Firefox Web Notifications are interrupting typing

more options

I just recently had Firefox updated, and I'm already having problems regarding notifications. When a notification starts up while I'm typing, it takes me out of it and I have to click back in. I had to turn them off temporarily to avoid flow breaking. This never ever happened before the update as the notifs worked perfectly fine w/ no interrupting. I also noticed in the taskbar, each notification is treated like a new browser window for some reason. This may be related to my current issue.

Hopefully having Firefox send the notifications to the system has solved the problem for now.

There is a bug related to the new windows that will be fixed in Firefox 124: 1878037 - Notifications steal focus and show up in the task bar.

Change alerts.useSystemBackend back to default true in about:config then restart the browser.
