Those Annoying Notifications That I Have Mentioned

That appear in the lower right corner are not from the browser.  They are some sort of Windows 7 notification.  These come from applications like Thunderbird telling me new emails have arrived and from Space.com, and one of the conservative Canadian bloggers.  I wanted them dead because if I click in that area, even after the message disappears, I am taken to that webpage.  How do I turn them off?  What are they called, so that I can search for a method of removing them?

I encounter some websites that do this - it comes from the site itself. I can't comment on Windoze notifications since I browse on a Mac.

I had this experience after I had mistakenly clicked on a popup window which asked "Do you want notifications of new content," or something like that. Luckily for me I only got a few notifications, and was able to return to that site and deny permission.

Now I automatically deny permission on any popup, regardless of wording. Some of these popups sound like they're just asking for permission to email you, but it's these aggravating notifications that result.
