Every time I open FireFox and then attempt to google a question, a Google notification opens like the one that appears in the upper right hand corner of the attached screen shot.

How do I shut this down.

I am using Firefox 90.0.2 on a Windows 10 Pro 64-bit computer. Windows 10 Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.1110) Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

Any info will be much appreciated.

If you close such a notification then this is usually remembered and saved in a special cookie or in local storage, this implies that you need to keep such a cookie via an allow exception or you will receive this notification once again.

It should also be possible to hide this notification with a content blocking extension or with CSS code in userContent.css.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected to get its selector (go up in the DOM tree to get the correct containing element).
