- by KnOwlEdge, a month agoRated 5 out of 5As of today this is the only Addon which works against the redirect to google consent page.
Well, also Laboratory (by Firefox) works, but it's not meant for this so I am not sure if it's meaningful to use it just for this.
@defkev, in its consent page google gives 4 options, one for search customization, one for youtube history, two for AD personalisation. They can be turned on or off.
Could you please tell me if while bypassing the google redirect page your addon is allowing or rejecting these 4 things?
Developer responseposted a month agoOn Google i am injecting a generic consent cookie (i didn't even notice they changed it again) without setting any of the "personalization" stuff., imho this implies "no consent" but wherever Google is treating "no reply" as "no consent" is something you will have to ask Google.
Fandom uses a random consent cookie and rejects all opt-in.

- by Esokrates (2), 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5Had to make a second account, since only one review is possible per account.
Could you please make a repo somewhere to report issues?
There seems to be a corner-case missing for derstandard.at since "Livebericht" does not work, see for example:
Suggestions for further sites:
Would be great if could handle those. Thanks very much for the great extension!
- by Tabis, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5Addon keeps forgetting that i've disabled it on youtube. Does it store that setting in some cookie-like storage? I'm using cookie AutoDelete to clean all that (except the youtube "CONSENT" cookie).
Reason for the exception is that this addon causes an irritating brief pause very shortly after a new video starts playing.
- by mozmeister, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5This Consent Blocker is a welcome relief.
For trustpilot com, the page hangs / doesn't load completely.
Thanks. The Fennec sideload worked perfectly - RE: "A Firefox (68) Android version would be wonderful)"
Developer responseposted 5 months agoYou can sideload it on Fennec from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ (android only lists "approved" addons) using the Download File link or use a custom collection in Fenix (e.g. my own https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/13051614/Fenix/)
- by gecko, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Sehr gute Erweiterung. uBlockorigin und i dont care about cookies konnten die neue google zustimmung nicht blocken.Ihre erweiterung blockt das zuverlässig.Bitte weiter so.
Und danke für diese Arbeit.
Für Safari Browser wäre das auch sehr schön.Kann man damit Rechnen in absehbarer Zeit ?
- by Esokrates, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Could you publish the code on github / gitlab as well? Would be also great for bug reporting and comfortably proposing changes!
Furthermore, could you maybe add support for the following site?
Currently on that page your addon has to be disabled and that consent dialog really sucks.
Edit: Thanks for adding derstandard.at
There is one small case that does not work though, could you have a look? When selecting articles labelled "Livebericht" not all the content is loaded. Can't give a permant URL to those, as those change daily. Today this one here is a Livebericht:
Could you also look into golem.de?
I hope you get notified of my Edit as posting replies is not possible it seems. Therefore a bug tracker would be much nicer.
Developer responseposted 6 months agoAdded derstandard.at in 0.3.2
This is the mess the GDPR abomination created, derstandard.at uses SourcePoint but with its own flavor. There really is no universal fix which just works for everything unfortunately.
Not unless the IETF drafts a solution which gets implemented in the browser like the EU should've done it in the first place.
The project is hosted on a non-public git, i'm toying with idea to mirror it and crowdsource the config, which is currently in JSON, of which i am still not sure how well it scales.
- by Alex, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you so much for saving my sanity from endless "Before you continue to Google..." pages that were driving me crazy. it is especially bad if you clear cache & cookies when Firefox closes or use Container addons.
- by dogfriend, 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Veeeeeeeeeeeeery cool Add-On indeed. It is one of my FAVORITE Add-Ons. I know it is hard these days to block all this Google sh*t but it works very well for me.
I wish you could do this Add-On for Chrome too. That would be more than PERFECT !!! Are you able to port this one for Chrome???
All the best for you and your projects. THANKS A MILLION.
- by hansjok, 7 months agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for this extension!
I have the following issue:
With enabled option 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' or 'Clear history when Firefox closes' > 'Cookies', after every restart Firefox, I get the "Sign in to YouTube" popup at youtube.com.
Developer responseposted 7 months agoThat's because Google is driving a very aggressive marketing and absolutely wants you to login to feed their algorithm they can monetize on. At times i get up to three different prompts reminding me to login, a modal in the center, a sticky notification on the top right 3-dot menu and a popover bottom left. As long as you don't get the consent modal after dismissing the login modal the add-on is working as intended.
