Is there a way to stop alert dialog from showing up without completely disabling JavaScript through about:config?

Hi there My question is

=

Is there a way to stop alert dialog from showing up without completely disabling JavaScript through about:config?

We think alert boxes are pure JavaScript and not considered pop-up.

Thank you!

There isn't a built-in preference to block the window.alert() function. I think it can be suppressed by injecting a script into a page that replace it with a "no-op" (do nothing) function, but I haven't searched for an extension or user script for that.

Maybe you do not get this alert if you block access to the location in "Tools -> Page Info -> Permissions".

Just to make sure ...... Does this mean that you went to Privacy & Security => Permissions => Location, then clicked on 'Settings', found www.bing.com listed there, checked the box saying : 'Block new requests asking to access your location', clicked 'Save Changes' and then closed and restarted Firefox  ?

In addition you could go to Page Info, as suggested by cor-el, and under the Permissions tab scroll down to 'Access Your Location', uncheck 'Use Default' and check 'Block' (worth a try .....).
