First make sure you are logged-in into all your accounts and they are all accessible through account 1 (/mail/u/0/), account 2 (/mail/u/1/) and so forth. Now open Gmail Notifier's Option page and make sure in the "Feeds" section all accounts have label "inbox" in their boxes.
- How to adjust Gmail Notifer to get label-specific notifications?
To get notification for a specific label other than 'inbox', open the settings page, and add the 'label-name' to get notification of in the 'feeds' section
- Is it possible to disable specific accounts from receiving notifications?
Yes, in the settings page, remove label "inbox" for that particular account.
- Is it possible to get notification for a specific category (Primary, Promotions, Social, Updates, and Forums)?
Yes, you can watch these specific categories by adding one or more of these labels in the "feeds" section. ^smartlabel_personal, ^smartlabel_newsletter, ^smartlabel_promo, ^smartlabel_notification, ^smartlabel_group. Optionally remove label "inbox" to only get notifications of the categories.
Note: these labels are not limited to your inbox, hence you will get notification for unread emails in the category even if they are not in your inbox
- Toolbar button suddenly disappeared from my Firefox browser and the extension doesn't work anymore. How can I fix this?
If you cannot see the toolbar button anymore, most likely the extension has not been initiated properly due to a conflict with another extension or damage in your current Firefox profile. The easiest way to fix this is to install the extension on a clean profile as instructed here. Note that the new profile neither has your installed extension, nor your stored bookmarks, passwords, or any other personal settings. However, it is easy to migrate them into the new profile. Just follow the sync instruction here.
- How to get notifications from Google Calendar?
It is possible to get notifications from your Google Calendar right from this extension. To do so, you need to configure Google Calendar to send you email reminders. Then you need to configure your Gmail to filter those messages in a defined label (also select skip inbox option to prevent inbox cluttering). Now set Gmail notifier to track that specific label (read FAQ ).
- Gmail notifier only monitors first 5 accounts by default. How to extend this?
The instruction is available here.
- I cannot disable sound notification in Mac OS?
From Firefox 28.0, Firefox notifications are handled by Mac Notification Center which causes an extra notification sound. If you dont want to get any notification sound at all you need to uncheck "Play alert sound for new emails" from Gmail Notifier settings as well as sound notification for Firefox from the Notification Center (check image below).

- I have too many emails in my account and I am not willing to delete them. By default the notifier badge number is the total number of all unread emails which in my case is a big number! Is there anyway to request notification for only the recent emails (say emails of the last two days)?
Yes, the instruction is available here
- How to have more than one toolbar buttons so that each notifier can be configured for separate account (such as different alert sound or different toolbar counter)?
To do so you need to hack into the code! The instruction is provided here.
