(FYI) Small research: Firefox -1 fix (pesky google web pages login) -2 Extension for repetitive cookie questions

Hello! (FYI)

1.
I did a small search with Ecosia to try to get rid of the pesky “google login pop-up” that follows us on a lot of web pages. I consider this Web pollution! :unamused:

Here’s my find: (probably some people already know it; but others might find it useful :slight_smile: )
https://support.mozilla.org/si/questions/1405122#answer-1565665
→ From M. jscher2000 a bit down below. ( choose “Cross-site tracking cookies” and build your way up )

In french Canadian it’s the first one we start to choose and increment to needs:

2.
The other one is a nice extension I never saw before. It’s called Consent-O-Matic.

It’s to get rid of the really annoying questions about Cookies - with yes, no, etc that gives our web browsing pages a bad experience; again web pollution.

Consent-o-matic

Happy experimenting !

Yes you are right my friend! it was one of the solutions during my small search.
Please feel free to add more. I think the web pollution is getting really bad :wink:

P.S. if anybody finds typos please advise me. Jack is all over my keyboard … :wink: :cat2: and also disrupting Cabrel’s sleep :dog: (snoring burnese mountain …)

I…HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE that crap.
Thx God for ublock origin filters!

Not only it’s BLOAT, but also a security issue that most websites have, as well as Goolag adsense…disgusting.

Well… blocking ALL cookies except the one whitelisted is the better way to go imho.

umm … That makes sense :thinking:
I’ll continue my research to better educate myself. :open_book:

For the last couple of minutes, I’ve been trying different websites that need some basic activation ; banking etc.

And the tweaking done on my firefox since this afternoon was documented as not perfect but a good start; step in the right direction …

That makes your point relevant :ok_hand:

Thanks for sharing! I’ve also been reading a lot on Open culture (the link shared by our friend in Germany) and everything works well.

:wave: Take care :slight_smile:

I’ve got about:config so tightly tamped down and cookies sent to FPI, so I’m immune from much of that. I tried arkenfox it’s amateur hour compared to the stuff I’ve learned and I consider myself know-nothing. No GDPR stuff in my stateside model.
two cents no one asked: I’m glad ecosia worked for a solution. ddg doesn’t do crap anymore, brave in it’s infancy, and mojeek’s focus is the obscure. ecosia a good tip I have never used…
…great post.
I also consider your cross-tracking setting the best as far as cookies.

uBlock Origin = meh and all the subscriptions
Umatrix = Wrecks every page ootb til you adjust it. As it should be. Lovely!

Umatrix is dead… Loved it, but it’s dead. Ublock in restrictive mode can perform almost as well…

Perhaps I will try it. I know maintainer turned all his attention to Ubo and abandoned umatrix project…but it’s still incredibly effective…and incredibly vulnerable I suppose?

I think I bolted everything down to the usability I was looking for.
Special thank you to the completing knowledge of Mr. Pebcak µbloc:

The last websites that were poluted ( ebay.ca and newegg.ca ) are now good with an adjustment in Privacy Badger extension:

accounts.google.com

Next to the red triangle, I moved the TAB to the left. It becomes RED and it won’t come back. :slight_smile:

accountsGoogleCom

Thank you my friends, from a good old user of free software :wave:

Tried using uBlock to prevent the pop-up, but because I’m using containers it actually just fails to load then opens a new tab which also fails to load, and it would do that endlessly unless I quickly close the tabs.

I believe this is specific to the fact that I am using FF containers as in one of my FF profiles, there are no containers, I’m not logged into g00lag, and it goes straight to the page - bypassing the consent pop-up.

Same set of extensions in either browser.

EDIT: Just tested going to the site in the first profile and if I click “Reject all”, this also causes it to fail to load and opens a new tab requesting the same annoying permission. ← This is without the uBlock filter for “annoyances”.

So, yeah… g00lag is really anti-open internet and anti-anything non-chromium based. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Umm … I don’t have this behavior but your container setup might ignite some research of users right now.
I can contribute what I’m using here:
research4extensoins

Feel free to document your experimentation ; I’ll probably learn a lot :thinking:

edit: Latest extension adjustment.

The containers that I have (in both profiles) that affect site loading are uBlock, FF containers, CanvasBlocker, and Windscribe.

Edit: Made a mistake, FF containers is not in the second profile.

Ah … I’ll go do some reading on CanvasBlocker, Windscribe.
Thanks for the information.
