Lets hope they are not going this way that popups comes in the middle of a screen when it blocks malware , like in previous beta !
[2306] Threat Protection Dialog Opinion
I actually kind of prefer them in the middle of the screen.

I find it almost too easy for some users to ignore bottom right hand of screen pop ups (avast, toast notifications)
I know my wife has for blocked web domains a few times lol

I may be the only one though.
