Hello, I'm looking to stopping **ALL** website Pop Up Notifications--NOT just selected ones. I've already gone to Privacy & Security-->Notificatications. This is feature is totally pointless. This feature assumes you repeadily go to the same singular site that causes pop ups --not random site you visit. I did check off the button at the bottom "Block new requests asking to allow notifications." My issue is NOT, NOT seeking to block "permissions" (I have never seen or been asked by Firefox to 'allow permission for website notifications')--I'm seeking to stop ALL website pop ups notifications that intrusively just appear at the lower right corner. I don't understand why there isn't a single button to stop these intrusive and annoying pop up pushes??? It's a no brainer. I hope you can help with a solution. Thank you in advanced.

You can check if you have a Push permission for suspect domain(s) like shown at the bottom of the message and revoke this permission. See "How do I revoke Web Push permissions for a specific site?":

Thanks for your reply. I'm assuming you didn't get the gist of my post. I want to stop ALL push notication pop-ups. I have no idea when they will occurr until I randomly come upon a website that creates pop-ups. I may go a website once. Therefore, "listing websites" is moot. Simply, please tell me how to stop ALL push notification pop ups. Thank you!

There are two types of notifications. There is desktop notification that a website can use when you are connected to the website. The other type of notification that works via a service worker uses a special Push API and a website can use this API at any time whether you are connected to the website or not as it uses a special Push server that manages these notifications.

These notifications require that you give permission to receive the notification when the website prompt you. Notifications are controlled globally via prefs that you can inspect and modify in about:config.

Global setting Push notifications:

  • dom.push.enabled (dom.push.connection.enabled;dom.push.serverURL)

Global setting Web notifications:

  • dom.webnotifications.enabled and dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled
