Hey tech guys, quit with the nagging about enable push notifications. I get it on every page change and do NOT want push notifications. Starting to get tired of them.

If you click on the push notifications you can then choose
NEVER ask again

It works with edge/chrome as long as you do not clear cookies. When you do, you have to again click the never ask again.

That's what I was thinking, that it's likely a cookies issue. I just logged out and back in but haven't seen a nag yet.

I'm using Firefox 92.0 (latest version) and did a test. I disabled my push notifications and left it for a while then I closed the browser. When I opened Firefox again and went to TSG (never logged off) I get the nag message. You have to click on the X to get the options of "ask me later" or "never ask me again" (not sure of exact wording as it's gone now). I chose "never ask me again" and it worked. I can close the browser and reopen it and no nag. So that to me indicates a problem with your browser/cookie settings.

I've never had the issue. I wish there was a way to disable push notifications altogether. To me it is nothing more than a modern pop up. I have never wanted even one of them.

There is Scott. Go to your profile and click on Preferences. Then scroll down to "Push notifications" and click on the button that says "Disable push notifications". Then scroll down to "Receive a notification when someone..." and make sure "Push" is not selected for any of the options shown there.

I have yet to see a Push notification, and I'm not interested in getting them now. ;)

Looks like it's simple to kill them. This is from my user profile.

What is your device and what browser? I think that is a function of some browsers where you can disable push notifications, at least in Firefox you can.

I see the same thing when I look in my profile with Chrome...

It's interesting to note that apparently Firefox doesn't support push notifications from the above screen in my previous post. :)

Sure it does. I use Firefox and push notifications. They coexist happily ... ;-)

Yes it does but Firefox will ask you if you want to allow these notifications as part of the site's permissions and if you said no to that option at the beginning then they won't work and you will see that message if you try to enable them in your profile. I did a test earlier and removed that permission for TSG and saw the same message.

Well, since I don't like being pushed, I'll leave it just as it is. :D
