If notifications take up less than the 30em of vertical space allocated to them in the notifications panel, the panel should shrink to the height of the notifications instead of maintaining a fixed height, which covers up more of the underlying web page than necessary and places notifications farther away from the mouse's location on the notification icon. Unfortunately, I don't think we can do this declaratively (i.e. via CSS) because of bug 442164. At least, I haven't yet figured out a declarative workaround. But we could resize the panel after opening it based on the amount of vertical space the notifications take up.
Setting this apart for a future release.
