    We value your privacy message - blocks access to vbforum

    The pop -up:

    "We value your privacy We and our store and/or access information on a device, such as cookies and process personal data, such as unique identifiers and standard information sent by a device for personalised ads and content, ad and content measurement, and audience insights, as well as to develop and improve products.

    blocks access to vbforum.

    I click agree and it just sits there, processing doing nothing. Pops up on every page, can't get past. "More options" does nothing. I presume it is trying to set a cookie and is failing because it is using a function that is not browser agnostic.

    I use palemoon to access this forum and I don't wish to change browsers. Can't you make the forum software browser agnostic? The pop up seems to only work on main browsers. Can you just turn it off?

    Well, I suppose you have found a way to keep me from the forum...

    Yet here you are

    I don't know what to tell you except to use a different browser or see if any of the current Ad Block extensions work with Pale Moon.

    It has never happened before. I assume it is something new that has been recently enabled?

    Anyway regarding the result: it just means I won't be here as much. TTFN.

    Popup?

    I use Waterfox + uBlock origin on my desktop and don't see it... and mainstream Chrome on my mobile with an adblock that doesn't block the ads here (so you guys still get *some* impressions from me when I'm on the bus/subway a few times a week ), and don't get popups on that either.
