    The Notifications Pop-up ..... I'm over it

    So how do I get rid of the bloody annoying thing.

    It seems to override my pop-up blocker and in Firefox the block website entry window is not accessible.
    Cheers

    when one pops-up, from memory, hover over the notification and there is a settings tool that shows, click on in it to change your settings.

    PS, it is a browser thing, not an AP thing. The browser detects the notifications available and pops up the window. It is not an actual part of AP. I have had it pop up on FB when I get messages and other sites too.

    In firefox, it is here in options, content : about:preferences#content - copy that into your browser search bar and hit enter

    Yeah Kev this was a PITA when it turned up. As rick says, it's a FF thing (why do they think we care? Maybe heaps of people really enjoy be up-to-date by the second?)

    Think I stopped it by going into Options > Content then tick the Block pop-up windows.

    I'm just used to FF but if they do to many things like this it may lead to a a new browser relationship forming.

    Tried all the above with no joy.

    However yesterday I noticed it now had an option to disable it. Clicked on it and 'Hey Presto', no more annoying bloody pop-up.

    Kev. Just think of the old "Flick" ad. - "Remember on flick, and they're gone!"
    Just replace "flick" with a (mouse) click (anywhere), and... wheredigo?

    Dunno, but you might get a plague of mice later

    it is both a browser and site feature.; it can be turned off.

    As Rick said, hover and then you can control it.

    Also they can be turned off in the browser (generically).

    Also: It is NOT just a Firefox thing.

    It is also in Chrome and coming to other browsers soon (Edge) as it is a new standard feature.
