- by Al, 6 years agoRated 5 out of 5A fantastic add-on that provides exactly what I need. No need to install additional notifier add-ons that require you to log in etc. This capability should be IN the browser as we move to doing more through browsers. Almost like a Growl/Snarl system for browser tabs.
Excellent thinking and great job. Well done and many thanks!
- by Tim, 7 years agoRated 4 out of 5With a little more polish, this would be an absolute must-have extension.
The biggest improvement would be to automatically dismiss the notification after the "filter on title" expression disappears for whatever reason. One example would be Facebook's messenger web interface. I set a regular expression "messaged you". I am aware the title switches back and forth, but once the message is read on e.g. mobile device, the title no longer says "messaged you", but the notification stays.
I really hope this extension isn't abandoned, as it has a lot of potential... last update June 10, 2013
- by Akrucious, 7 years agoRated 2 out of 5This is a wonderful feature to Firefox. I would use it if I could change the color scheme of the notification background/text/etc. As of right now I'm on Linux with very dark themed everything so that staring at my computer for hours on end is easier on the eyes. Because of this the white text on white background doesn't work well.
- by bwProductions, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Excellent work, but one tiny nitpick: In English, the first letter of every word is typically capitalized in a title. Consider changing the name of your add-on from "Tab notifier" to "Tab Notifier". Beyond that, can we get Snarl/Growl for Windows support?
- by xss2xhr8mybaby, 8 years agoRated 1 out of 5I see what's going on. That's cool-- if i could figure out, w/out reading a manual [as in most Moz add-on’s tend to be: intuitively operational], I'd give it a good rating. Presently, i'm disabling it. In other words, i don't believe it will be much use to me, so i shall not use it, until i have the necessary time to research the proper configuration. TIME-CONSUMER: ugh! I've got enough of those in my world.The idea is: it works out of the box, but if you receive more notifications that you want you need to configure it. A more constructive review would be "I was trying to do _this_ but I found it hard". I guess you find it "time-consuming" to write a review as well, but I assure you I needed more time to write the extension ;)
- by dabruro, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5I didn't think it would work for a web-based custom chat client developed internally in my company, but it did! I think this is a better solution than Tab Badge because you don't have to have tabs or windows open or visible in order to be notified.
- by Sunil Kulkarni, 8 years agoRated 3 out of 5Hello,
Is there any workaround to make it work for every email which comes to the mailbox? This does not work as expected if the subject of the email is same..!!
- by Firefox user 6140188, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Very well done, works flawlessly!Extremely useful while firefox still does not have native Notifications API support.
The only suggestion I'd make is to emphasise a bit more that configuration for individual sites is via a right-click context menu when viewing that particular site.
- by Kishan, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5Hi, As you right on my blog, I test your Addon, and I really like it, but one thing that I missed too much that there is no option to auto hide notification after xx seconds. I have to click on notification to remove it, there should be option to choose what type of notifications should auto close or removed after certain time. I hope you understand it, and try to add it in your next update... waiting for it.Thanks for the review. I hope to reply also to others that made similar remarks. Currently the autoclosing feature is available only for title-notifications, not for desktop-notifications, because in the latter case the website is consciously showing the notification and normally it deals with the closing too. The auto-closing in this case would be a hack that may clash with the logic under the use of notifications (for this reason, when I introduce this option, it has to be on a per-domain base) Nevertheless there is a bug that affects Gmail. UPDATE: the issue is solved with the ver. 2.11: now email notifications are automatically closed (chat notifications are not, I know you may expect the opposite but that's the way it works in Chrome too) and it keeps working with the following emails.
- by Gil Kedar, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5works great, using it with gmail, imo and facebook. proved to be a bit annoying when opening multiple tabs of facebook, but this regular expression fixes it:
^(\([0-9]+\) Facebook)|([a-zA-Z0-9\-\.]+ messaged you)Thanks for the contribution, pretty useful to avoid the "blinking" of the message, but I tried it and it still shows a notification per tab. I guess the next improvement should be to add a per-domain option to avoid more than one title-notification per domain, or something like that. However, I would insert this and similar suggested regular expressions in the default configuration of the next version, if it wasn't for the problem of different localizations of the websites. So we may just collect tips like this in a space of the support pages.
- by Max Grass, 8 years agoRated 3 out of 51. Cool & Useful! Thank you!
2. Design - bad. No Dual Monitor Support > Firefox window is on Monitor-2, Notification appear on Monitor-1.1. Thanks for the support :)
2. The version 2.1 supports dual monitors. It lets you choose the monitor where the notifications appear (so please consider to change your rating), but if you mean that notifications should be on the same monitor where the Firefox window is, I totally disagree.
- by Pedro Albuquerque Santos, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5A must have...
I thought that "HTML Desktop Notifications" addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/html-notifications/) was handy but this takes it to a higher level of polishment.
I really hope that Mozilla adds native support for this soon.
- by 白左, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5Different alert box will cover each other, this should be fixed.
Lesser important notify, say, twitter or something, should disappeared after xxx milliseconds
Important notify should remains until close manually, if possible you can mark them with different (customizable) color
(my twitter app tab and Google reader keep popping and cover others, quiet annoying, while I still want to see the notify)
Close button should be easier to click, bigger one will be better
Developer responseposted 9 years agoFair remarks. In fact among the new features of the ver. 1.1 you find auto-closing of the notifications customizable on a domain basis; in the next ver. I'll make the notifications nicer and with more accessible buttons and when I find the time I'd like to make them also "stackable", so that when there are more than one of them they will be all visible.
UPDATE 28/03/12: notifications vertically stacked has been introduced by the version 1.3
