I would like to stop pop-up notifications

Posted

I get pop-up notifications up in the corner from Facebook and after I clear the cache. This is new since I installed FF 32.

What is it showing? Is it a message, add or what?

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a good add / pop-up blocker.

They're not adds, they're little notifications in the upper right corner, from different programs like Facebook, or the Apple store about updates. It's not just Facebook, it's been a couple different websites. I'll try to catch it with a screen grab.
