Agreed! One of the most important reasons I need this is that sometimes I won't be able to open the website immediately, and want to check on it later on. The Windows Notification Center support this feature, it would be great if Firefox could implement its notification with Windows.
Besides, Windows notifications respect the Focus Assist feature that mute all notifications for a desired period, while Firefox's does not. Can you imagine having reddit and youtube notifications popping out when having an online exam? And it is highly possible to accidentally click on one of them, leading to the exam website's judgement as "Cheating", which is a loss I can't afford.
As far as I'm concerned Firefox is always a pioneer in adopting now Windows features such as the rounded window corner, fluent scrollbar and etc. They are awesome, and Notification is a part yet to be improved!
If you are willing to go into Firefox's internal settings you can try the native dialog by going to about:confg and setting alerts.useSystemBackend to true.
This workaround just shows the notification in notifications panel, but it still doesn't stay there when I open the notif panel!
Just make it right for God's sake and don't bother us with useless workarounds!!!
It's a Windows setting... you have to go to Notifications and Actions -> Firefox -> enable Show notifications in action center
This idea was shared with our internal teams, and we're happy to report that it's being worked on.
Stay tuned for updates and keep on sharing your ideas 😃

Yes, great news!
On Windows 10 with the pref it has been working as expected.
@user78335By default It is enabled in actions when Firefox is installed, but that doesn't show notifications in windows native format and there is no need to enable it manually.
For many user it is preferred to use the native windows notification center for the customization, timers, history, better UI, etc.
This idea is similar to the following and I provided what I do currently to kind of work around this... making the notification last forever:
Honestly though would be great to be able to enhance the notification management system since the windows native format doesn't even work for me when I enable it. We are living in a web app environment nowdays and not having this is a huge miss.
Here with a quick update that we're aiming for this to be delivered in Firefox 111. Feel free to track the work here and stay tuned for updates.
