'Block Notification requests' setting is not synchronizing

Hi, I have several systems and I'd like to disable web notifications in all of them. I thought I can achieve that with synchronization feature but even though 'sync options' checkbox is checked, some settings are not syncing, eg. 'Block Notification requests' or 'Check if Firefox is default browser' or disabling automatic updates.

Is there a way to sync those options automatically so I don't have to click them out by hand everywhere?

There are services.sync.prefs.sync<pref-name> prefs with a value true for each pref that is included in syncing preferences.

You can set the corresponding services.sync.prefs.sync.<pref-name> pref to false to prevent syncing this pref.

  • prefs that have a corresponding services.sync.prefs.sync.<pref-name> pref that is set to true will be synced to other devices
  • prefs that have a corresponding services.sync.prefs.sync.<pref-name> pref that is set to false will be excluded from syncing
  • if you want to sync prefs that are currently not included then create a corresponding Boolean sync pref and set its value to true

You can search the about:config page for notification*enabled prefs that show bold.
