Add-On To Make Firefox Use Jaunty’s Notifications

This Firefox add-on allows Firefox to display it’s notifications via Jaunty’s new notification system.

Currently Firefox uses it’s own notification pop ups to tell you that something has finished downloading but you can get it to use your sexy new Jaunty notifications by installing a plug-in.

Namely this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9622

This solves one part of the notification problem: it will use Jaunty notifications, but also still show it’s native Firefox pop-up notification, too. Wanna fix that too?

  • Type about:config into Firefox’s address bar.
  • Agree to any alert.
  • Search for the following preference: -
  • browser.download.manager.showAlertOnComplete.
  • Set the value to false.

Restart and Firefox will solely use Jaunty notifications!
