Desktop notifications not working

I recently installed Firefox on a new WIndows 8 PC and have noticed that desktop notifications for my addons aren't working. The two addons in question are Gmail notifier (restartless) [firefox.add0n.com/gmail-notifier.html] and Twitch.tv Stream Browser https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?src=api. I don't think this is an addon-specific issue, though, as both addons use the same type of notification and when it's supposed to show up, nothing happens. Desktop notifications work perfectly on my Windows 7 PC and I can't exactly use Safe Mode to test because that'll disable my addons. Is there anything that could be affecting this? Thanks in advance.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All of them.


Have you checked the options of the add-ons ?

Thank you for your response. I did actually disable all of my addons and then tried just enabling the gmail checker, and unfortunately, nothing changed. However, after I re-enabled all of my addons and restarted Firefox a few times, the notifications suddenly started working. I'm not sure how exactly that happened, but it seems to be working perfectly now. Thanks again.
