Description

2 years ago
Firefox should consider that all user interrupt features should an affordance to disable and reject all future permissions requests.
Do we have a way to disable permissions globally, now that about:permissions is gone? My impression is that we're moving toward per-site permissions with the control center, but I haven't been following that work.
* You can block every type of permission on per-origin basis already
* Geolocation was added in Firefox 3.5 and we haven't had a need to add this beforeā€¦
* This doubles the size of the testing/support matrix which I think engineering and QA would both oppose
* This seems like a power user option which an add-on can easily add.

Given the above, I don't see a compelling reason to support this at this time.
