Get native Ubuntu notifications working again in Firefox 3.6.6

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Popular Firefox extension ‘Firefox-Notify’ – which uses native Ubuntu notifications in place of the default Firefox ones – no longer works with Firefox 3.6.6 in Ubuntu. Thankfully users  needn’t forgo native notifications for long…

It’s little known but a handy notification extension is already sat in the Ubuntu repositories for you to install – and it works with Firefox 3.6.6.

Open a terminal and enter: –
sudo apt-get install xul-ext-notify 

Voilà – working notifications.
