Website notifications alert



  • Increasingly, I come across websites that want to keep me updated by sending notifications. These primarily are news sites. The offer comes via a rectangular pop-over at the top of the page that must be dismissed before continuing to read. Is there any way to prevent these from manifesting? I don't see anything within V. Is this planned, or is there an extension? Thanks.

    @paul1149 There is no global "never show notifications for any website" setting in Vivaldi per se. In the normal course, you have to set to approve or block notifications one site at a time - while you are at the site.

    The chromium engine does not offer a "never show" option. However, it does permit you to set "always ask" - which is the default Vivaldi setting (in other words, don't just pop up notifications) and for EVERY website that you decline, notifications will be blocked from that point on.



  • Thanks much, @Pesala and @Ayespy.

    Excellent. Once per site will work fine for me. I'll check this out. Thanks much.



  • This has worked well for me, with some exceptions. One site that I frequent queries me on every page I open. I have clicked No dozens of times, but it makes no difference. I believe there's a list somewhere of sites that have been allowed or blocked, and this site shows as blocked, but I can't find the list right now. But the site certainly has been blocked. I don't know if this is a web site problem or Vivaldi.

    @paul1149 The popups you show comes from the page Javascript software, can not be blocked by Vivaldi.

    Ok, thanks. And yes, that's where I have the site blocked. I'll try to get through to the site about this.
