Notifications are annoying when typing in the upper right corner of a window


Hi all,

sorry if this problem has already been brought up. I noticed that the
new notifications (but also whatever kind of notification you may think
of)  are extremely annoying when typing. My use case is: an open chat
window, and a full screen firefox. Typical for me. Pidgin issues
notifications for new messages because the window is hidden, and that's
very nice, but: I alt+tab to firefox, type F6, type tab, and get focus
to the web search field. Then start typing, a notification arrives and I
have to wait because I can't see the typed text. 

I do not know if there is a way to know if a certain area of the screen
has the input focus but this is a real usability problem for me.


It is also important to note that hedgehogs do not actually hurt each 
other when they get close to one another. Actually, when living in 
groups, hedgehogs often sleep close to each other.
