Steps to reproduce:

If you deny permissions the site is popping up a fake doorhanger that looks like the chrome UX.

I have another offender. Please: 

- should I use this bug to record current and future examples?
Let's see what Ehsan says.  This is a variant of page popups which he was working on tracking.

Ah, thank you 
… um, that was an incomplete thank you (Bugzilla silently discarded a thumbs-up U+1F44D and all text that followed). 

The penny drops, 

I have the same setting turned on in my browser (I also hate these annoying push notification prompts!) and neither the site in comment 0 not the sites in comment 4 trigger anything for me.

I also didn't see an in-page version of those dialogs, although I think I've seen them before on some other websites.  We currently aren't planning to work on those specific types of pop-ups, since we don't have a ton of examples of those in our dataset, but if you have examples please report them using  Thanks!

To clarify, please: is this bug for cases where 
permissions.default.desktop-notification set to 2 is 
_not_ effective?

I got what appeared to be a notification request at but it's not returning when I reload the page. I have installed in-page-popup-reporter and will use it if I can manage to reproduce the problem.

I have permissions.default.desktop-notification set to 2
