Searched the archives but didn't see anything. Is there a way to turn off these Facebook notices that pop up in the lower right corner when you have left FB and are on other sites? I don't like seeing that someone just commented on something I looked at and then I left FB. Seems like it just started very recently , at least for me. I don't remember doing anything to allow that. Thanks for your help.

Thumbs down *

I constantly get popup alerts for facebook (When one of thier TRACKING ADS tries to display on my browser (Alot of sites have them)) it is HTTPS and prompts me wheather I wanna allow it... WHICH I CLICK NO...... I am about to block facebook totally in my host file.... I DO NOT WANNA BE TRACKED... Im not even on that intrusive site!! -- Im sick of them trying to spy on everyone and Im grateful I get alerts when thier tracking crap tries to display (Thus tracking me if I allowed it)

I only see that on Windows 10, after I leave FB logged in and close my browser.
Log out of Facebook when you done with it.

Site notifications are a new feature in Chrome. If you don't want them, it's not too difficult to turn them off.
