It's there a Firefox extension to stop cookie notices, email sign-up popups, etc..
I just went to a website that needed three clicks to get rid all the rubbish ok that popped up before I could read an article.
It's not as bad as the dreaded and traumatising reCAPTCHA though!
@politicalcustard ublock origin can probably block some of that, but for cookie notices specifically there's this, for example:
Thanks very much. I'm already using uBlock Origin/Matrix. I'll certainly check out the cookie add-on.
@politicalcustard You can report pop-ups to Mozilla with this In-Page Pop-up Reporter. And BehindTheOverlayRevival is pretty good at killing them without looking, though no automatic mode unfortunately.
Cheers! Thanks very much.
@politicalcustard I think the add-on you are looking for is "I don't care about cookies"?
@politicalcustard Did it work for you?
@politicalcustard there's "buster" for captcha
Nice! Thanks. Because I use Firefox with a VPN, with a load of privacy extensions, I have to do loads of CAPTACHAs to get into websites. It's infuriating.
