Push Notifications on the Windows 10's Action Center?

One day, all my Push Notifications on websites like Youtube and such are suddenly going on my Windows 10's action center instead of just showing it on the web browser like it normally does.

Was this a update change or some setting I accidentally changed? (or changed on me) And How do I switch it back?

Please see recent release notes: Windows native notifications are now enabled.

To disable it, enter about:config in the address bar and switch alerts.useSystemBackend.windows.notificationserver.enabled to false.

Thanks. Now will that switch it back to notifications appearing on my web browser, or will that disable it entirely?

UPDATE: I did the change. But it didn't work. I'm still getting notifications on my Windows 10 Action Center...

Can anyone help me?

You received a reply from cor-el to also set the alerts.useSystemBackend preference to false in about:config.
