    Are you a Mozilla Firefox user? Firefox 72 brings more privacy protection enhancements and addresses annoying notification request popups. Learn more about this release:

    Mozilla has released Firefox 72, bringing more cross-site tracking protections, an answer to annoying notification request popups, floating video windows, and a control to request that Mozilla deletes the telemetry data it's collected. 

    Firefox 72 finally offers a better answer to the annoying notifications requests that some websites display in the hope of increasing traffic through notifications. 

    Mozilla decided to hide these notifications after finding 97% of users dismissed them. Instead of intrusive popups, notification requests will appear as a "speech bubble" in the address bar.
