Mozilla Firefox discovered in 2021 that about 99% of notification prompts go unaccepted anyway, with 48% being actively denied by the user. Here is how you can cruising the web without interruptions.

How to Block Notification Requests on Mozilla Firefox

Step One: When you visit a website that wants to send you notifications, a speech bubble will appear in the URL bar.

The bubble replaces the old larger pop-up window. The bubble will wiggle very briefly letting you know that a notification message has been blocked by Firefox.

Step Two: You can ignore the bubble, and continue what you were doing. You won’t see the pop-ups again, but if you either want to receive notifications from this website or never see the wiggling speech bubble again, you can set your permissions by clicking on the speech bubble and choose “Never Allow” or “Allow Notifications“.

Keep in mind, this is available on the newer versions of Mozilla Firefox. You can read more on how to update your Firefox browser here in our previous article.
