Bug #1203

HTML5 Notifications are always denied

Added by Doug Reeder almost 3 years ago. Updated 6 months ago.

Target version:Later


To reproduce:
1. On N4 or TP, run Testr
2. Select Notifications tab
3. Under "HTML 5 Non-persistent notifications", tap any button.

Actual result: In output area below: "Notification.permission: denied" and notification is not displayed

Expected result: System dialog is displayed, allowing user to allow or deny the origin permission to display notifications

This also affects web pages - they are always denied permission as well. See

Given that (for now) all packaged apps have the same origin, a temporary workaround would be to allow all origins permission to display notifications.
