Badge "number of unread new mails" and progress bar not shown in Ubuntu 17
.10 Dock for Thunderbird / Firefox Next (ppa)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0 Build ID: 20171103090157 Steps to reproduce: I installed Ubuntu 17.10 and the ppa from Mozilla team : https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/thunderbird-next https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/firefox-next Actual results: When using the ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-next and Thunderbird 56.0~b4, on the icon dock it never shows the circle with number of new unread mails, even when new mails arrived. Same, the progress bar is not visible when downloading a large file on Firefox 57.0~b12 from ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next Bug reported also for Ubuntu Dock Gnome Shell extension : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock/+bug/1728522 Expected results: As when using default Ubuntu Artful installation and Thunderbird, we should normally see an orange circle icon with number (in white) of new mails received when Thunderbird is not the active window. https://didrocks.fr/2017/09/25/ubuntu-gnome-shell-in-artful-day-14/
I don't know why Gnome Shell Ubuntu Dock does not "recognize" application, as their package names (firefox and thunderbird) are the same as those on default Ubuntu installation... Or extension / needed API are not active in the ppa packages ? Thanks in advance for your help.
Perhaps a distro build issue. Did your, or they, use ac_add_options "MOZ_ALLOW_LEGACY_EXTENSIONS=1" or "export MOZ_ALLOW_LEGACY_EXTENSIONS=1" If not, they need to.

I have asked on French Ubuntu forum, where a developer is present. I forgot to precise (but it is shown on the screenshot) that both Thunderbird (56) badge for unread mails and Firefox (57) progress bar, even for the ppa versions, work well on Unity (Ubuntu 17.04)

Hi, link of the post (I write there as the Launchpad bug has been marked "invalid" because related to a ppa and not official Ubuntu packages) : http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=21823419#p21823419
Since update 57.0b1, I don't see any more "number of unread mails" on Thunderbird icon on Unity dock (17.04), too (Messaging menu and Unity launcher integration is still activated)...
