Notification not shown in Edge

Reported by: Ross Assignee:
Priority: Unknown Milestone:
Module: Platform Keywords: closed-in-favor-of-gitlab
Cc: sebastian, oleksandr, geo Blocked By:
Blocking: Platform: Edge
Ready: no Confidential: no
Tester: Unknown Verified working: no
Review URL(s):



Edge 40 / Windows 10

How to reproduce

  1. Setup Fiddler (or other proxy) to intercept requests from Edge.
  2. Setup Fiddler/proxy to respond to with the test json below.
  3. Install ABP Edge build.
  4. Wait for notification request from extension.

Observed behaviour

Edge receives the notification but appears to do nothing with it.

Expected behaviour

The same notification.json sent to ABP Chrome (with target as adblockpluschrome) shows a "Test" notification as expected.

Example json

{ \"notifications\": [ { \"targets\": [{ \"extension\": \"adblockplusedge\" }], \"id\": \"1\", \"message\": { \"en-US\": \"Test\" }, \"severity\": \"normal\", \"title\": { \"en-US\": \"Test\" } } ], \"version\": \"201707281538\" }

To get Fiddler to respond add the following to OnBeforeResponse in Rules > Customize Rules:

if( oSession.PathAndQuery.Contains("notification.json"))

var res = "escapedjsonstringhere";

I'm not sure what the original issue was, but currently, the notifications API is still broken on Edge, so only popup notifications will be displayed.

One thing, for the default type, the title and message are missing on Edge.
