Just like any other web browsers, Mozilla Firefox has support for push notifications built in. Windows 10 has a notification system called Action Center, but Firefox doesn’t utilize it. It appears that we can soon expect to see Firefox notifications delivered through Windows 10 Action Center.
Mozilla has confirmed that the company is bringing Windows 10 native notification support to Firefox.
According to a post on Mozilla’s Bugzilla, the support for native notification will be added in Firefox 64 and it’s already available in the latest nightly build of Firefox.
By the looks of things, Mozilla is gradually rolling out the Windows 10 Action Center support in latest nightly builds of Firefox. The feature will be enabled soon if you’re not seeing notifications via Action Center.
This feature has been requested by Firefox users ever since Windows 10 was released and it’s finally coming after a long delay. It’s important to note that the Firefox won’t deliver the notifications through its built-in system anymore as it doesn’t make sense to have notifications coming through both the built-in Firefox system and Windows 10 Action Center.
There’s no way to disable the Windows 10 native notification support in Nightly builds, at least for now.
This change makes sense for a couple of reasons. For example, the Firefox notifications are now also supported by Windows 10’s Focus Assist. That means you can now delay the notifications sent through Firefox when you’re running a game or in a do-not-disturb mode.
You can now also disable the Firefox notifications from Windows 10’s built-in Settings page.
Mozilla recently released Firefox 62.0.3 for Windows with important fixes for vulnerabilities in the browser. Firefox 62.0.3 addresses security flaws in the browser and you’re recommended to install the update as soon as possible.
Mozilla is committed to native Windows 10 APIs as the company recently updated the Firefox Nightly browser with support for Windows 10’s dark mode.
