[i < 100, Pause[0.1]; i++]; i, i]

The above code is from the documentation of Monitor. On my computer, there is no continious change of values showing. What is wrong?

Update: It turns out that this problem only appears in the documentation page. Still not knowing why.

Similar behavior here

    $\begingroup$ @I_Mariusz I tried again and found odd things. You're right, copy the code into a new notebook, works fine. But if you directly shift+Enter in the documentation page, it doesn't work. Hope that you can try and confirm. $\endgroup$
