    ...............so there is no need for that profile manager. I am have no problems at all. Just an FYI
    My suggestion to test using a new Firefos profile to determine where his problems comes from was a lot better than yours (Do nothing). This thread is about his Firefox issues and not about how great Firefox works for you. Testing using a new profile is a tool we have available for diagnosing and fixing problems, it usually works.

    So, did anyone find a way to disable the web push notifications? Id say they are the most intrusive right now, and it gets annoying when you have to close them down on a daily basis.

    It took me perhaps fifteen seconds to do a Google search, which turned up this information; I make no claims as to its accuracy nor its usefulness, as I have not even read the information or taken advantage of whatever it tells its reader to do:.

    (Pedantic comment: Note the proper use of `its', without an apostrophe.)

    Yes, i know what a web push notification is, they are annoying. Sadly, the firefox website doesnt mention a way to disable them permanently, unless I missed something?

    Well, in a way, yes, you did miss something, as the linked file is somewhat out-of-date, but if you go to Options and search for Notifications, you will be taken to the Privacy & Security Page, where you will find an entry for Permissions; ironically enough, that entry has a link to the page I sent the link to you earlier.

    There is an entry there specifically for "Do not disturb me." I'm not certain why it seems to say that the setting might be changed when you restart Fx: While I am not in the habit of checking that, I don't get notifications, so have to suspect that the wording is itself suspect.

    Yes, i have clicked that button many times, doesnt help. It just unchecks itself again.

    I should problably also say that i have been testing firefox with the new profile for some time, and so far firefox hasnt been as slow and sluggish as before. I suspect that some of the addons i was using may have been slowing firefox?

    I am going to start this reply by stating that you are having entirely too many problems with Fx. Unfortunately, I have no single thing that I can suggest, based on the earlier suggestions in this thread, that will fix most, if not all, of those problems, nor do I know of any such item.

    For example, you state that Fx is now not as slow as it was previously, but you do not state that it is fast. Of course, without any specifics as to what constitutes `slow' and `fast', it is impossible to determine if what you are now experiencing is reasonable, whatever "reasonable" means. Yes, improvement could very well be due to removal of one or more extensions and/or plugins. Those two things are contained in the word "addons"; extensions, by themselves, are extensions, not addons.

    To your latest problem; here is a link to a set of steps to try when settings are not retained; please do not use the first step, called Refresh; that causes many more problems than it cures, is poorly described by Mozilla, and should be avoided:

    In about:config, try setting either or both of these to false:

    I dont think theres a single fix to these problems, so they will have to be solved with time.

    I think that firefox is reasonable fast if you create a fresh profile without addons. I will try to install my addons one by one to see if they are slowing firefox.

    I have tried setting both of them to false, it didnt help. With that being said, i found the right one. Its called dom.webnotifications.enabled, similar to the one you suggested.

    If i set it to false it will get rid of the annoying popups.
