Why is 'Notifications-Do not disturb me' not a constant setting?

Posted

I don't understand why Firefox developers have set up 'Notifications-Do not disturb me' to reset to unchecked (i.e. 'Please disturb me') upon each new browsing session.

Needless to say, any user would want each and every browser setting to remain in place for each and every browser session, until changed by the user.

Otherwise the purpose of having settings -- consistent customized browsing experiences as defined by browser options and user desires -- is moot, so I don't understand why something as noticeable (and annoying for many) as notifications is constantly reset to thwart user desires.

It goes without saying I and others want the 'Do not disturb me' box check to remain intact session after session. Please make this change.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for the reply.

I'll just be quiet, and like everything Microsoft, enter Mozilla's new realm of going fishing for buried-from-the-user solutions by using Google searches, in the absence of developers' attention to extremely common sense and common courtesy expectations for applications.

This after all, is the epitome of corporate behavior.

Thank you for your efforts, and have a good night.

Wow, it's unfortunate that you are in such a dark place. I picture a dimly lit room and an nearly empty bottle of whiskey. But seriously, this forum is like the emergency room of lost data and shattered productivity. Feature requests are both beyond our ability to deliver and quickly buried by the disasters of the moment. You will do better to press for change elsewhere.
