How to Setup Notification Settings in Firefox Computer?

Notifications seldom bother us when we are doing something very important on our sites and in some cases we miss out on something important due to blocked notifications. So, if you want to change the notification settings in your Firefox Browser then open the Privacy and Security option and open the settings tab in front of the Notification option in the Permission sections.

Browser notifications were introduced to allow the websites to share important news with their users easily and quickly. However, sometimes these notifications are irrelevant and frustrating too, so you disable them without having to worry about how this can be done.

Firefox is always committed to offering the best browsing experience but annoying notifications can ruin your experience. Maybe that’s the reason why Firefox added a new feature that enables the users to set up notification settings on Firefox computers.

This feature is pretty much helpful for most Firefox users. It will help you to improve your productivity by blocking irrelevant notifications that may cause a disturbance.

I have been using this feature for quite a while now. Just yesterday, I helped my father set up the same on his laptop so that he can work on his project without any distractions.
