I've tweaked the record size setting again based on another bug report I found on-line. Can you try mobile Firefox again? 

Thanks,

In Mac system preferences --> notifications, I have all of the following checked for FF:

Show notifications on lock screen

Show in Notification Center: 5 Recent Items

Badge app icon

Play sound for notifications

Oh, you mean from the Mac. I'll look there again.

Also, on the Notifications settings page itself, I see this:
"The following websites have requested to send you notifications."
[Note: it is blank - there are none, but you could disallow any that are listed]

And at the bottom there's a checkbox (which is unchecked)
"Block new requests asking to allow notifications."

So, as the saying goes, "Something's not right."

I had that problem yesterday when I played with this a bit.  It was because of a setting in FF on the Privacy & Security page, under Permissions, Notifications.  Could that be set to "Block new requests"?
Hi Duane,

that navigation sequence appears to be for the desktop version of FF. I get notifications with that, it's the mobile version that I cannot get notifications on.

I found Notifications help in FF and it looks really complicated. Haven't read it yet, but here's the link, in case it sheds any light on this for anyone else. Will read it later tonite

I already disabled DoNotDisturb (bummer), to no avail. I haven’t been able to find anything in FF to explicitly enable notifications - just ways to turn them off. I’ll search again.

this is a bit tricky, at least it was for me. I had to allow notifications from Firefox in the control panel / notification settings, and I also had to disable my „do not disturb“ setting which is currently active, to make the notifications appear. After that, notifications on the Mac now also work in Firefox for me.
Kind regards
Thomas

Hi,
Addition to my previous message:
Notifications work for me in Firefox as well, FF 70.0.1 in windows 10 1803 (yes, both a bit old, I agree).
I upgraded FF to 77.0.1 and it’s also working in this version.

Still no notifications via FF on my mobile even though my account status showed the were active for Windows FF and Android FF. I've now gone through the following steps:

1- Disable notifications on all devices (from my laptop)
2- Re-enabled notifications on my laptop
3- Sent test notification from laptop - received OK
4- check notification status from FF mobile and see this:
<dummyfile.0.part>

Issues/Questions:

1- The Enable Notifications In This Browser button does nothing
2- The Send A Test Notification button does nothing
3- Unsure why there is an Enable and Disable button for In This Browser - shouldn't one button toggle the option?
4- Tried Disable Notifications In This Browser button and tapped Yes on the verify pop-up panel - no changes to screen information or button options
5 -Tried Disable Notifications On All Devices button and tapped Yes on the verify pop-up panel - Screen updated to remove Windows Firefox details and Disable Notifications On All Devices button removed also - confirmed change by checking notification status on laptop

It's clearly not happy!?

Andy

hi Mark,
just a confirmation - for me it works in Chrome (Windows 10 and Mac OS X Catalina), and in Edge on Windows 10. That's the "old" Edge I think, the version that comes with Windows 10 1909 as standard .
Kind regards
Thomas

No, no problem, I was actually glad you answered to see that we’re using the same version of FF. Why mine diesnt work is a mystery.

Unfortunately I currently don't have any ideas why notifications don't work in your Firefox. I have them working in mine.

Hi Mark,

if I send a test notification from Firefox on my laptop, I do not receive anything on Firefox on my mobile.


TIL Firefox mobile restricts the size of the notification payload. It should be fixed now. Hopefully.

Uh-oh. I didn't tell you my OS. It's the obsolete ol' El Capitan, the same one that got me into trouble with Safari. Could that be affecting this? I've been putting off updating as long as I could. Maybe will get a new PC soon anyway.
