Does anyone else get this annoying intrusion. Can we stop it? It seems to by-pass Ghostery and all other blockers, Ad-Block

Look for AdGuard AdBlocker.

Must admit i do not get that one but i do get. We care about your privacy.

Now if I accept it it works fine on that page but if i turn to a different post it pops up again. So no matter what i do I get it. So frustrating that i cant use Firefox anymore and have to use Chrome. I use ad guard and ghostery. How do you stop that annoying pop up Firefox.

Same as Fruit Bat - uBlock Origin. No ads at all.

@ Govan1x . Check in Firefox that 'send notifications' is blocked under the lock icon on the address bar. Might just be that setting.

Just to chip in; I'm using Opera on PC, & see ads/vids at all. I guess it must have ad blockers built in. The only thing I've added to Opera is the 'I don't care about cookies' add-in.

Might be worth some of you trying it, especially if you're having problems.

Sorry for gatecrashing your post HondaMan. Just to add that Fruit Bat /\0/\'s selection worked still get the privacy pop up but can go to other threads without it appearing again so that was a bonus.

Then tried x13 selection and it did not show under the lock but went into settings and blocked notifications and i don#t get the privacy pop up anymore. Hope it stays that way.

Thanks everyone for their suggestions.

Also, not seeing anything in Firefox, although with that, I do have 4 ad blockers plus the don't care about cookies add-in.

I also use Opera and Ublock Origin and can block them all BUT I can't post a reply unless I disable Ublock. It is the Java function that needs blocking.

alanrwood - that's interesting because I don't have any additional ad blockers on Opera, not as far as I know anyway. I'm using it in its default mode. Currently using 'optimal' vpn setting too. Could the Ublock origin be messing with the Opera default settings so you're needing to disable it to post?
