Recently, I enabled getting desktop notifications when my opponents in Words with Friends made a move. I would really like to disable these notifications. I have no idea where to do that. I looked in Words with Friends tools and I looked in Firefox and I looked in Facebook (which is where I play Words with Friends). But I can't seem to find the place to disable these banner notifications that pop up in the upper right corner of my screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you so much. I was able to solve this a different way. I went into my System Preferences, clicked on Notifications, selected Firefox, and turned off the banner and the sounds. Yay! Maybe your solution also would work but I think I'll quit while I'm ahead! :-)
