Rated 4 out of 5
It does what it is supposed to. I was using it for Hotmail notifications. Unfortunately, on June 5, 2015 Microsoft did a major update of outlook.live.com. Tab titles no longer change when you have an unread email. Therefore Tab Notifier no longer works for Hotmail., Live.com., Outlook.com. I was also use X-notifier. Microsoft's changes to the website broke that too. It looks like I am out of luck for the time being and will have to check for new emails the old fashioned way, by going to my inbox.

For example, a mail website. The title bar might say "5 unread", but once I read one email, the title changes to "4 unread" at which point I get a notification on my desktop. I want the ability to either not show that via settings or as a permanent change.
- by Firefox user 13720255, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5This comes so close to being a 5 star useful extension, but the notifications aren't persistent, so if you aren't sitting there and watching the second it pops up, you will miss it. :-( I would be happy to help make the update to this (I'm guess setting "requireInteraction" to True would do it) but I'm not able to find the source anywhere. I tried contacting the author but the web site listed returns an error. If it would be possible to make this update, I would enthusiastically update my review to 5 stars.
