This is called "pouncing," and is not something Fire currently supports.
There is a feature request on it, though:
GAIM and some other clients support this; I agree that it would be nice
if Fire did as well.

This is something we have looked at adding several times.
Unfortunately, it's not a simple proposition. Especially for an app the

be ignored forever. Perhaps at some point someone with experience will
offer to add it. In the meantime, you can keep up with what's going on
with respect to this feature by following this feature request:
