I am not receiving notifications on Firefox when gmail tab is closed.
On Chrome, if I close my gmail tab, I still receive notifications for new emails. On Firefox, I'm not receiving any notification.s I am using MacOS Catalina and Firefox 85.0b3 (64-bit). I checked the OSX System Preferences and Firefox is allowed to send out notifications. Any ideas on how to fix this?
In the Gmail website settings, you need to click the Click here to enable desktop notifications for Gmail link in the Desktop notifications section to enable Gmail to send notifications to Firefox. That will open a popup to allow notifications from the website.
You can check if notifications are enabled for Gmail by viewing the Firefox settings page and going to the Privacy & Security page. When you scroll down to Permissions, you will see a Settings button next to the Notifications option. If you've correctly enabled notifications from Gmail, you should see Gmail on the list of allowed websites.
If Gmail is already listed as allowed, click on the website and press the Remove website button. Then restart Firefox and enable notifications for Gmail again.
See Web Push notifications in Firefox for more information.
