Starting recently the firefox popups for website notifications are stealing focus and disturbing my workflow. I'm using i3 window manager and normally popups would have some id or class that can be used to latch on and prevent the focus stealing but the windows created now do not have any such marker.

It should be fixed in version 124 by Bug 1878037.

You can switch to system notifications in the meantime by changing alerts.useSystemBackend to true in about:config then restart the browser.
