No Notifications on Firefox & Chrome

Hi,

I use mattermost-docker as server (tag 5.21) and Firefox & Chrome as client, but i can not get browser notifications. I haven’t configured SSL.
Do browser notifications only work with SSL?

Do you see any Mattermost log errors or developer console errors?

Hey, Yes browsers allow notifications from trusted sources only so you need to enable SSL to get them working. It is preferred to have SSL enabled.

If that is something you cannot enable then, You have to search for possible workarounds/hacks like https://stackoverflow.com/a/60578564/2902013 on clients to enable them but that means you have to do it for all your users.
