While getting bug 1409761 QA verified we noticed that push notifications don't appear when firefox is not running.  In my day to day use, I do sometimes get push notifications without FF running, but its hard for me to tell how many I might miss.

It would be nice if we had some way to verify the reliability of push-while-not-running.

I have some issues with push notifications which may be the same issue.

If I solely run a PWA, I do not get ANY push notifications. However, if I additionally open a (regular) firefox instance, I receive push notifications without any problems.
Sadly, firefox disappears from the list of active apps after a while and therefore I do not get push notifications until I reopen ff again.
Therefore I thought it is related to bug 1513938 - but although the mention bug is fixed, this issue is still present in ff67.
