Websites can display notifications to the visitors in the Firefox web browser. These notifications are useful for websites that want to notify you of latest updates, new emails, news events, online chat partners or other similar things. When you visit a website that wants to display such notifications, they ask your permission to display the notifications. Without your permission in the Firefox browser, they won’t be allowed to display any of these notifications.
So basically if you do not want to see any of these notifications from any website, you have to keep blocking such permissions for each and every website as you visit them and they ask for the permissions. However there is a setting in Firefox using which you can block all future notifications in Firefox so that no website can bother you with these pesky notification messages.
Here is how you can block all website notifications in Firefox:
- Launch Firefox web browser and enter about:preferences in the address bar. Alternatively, you can click on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) near the top-right corner of Firefox and select Options from the menu that shows up.
- In the Preferences window, select Privacy and Security section from the left-side.
- Click on the Settings button next to the Notifications.
- Select Block new requests asking to allow notifications and then click on the Save Changes button.
This will make Firefox ignore all the requests coming from any website you visit to display notifications. But if you have already given permissions for any of the websites, then those websites will still be able to display notifications. If you do not want to see notifications from such sites, then you have to repeat the same steps and in the step 4, you can remove the permissions by clicking on the Remove All Sites button.
