I have just setup WhatsApp web add-on to Thunderbird, when I noticed that if I tried to enable desktop notifications, it wouldn't work.  So I looked at the GitLab page for the add-on and saw that Thunderbird does not have a prompt to allow Desktop notifications.

It states that  there is a setting to automatically allow desktop notifications for everything, meaning that I would get notifications for WhatsApp, but I would get notifications for any other website I visit on Thunderbird, which isn't ideal.

I think it would be a good idea to add this prompt into Thunderbird so as to allow add-ons like this to send desktop notifications.

This could be useful to anyone who wants to use Proton Mail (without premium subscription), ClickUp, Todoist or any other website which wants to notify the user about some changes. I hope it will be implemented ASAP. 😉

Same problem for me, I added Mattermost and Slack web tabs to Thunderbird and I would like to receive notifications for new messages.

In the meantime, I would be interested to know if anyone found a workaround.

Me too, no Slack notifications. No solution so far?

Still waiting for this. Need notification from Google Chat tab.

This would be a game changer.

Would be a superb complement to the Open Google Voice add-on.
