    Doing Option 3, step 5. The "Notifications" are non-selectable (greyed out) and show "block". I had previously allowed notification in the pop-out banner that appears at the top left of the Chrome web page. Why is it greyed out & has this overridden my 'alow' on the pop-out? The site shows "Not Secure" next to its address.

    Hello theoldfarter,

    Are you able to use Option 2 instead to "Allow" the site at step 6?

    Used Option 2 to add the address to the Block option, as that is what I want to do, at step 6. I may not have explained myself very well but this should stop anything from that site. If not, I will revisit this tutorial. Thanks for your help & prompt answer.

    Sorry for the confusion. Please let me know if it didn't block site notifications from that site.
