Similar question to bug 1291677: Is this expected to work as described? I found that VoiceOver will focus the "Get Firefox" button and read it properly. This matches other notification bars on Mac.

Please see comment https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1291677#c2

The VoiceOver does not read the bar, only the button. This behaviour is similar with the Adobe pop-up bar. Comparing to Windows it seems to me that this is a bug as well (Generic?)
Flags: needinfo?(ovidiu.boca)
This difference between platforms doesn't surprise me, but this bug may have been filed before as a generic bug and it would be nice to read the discussion why this is either intentional, or why this hasn't been fixed yet.

If you could run a quick search and see if there's such a bug, that would be great. Otherwise, please file a new, generic platform bug. But we should go ahead and close this bug as this is not specific to our system addon. Thank you!
