How to disable notification (and location) requests in Firefox for Android

24 July 2019 by Lincoln Ramsay

The internet is awash in articles explaining how to disable notification requests in Firefox. But none of them bother to point out that the settings they mention don’t exist on Firefox for Android.

I eventually tracked down a config item that gives you the same effect.

Go to the URL bar and type about:config.

In the search box, type dom.webnotifications.enabled.

Click on the item and toggle it (to false).

Congratulations! You will no longer be prompted to enable notifications on Firefox for Android.

Location requests

Go to the URL bar and type about:config.

In the search box, type geo.enabled.

Click on the item and toggle it (to false).

Congratulations! You will no longer be prompted to share you location with websites on Firefox for Android.
