    cookies popups and site avoiding using tabs


    ver 21h2 19044
    ok it seems now just about every place i visit i get that annoying cookie popup anyplace on the screen. how in the world can i set a switch someplace that will just stop them?

    also now it seems i get hundreds of those popup's in the center of the screen asking some stupid questions about signing up for some stupid stuff or adding emails to there site. how to turn those off?

    i have adb adblock plus ublock origin. pop up blocker all for chrome and i still get them. is this now a chrome thing? and chrome is now allowing them to show up? i have in the chrome setting to stop popups and to block all but extremely necessary cookies but here they are in force. i never had these issues until maybe 6 month to a year ago. and some sites now will not load until you turn off ad blockers. plus some site now load but not in the tab so if you try to do a ublock on them they go away to avoid that process.

    so how to turn them off or block them? thanks

    How could you disable or not have cookie prompts?

    You might try a browser addon. "I don't care about cookies" is available for several browsers.

    Prompts for you to accept cookies are nothing to do with ad-blockers or popup blockers.
    The EU regulations require that any website using tracking cookies must get user's permission before installing them. These warnings appear on most websites until the visitor agrees with the website's terms and conditions. Imagine how irritating that becomes when you surf anonymously or if you delete cookies automatically every time you close the browser.

    This add-on will remove these cookie warnings from almost all websites! You can report any website which still warns you about cookies: just click 'Report a cookie warning' from the extension menu (the brown cookie image next to your address bar).

    In most cases, the add-on just blocks or hides cookie related pop-ups. When it's needed for the website to work properly, it will automatically accept the cookie policy for you (sometimes it will accept all and sometimes only necessary cookie categories, depending on what's easier to do). It doesn't delete cookies.

    Other browsers are supported too. Check I don't care about cookies 3.4.6 for info, support and donations.
    As for ad-blockers vs sites- in some cases you will need to set an exception for that site if it requires you to accept ads.
    Mileage might vary from ad-blocker to ad-blocker.

    thanks i will give that i don't care about cookies a try.

    what about those pop ups in the center of the screen that show up about 10 seconds after your on the site and trying to read what the site has and bam a pop up shows and blocks half the page.

    but now i have the cookie blocker installed and will see if that does any good. thanks

    - too vague a description... and might be site-specific.
    Screenshot + URL?

    Random example: if I go to my Santander bank site, about every 2 weeks Santander kindly (!) provides a popup box telling me I should install Rapport by IBM- and that covers the login fields.

    And sometimes messages about accepting cookies can be huge.

    i will send a screenshot the next time i get one so you can see. i do not mind the ones that are for reminders like the bank uses and they most alway are in the upper corner. but a lot of site have them in the center of the screen. kind of like the one at the just answers site tha topos up on the right side of the screen and takes up half the screen. then you click it off and a much smaller one show in the lower right side and that one you can click it and you get the big pop up again. if just the smaller one showed up that would be ok but half the page is terrible. thanks
