I don't like the "never allow" button, how do I put the "not now" button back?

Posted

The current situation, since upgrading to version 70, causes me angst. Websites ask for permission to send notifications, and now I can't put it off, I have to decide immediately if I want the notifications, or to send them away forever. Even if there may be some way to reverse the effect later, I do not like at all having to make a decision that has some apparent finality about a website I do not know yet. I can't bear the question looming over the page, either, but as it stands, all I can do to make it go away is to click one of the two entirely unacceptable options. I don't want such a final decision on every random site I come across. I want to go back to putting it off until later. Please tell me how to make this stop!

I looked in about:config, for something with the words notify or notification in it, found permissions.desktop-notification.notNow.enabled and toggled it from false to true. That seems to have done it.

That doesn't do anything to it, it stays.

I looked in '''about:config''', for something with the words '''notify''' or '''notification''' in it, found '''permissions.desktop-notification.notNow.enabled''' and toggled it from false to true. That seems to have done it.
