Rich Notifications doesn't work/show

  • Hello to all. I have a cross browser extension and it seems that Opera is the only browser which doesn't display my rich notifications. Is there a special permission or something in order to make it work?


    "permissions": [




    function showNotification() {

    var notificationOptions = {
    	type: 'basic',
    	title: 'My title',
    	message: 'My message',
    	iconUrl: 'img/my_image.png',
    	contextMessage: 'My context message',
    	isClickable: true
    var notificationID = String(;
    chrome.notifications.create(notificationID, notificationOptions);


    ****** When I pressed "Post discussion" there was no indication of success or error so I pressed it again which caused double post.

  • In Opera there is no support for Rich Notification API

  • I would want to have option in setting to either see notifications on desktop/action center OR inside the browser. I would much better prefer inside browser. Now I don't use notifications with Opera at all.
