    Did anyone find a way to disable the web push notifications? They are the most intrusive right now and it gets annoying after clicking them away so many times.
    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.)

    I know what a web push notification is, they are annoying. Sadly, the firefox website doesn't mention any way to disable it 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    Well, in a way, yes, you did miss something, as the linked file is somewhat out-of-date, but if you go to Options and search for Notifications, you will be taken to the Privacy & Security Page, where you will find an entry for Permissions;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 clicked that button many times, doesn't help. It unchecks itself again.

    Should problably also say that I have been testing firefox with the new profile for some time, and so far firefox hasn't been as slow and sluggish as before. I suspect that 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 don't think there is a single fix to the problems, they will have to be solved with time.

    I think its reasonable fast with a new profile and without addons. I will try to install my addons one by one to see if it slows firefox.

    I have tried both, they didn't help. With that being said, I have found the correct one. Its called dom.webnotifications.enabled, similar to the one you suggested.

    Setting it to false seems to get rid of the annoying pop-ups.

    I just tried disabling all the default extensions that comes with firefox again. Firefox has gotten lightning quick. Seems like a fresh profile without any addons plus disabling all the build in junk extensions makes firefox run fast and smooth. It just sucks that you need a program to disable the extensions.

    Will try to install some of my addons to see if it affects performance.

    What "all the default extensions" are you writing about? There should be very few to none with a new Fx profile. I just created such a profile, and found two extensions;.One was for Free Download Manager, and it was disabled; it was not installed by Firefox, but by Free Download Manager, which is installed in Windows; the second was some sort of experimental extension from Mozilla, which I disabled; curiously, when I restarted the new profile, that extension no longer appeared, not even as a disabled one.

    Three plugsins, one required by Mozilla (the video codec,) one provided by Google for playing protected web video (Widevine content,) and the third was Flash. As with Free Download Manager's extension, the Flash plugin is not installed by Fx; Flash is installed in Windows, and it automatically finds any newly-created Fx profiles and installs there.

    If you are getting much more than that, it is yet another example of my statement that I think you have multiple problems, and need to do some serious cleaning of your computer.
