I've seen this:

Notification image

As you can see Firefox is using the Ubuntu notification to notify the user.

How to do that?

I just want to get notifications for anything in general: for example, if a download is completed...

Firefox version 26.0

  • You don't already get these notifications? Do you get notifications for anything? – Seth Jan 28 '14 at 5:50
  • At least for download is finished YES – Maythux Jan 28 '14 at 5:56

Install the GNotifier addon to get firefox notifications to integrate with the current desktop you are using, either unity, gnome-shell, kde or xfce.



Ok found it:

GNotifier is a Firefox extension that makes the browser use native notifications on the Linux desktop. The extension currently supports GNOME (Shell), Unity, KDE and Xfce.

Besides regular notifications, like the one displayed when a file is downloaded, the extension also supports the standard webkitNotification API (for instance, receiving notifications on new emails in Gmail)
