Integrate with Firefox's 'native desktop notifications'
The extension "html5 notifications" sounds like a good idea, but it doesn't work in practice in Firefox Aurora. Native desktop notifications have now been implemented into Firefox Aurora (see URL below), allowing for the extension to be removed and replaced with the natively provided API:
I disabled the "html5 notification" extension and then used the JS test (provided in a link at comment 55, in the URL above). Works very well.
The "html5 notifications" extension used with Firefox Aurora 22.0a2 (2013-Apr-15) crops the notification and buttons - looking terrible and almost unusable. Perhaps it is compatibility with this version of Firefox. Either way, it would be good to have native notification support, now that it is out of a nightly build.

I found this suggestion through Google wondering why MightyText wouldn't support one of the world's most popular web browsers without an addon that has been discontinued for well over a year. This is downright pathetic. Thank you guys for the info about the userscript that fixes this and I am downright appalled that I have to fix something so simple by myself that should take mere minutes to test on your end.
I've created a UserScript that will fix this for Firefox users. Make sure you uninstall any HTML5 Notification add-on, then install the following script with Greasemonkey. It overrides some things to "trick" the MightyText app to use Firefox's window.Notification instead of Chrome's window.webkitNotifications

Native HTML5 notifications work fine. Please update your code, MightyText.
Status please? FF is currently v26, long since native HTML5 notifications.
Any word on this happening? The install info for Firefox still references html5notifications add-on
now that http://code.google.com/p/ff-html5notifications/ is discontinued and that firefox integrates html5 notifications, please update it to work on recent firefox versions …
