    Returns a reference to the NativeWindow.toast object, which can be used to display toast notifications on Firefox for Android.

    A toast notification is a message that appears on the screen for a set interval and then fades away. It does not accept user input.

    You can display a toast using, supplying:

    • the message to display
    • a duration parameter that controls how long the toast should be displayed. This takes one of two values: short or long.


    In the example below, an add-on adds a menu item that displays a toast:NativeWindow-toast.png

    function showToast(window) {"Showing you a toast", "short");  
    var menuID;  
    function addMenuItem(window) {  
      menuID ="Show Toast", null, function(){  
    function removeMenuItem(window) {;
