As of today Windows Native Notifications are riding the trains as enabled by default!
Riding trains for Fx111.How it works:
Notifications for Windows may outlive the instance of Firefox which created them. To handle this we have added a notification COM server (implemented as a standalone surrogate COM server) which ensures Firefox is running via the remote protocol. For Windows 8(.1) the behavior falls back to in-memory callbacks; notifications persisting in an action center and their COM server entry points being a Windows 10+ concept.
Prefs now defaulted on are `alerts.useSystemBackend` and `alerts.useSystemBackend.windows.notificationserver.enabled`
