so i went to a website called imaker.com and when when i switch tabs to another page (like this one) the tab for imaker.com keeps flashing "1 new message" and then the website name and their icon.

how the hell do i stop this from happening as it's extremely distracting.

Server not found

Firefox can’t find the server at www.imaker.com.

oh. so there's nothing we can do to stop the tab heading from flashing?

An ad blocker might stop it.

Maybe pin this tab to hide the annoying label flashes and maybe contact the website and ask them to use something less obtrusive.

i do have an adblocker and stuff. yeah seems like nothing firefox can do.

hey - does anyone else find it odd that when you receive an email notification of a response to the question there is no "click here to view your discussion"?
