Disable desktop notifications for a site

more options

With the new update, Google Music now sends desktop notifications. Firefox asked me if I wanted to enable them, and I accepted, but now I find them very annoying. How can I turn them off? I searched in the options but I didn't find anything

Chosen solution

You can reset this to the default (or outright disallow it) on a per-site basis by right-clicking somewhere in a blank spot of the site (or pressing Ctrl-I on Windows or Cmd-I on Mac) and then selecting "View Page Info" from the opening menu. This opens a window with a "Permissions" tab. I that, scroll down to the very bottom until you see "Show Notifications" as the third-to-last entry. Either reset that to the default, or just select "Block".

Additionally, the notifications are currently a labs feature in Google Music, so you can also disable them by going into the Google Music Labs preferences and disabling them.
