Annoying new announcement in Firefox


Hello list,

I’d been meaning to write about this for a bit, but got busy with other things and have been playing with Chrome, but with the recent versions of Firefox, I’ve been getting this notification with nearly every new page I load and can’t figure out how to click it away or stop it from popping up. See:

New in Firefox: Content Blocking
The privacy benefits of Tracking Protection are now just one part of content blocking. When you see the shield, content blocking is on.

I’m perfectly happy with the actual function of Firefox doing more to bloc trackers and so on, but I don’t’ need to have this spoken to me every time ai go to another page. Also, it says 1 of 3. I can’t seem to access any of this with the Jaws cursor or playing around with the F6 key and tabbing, etc.

Anyone know how to stop this announcement/notification?




          I've encountered this many times now, but not when running a screen reader.  If this is still happening for you I'd be glad to take a look via Quick Assist or Teamviewer as I'd be curious to see if there is a way to navigate the sequence via any screen reader.
