Many websites currently support desktop notifications and these notifications can be quite annoying, especially if you are currently working at something very important. Well, today we will teach you how to disable web notifications on your Mozilla Firefox browser.
We have to mention that disabling web notifications is not that simple on Mozilla Firefox, as you will need to head to the configuration of the browser, since the company has not added this feature to the settings option.
First of all, you will need to write “about:config” in the address bar of your Mozilla Firefox. You will notice a warning message that it will tell you that “This might void your warranty,” but you should just ignore it and click on the “I accept the risk.” Once the next page opens, you will need to search or “notifications”.
There will be many search results, but the one that we are looking for is “dom.webnotifcations.enabled,”on which you will need to double-click to set the default value from “True” to “False.”
After doing this, you will notice that the pop-up on websites requesting you to allow them to notifications will no longer appear. At the same time, the web notifications from the websites that you’ve accepted before will not appear anymore.
You can always re-enable the web notification feature by taking the same steps and changing the “dom.webnotifcations.enabled” from “False” to “True” by double-clicking on it.
We think that Mozilla and other companies that develop web browsers should bring the web notification disable/enable feature to the settings of their application. This way, users will not have to access the configuration of the browser and disable this feature manually.
