For some reason, Thunderbird's new mail notifications are no longer appearing at the top right of my screen. I hear the pop sound of new messages, and Unity's Thunderbird icon receives a red number indicating the number of new messages.

But no Ubuntu notifications at all.

This seems to have happened after my latest series of updates.

Other notifications are working, however.

  • Which Thunderbird Addons are installed? – Jakob Feb 20 '12 at 9:05

    Did you check settings? Edit → Preferences → General → Show an alert - maybe it changed for some reason? i.stack.imgur.com/elMNo.png – Jakob Feb 20 '12 at 10:09
  • I did check, yes, and it was checked. – Gonzoza Feb 20 '12 at 11:38
  • My guess is that it's a conflict with an extension. – Gonzoza Feb 20 '12 at 15:38

There was some package in earlier 10.10 that made mozzila notifications show up in ubuntu. But when I upgraded it was amongst the removed and unsupported ones.

Sadly, I don't remember the name now.

EDIT: Thunderbird identificator is not compatible with thunderbird 10.02
