'Privacy' / cookies notices here, there and everywhere
« on: February 23, 2022, 11:38:01 PM »
Is it just me / my machine?

In the last week or so I can't browse without a cookies or privacy notice coming up requiring me to re-confirm all my 'choices' . It doesn't seem to recognise that I confirmed my choices 10 minutes previously!

Anybody else getting the same thing?

Not every website I re-visit, and not every new website I visit, but I do certainly get asked about cookie preferences. I use Firefox browser on Win10, but I also have a MX Linux machine, using Firefox,  and I don't recall being asked, but I don't use that one very much.

I think I've seen something similar when Firefox upgrades itself. I'm guessing the cookies contain something linked to the browser version.

Another option could be that there's a limited time that the cookies are valid for, set by the web server.

You can set you browser to delete cookies when you exit. Maybe check the settings?

I think it started occurring shortly after a European change in 'cookie' legislation. I get significantly more cookie confirmation requests now too.

Yep - PITA, and for a long time as well it seems.
Almost every site apart from this forum.
I generally don't have to re-confirm if I return to the site in one session of browsing, though.

Oh I assumed it was on the forumů? Yes, cookie permissions are always springing up elsewhere.

Same here, cookies at many sites, I would have thought that for forums and other sites that require log ins that it would be a simple matter to set cookie preferences at first registration.
