I believe there was an update the came with 1.10.1 or 1.10.2 that fixed pulling to resolve this very issue.
Desktop Notifications "bug"
Not exactly a bug, but whenever I open by browser after booting up the laptop or pc and open NodeBB, I get this notification:
Is there anyway to turn this feature off, I mean this is not exactly a bad thing, asking the user for permission, but asking it every time you start your browser can be a problem. or else it would be better to store the user preference inside the browser cache which can prevent this question from being displayed always.
Show for this session means just that, it's enabled until you close the page, alternatively you can click the arrow to the right, and you can select the following options:
Never allow for this site
Always allow for this site
I have it turned on, but I'm not sure what it actually does anymore. I don't recall getting any notifications from it.
