The web push notifications are available to the Mozilla Firefox users for a while and many websites like Yahoo Web Mail make good use of this feature. Using web push notifications, websites can notify you even when you are not accessing their websites in your web browser – all you need is to launch your web browser. But for this to happen, usually you have to give permission to a website to send you notifications first. Once the permission is set, that website will send to notifications that will appear near the bottom-right corner of your screen.
When you are working on some important job or are busy binge watching online movies, and you do not want to receive any such notifications, then you can either pause the notifications until Firefox restarts or disable them for a particular website. For the latter case, you can simply click on the cogwheel icon on the notification itself and choose to “Disable notification for that website”. And you can also “Pause notifications until Firefox restarts” using the same method too.
But what if you do not want to be disturbed and want to pause the notifications even before they appear? For this, you will have to open the Firefox settings and make changes like this:
- Click on the menu icon near the top-right corner, pull down the menu and select Options.
- Select Privacy and Security category from the left side.
- Scroll down until you see section for Notifications.
- Place a tick mark against Pause notifications until Firefox restarts.
That’s it now you are all set. Now you can do whatever you wanted to do in the first place – watch movies, play online games, work on your latest blog post – no notification will bother you anymore. And if you undo all the steps mentioned above, you won’t even have to restart Firefox to start receiving the notifications once again.
