The display turns on when a push notification is received

When a push notification is received, the display turns on (via DPMS). Is it possible to get rid of this behavior? Is there some configuration option in Firefox in about:config? I can't exclude that it's not Firefox doing this, but I'm guessing it is.

You can try to set:

  • about:config => alerts.useSystemBackend = false

Tested with the demo on https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html. I tried setting alerts.useSystemBackend to "true" and "false", but the problem with turning on the monitor did not reproduce for some reason. In any case, thanks for the reply.
