New FF notifications

I'm not sure I got everything right, but seems like FF enabled a new notifications feature[1] and it broke the previous behaviour for KDE.
Now all the notifications are displayed with something different from the plasma functions (screenshot attached).

Go here[2] and press the "Notify me!" button. My result is on the screenshot and it seems very similar to all another FF notifications for now.
It's different from the plasma popups as displayed by "kdialog --passivepopup text" or "notify-send subj text".

All of that worked fine previously (plasma was used). I'm not sure for the exact version, but it may be FF 21 or 20.

Thunderbird has the same, so it might be a subject to reassign to another component.

Comment 2 Andrew Travneff 2014-04-21 04:28:20 EDT
FF28 still has it. Popup history (like plasma tray icon) is unavailable in this case—you easily miss some notifications.
Comment 3 Andrew Travneff 2014-07-18 07:52:44 EDT
Still actual for firefox-30.0-4.fc20.x86_64
Just in case, thunderbird-24.6.0-1.fc20.x86_64 is OK with that.
Both shoud use xulrunner-30.0-1.fc20.x86_64

Fixed in firefox-31.0-2.fc20.x86_64

I have F20, so tested just firefox-33.0-2.fc20.x86_64 (did nothing with xulrunner: 32.0-1.fc20.x86_64 installed). It does not have the subject issue and uses Plasma notifications as desired.

Okay, Thanks for the info.
