How can I disable the notifications that randomly pop up in the lower right corner of e2studio. I have disabled notifications via the e2stuido settings in "Window / Preferences / General / Notifications" and ensured "Enable notifications" is not checked but I still receive notifications. Specifically the last notification I just received was "New Notification, There are 20 new community news. Click here to view detail".
I am not familiar if there is any official way to completely disable (/prevent from loading) the "Smart Browser" feature as it contains several internal dependencies bundled within this IDE.
Although, it is possible to disable it partially, by preventing automatic updates retrieval, as follows:
1. Preferences - C/C++ - Renesas - Smart Browser - [ Refresh interval: None ]
2. Preferences - General - Startup and Shutdown - Plug-ins activated on startup: [ ] Smart Browser
3. Close every "Smart Browser" View tab on every Perspective you use within your Workspace and save these custom perspectives (for eventual resetting purposes).
I hope it helps.
