How to configure Chrome and Firefox web push notifications

Get the Firebase API key and Sender ID

1. Open your Firebase Console and choose the project you created during the integration stage.

2. Go to Your Project > Project settings.

4. For Firebase projects created later than October 22, 2019, you should generate the Web Push certificate key pair. Scroll the page down to the Web configuration section and press Generate key pair.

Copy the generated key pair to clipboard.

Please note that Firefox pushes require https websites; Firefox pushes will not work with self-signed certificates (https/ssl). Use an SSL certificate signed by trusted Authority.

Push notifications don't work in "Private" mode.

To configure Chrome or Firefox platform, select the app you want to send pushes to and click Configure for Chrome or Firefox.

Input the following Firebase Cloud Messaging project credentials:

  • Server Key

  • Sender ID

  • Web Push certificate key pair (for Firebase projects created later than October 22, 2019)

Make sure to integrate the Web Push SDK 3.0 into your Chrome project.
