Do you want to configure notification settings to stop alerts from the Firefox browser? Learn how to adjust notification preferences in your browser.

Firefox browser sends push alerts when a site wants to draw our attention or when a website requests permission to send notifications.

We can customize these site notification permissions from the browser settings and adjust the notification preferences for individual websites. It also offers the option to block the sites from requesting permission to send notifications.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to configure the notification settings from sites in the Mozilla Firefox browser.

When we visit a site that is configured for web notifications, it will request us to allow or deny sending notifications using a small pop-up box. If you select the Allow command, Firefox will allow the website to send notifications.

However, it is recommended to block irrelevant site notifications. Here are the steps to manage:

  1. Launch the Firefox browser on your computer.
  2. Click Menu horizontal 3-bar icon to open the menu bar.
  3. Select Settings/Options from the menu list.

If you want to remove the website from the notification blocking list, select the website and click the Remove Website button available notification blocker window. You can choose to Remove All Websites to reset the notifications permissions for the sites.

You can also enable the checkbox for ‘Block new website requests asking to allow notifications’ option to stop all the notification request pop-ups on the same Notification Permissions window.

Bottom Line

Not all notifications are useless; some help makes you aware of important information. So it’s our decision which site to allow to send the notification.

A similar feature is available to configure the web notification in the Firefox on Android. Apart from notification, we can also manage the JavaScript and sound or media autoplay permissions within the browser settings on the computer.
