User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
Build ID: 20170814142917

Steps to reproduce:

Go to any website that wants to push notifications to you.

Example: https://pushassist.com/knowledgebase/how-to-enable-or-disable-push-notifications-on-chrome-firefox-safari-b/

Firefox is using cached memory of the website to store the decision for push notifications.  So users in PRIVATE browsing mode OR who clear firefox memory on exit have to put up with these HORRIBLE NEW POPUPS that we all thought we got rid of in the 1990s!!!!

So it appears Firefox users have to make a choice:  A: Not protect their privacy or B) put up with popups on every site they go to.  And it won't long before EVERY website is abusing this HORRIBLE feature!



Actual results:

Dialog box pops up over URL every session even through I tell it to NOT send me push notifications.


Expected results:

Should not be popping up notifications.

Firefox STILL shows push dialog on EVERY web page even though in about:config

dom.push.connection.enabled=false
dom.push.enabled=false
dom.push.http2.maxRetries=0
This gets rid of push notification POPUPS:

dom.push.connection.enabled=false
dom.push.enabled=false
dom.webnotifications.serviceworkers.enabled=false
dom.webnotifications.enabled=false
