    News notifications

    I am running fedora 30 and recently have started receiving news notifications, which lead to the Daily Fail.

    Anyone know where these are coming from, web searches are not being very helpful.

    Can you post some screenshots to illustrate your problem? I am not sure I understand what you mean by "news notifications".

    Hmmm... maybe this? I'm using Firefox/F30 and had pop-ups for a local online newspaper, similar to the pop-up when you've got updates pending. Found that it was listed in the firefox menu > more > Task Manager. Perhaps I gave the online news permission at some time? Well, unchecked and killed it.

    Thank you, I did find it.

    Yes it is firefox web push notifications, now turned off.

    I don't remember seeing any requests for permission.

    Well.... I THOUGHT it was fixed for me, but had another pop-up yesterday and did a bit more poking! So, in Firefox, check Edit > Preferences > Security & Privacy > Notifications. Yup, it was listed there too, plus a couple of others. Removed them all. Hope that does it.

    LOL! As soon as I went to Facebook, it wanted me to allow Notifications. NOPE!!!!
