Firefox testing support for native Windows 10 notifications

Firefox is gearing up to embrace Windows 10's native notifications with an upcoming update. Mozilla has updated its Bugzilla bug tracker (via Windows Latest, Techdows) to note that it is now targeting support for the native notification scheme in Firefox 64.

The feature is already in testing with Firefox Nightly, a pre-release version of the browser that Mozilla uses to test out changes before pushing them out to everyone. Once available, any push notifications sent through Firefox will live in your Windows 10 Action Center. The notifications will also respect any custom Windows 10 settings you have, including Focus Assist and any priorities you've set.

The move comes roughly two months after Chrome began rolling out support for native Windows 10 notifications. It will also address a longstanding request among Firefox users; the bug tracker entry is now four years old.
