Splitting this off into a separate bug from the original notifications work for desktop parity because the first part is done, and I haven't been able to finish adding mute notifications for both a running/dead fennec.

Jeff, I haven't been following the push work closely. What's the priority of implementing a "Mute" button in system notification on mobile? Does Chrome do this?

This is turning out to be tricky to implement, so I want to know how important it is for us to invest more time in figuring out a solution.

Chrome seems to have the ability to control notifications on a per-site basis. Android also has the ability to have quiet hours / DND' - between those two I suspect the user has enough control assuming they're interested in digging around a bit.

Do you have any UR on this?

Anthony, can you recap how we got to the current design proposal?

Learning from Chrome's UX, we had this button as "Edit Site Setting" before. But, given our current "Edit Site Settings" dialog UX, I thought it made more sense to pull out that mute ability to this level. 

Having said that, I don't think it makes sense for to give users the ability to mute ALL notifications from Firefox - that's a bit harsh. But, I do think it makes sense on a per-site basis.

If it's getting to be difficult to implement the per-site basis approach, we could punt on this for now. I think that's OK for the time being.

I think it's necessary to provide users control over notifications, per-site. I think if notifications become annoying and users can opt-out in chrome but not in Firefox, they'll just uninstall Firefox from the phone.
