    <snip> The instructions given in the old version of https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/push/ were, In the URL bar, type about:permissions Set the Receive Push Notifications to Block. Websites will not be able to send you messages or ask for access to Push. Is there any preference to disable push? Is "Receive Push Notifications" gone from the Permissions Manager in Firefox 44? What about the dom.push.enabled preference? <snip>

    P.S. See also: https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/firefox-dev/2015-November/003516.html Intent to remove about:permissions Matthew N. MattN+firefox-dev at mozilla.com Sun Nov 8 08:14:40 UTC 2015 (Quote) <snip>I was recently suggesting we remove the notifications section from about:permissions in 44 so that we don't ship with ​it in the initial version with push since disabling push/notifications globally isn't something that I want to support. Users can simply not allow or block the functionality for specific sites. For every binary option we support it doubles the number of combinations to test and I'll argue we don't have the resources to support this doubling.<snip>
