How To Turn Off Ubuntu Web Apps Notifications In Firefox

Firefox in Ubuntu by default comes with something known as “desktop integration” . What this does is provide a way to link Unity interface with popular websites like Facebook, Gmail, Twitter and so on.

This however can be annoying because browsing any of these websites through Firefox will result in a pop-up asking whether to allow integration or not.
