Notification Delay or Timeout

Unread post by suzyne » 2024-03-01, 00:33

Using 33.0.1 Win64 AX2

My webmail shows notifications in the bottom left corner. Great!

Image

I want to increase the amount of time the notification is shown, but I must be looking in the wrong area of the config because I increased this value to 20 with no change in behaviour. I also tried setting requireinteraction to true, but the notification still disappeared after 3~4 seconds.

Image

Is there a different setting I should use?

requireinteraction works for me, have you tried restarting the browser after changing it?

Thank you for the suggestion, but a restart had no effect. Currently my settings are:

Code: Select all

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.count = 20
dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled = true
and notifications from my Zoho webmail remove themselves after the same 3¬4 seconds. All I can think is that a web page is allowed to ignore those settings?

The reason I am interested in this, is that sometimes being on the other side of the room I hear the ping and when I get over to look at the screen, it's gone.

The "requireinteraction" prefs are not relevant to what you want to control.

Please check alerts.durationImmediate -- by default it should be set to 20000 (=20 seconds) but maybe you have a custom value there?

Thanks, I checked there, and this is what Pale Moon currently has.

I just tested this with https://mdn.github.io/dom-examples/to-do-notifications/ and it works correctly. the notification stays up for 20 seconds then closes.
Maybe you want more time, like a minute? set it to 60000 in that case.

I can confirm that the To Do example does work with alert staying visible for the 20 seconds! So what I did is increase the value to 60000 to see if a Zoho notification would be visible for three times the current 3~4 seconds. I set it to this, and restarted Pale Moon, just to be sure.

But the duration of the notification was unchanged! I then looked in the Zoho mail settings wondering if they have something that controls the time, but all I found is this.

With no sign of any time related options.

Generally, I have notifications turned off, but after the recent Pale Moon updates I started using the Zoho webmail because it now works so much better . So this is the first time I have been interested in notifications from pages in Pale Moon.

Anyways, even if it shouldn't be possible(?), I am satisfied with saying that Zoho Mail is doing something non-standard and leave it at that.
