In 2020, Firefox could become the first web browser to impose a default block on notification popups that are increasingly common on a wide range of websites, reports ZDNet. The Mozilla Foundation, the developer of Firefox, is planning to block the display of notification popups that are increasingly present on today's websites.

According to research conducted by Mozilla, an immense majority of users dismiss these notifications, which they perceive as an annoyance, comparable to intrusive advertising popups. Let's not forget that this perception is in part fueled by the fact that notification popups are often used to spread spam.

Instead of a popup, the browser will display a dedicated icon on the left of the URL bar to indicate that a notification is available. The new functionality may be deployed as soon as 2020 with the launch of the Firefox 72 update.
