- by Pablomino, 4 months agoRated 3 out of 5I have always been satisfied with this supplement and I have used it for many years. Recently, however, it has begun to negatively affect the behavior of Firefox by the fact that, for example, on the website www.czc.cz it was not possible to scroll the page down. I had to remove the add-on and now use Ninja Cookie to block cookie dialogs.
Developer responseposted 4 months agoTry reporting czc.cz using the "report" link in extension's menu: you'll see I'm aware of the problem and it will be fixed soon. Btw, you don't have to uninstall the extension just because of that: you can whitelist that website until it has been fixed.
- by Firefox user 15607480, 5 months agoRated 3 out of 5I had to disabled it, too many (italian) websites were broken by it (e.g. www.radio24.ilsole24ore.com)
Developer responseposted 5 months agoAre you sure? I just tried it and the website works perfectly. Please report to firstname.lastname@example.org if you see a problem there (or anywhere else). Thanks :)
- by Firefox user 17109352, 7 months agoRated 3 out of 5As of November of 2021, I ("technical data-security" person in public sector) see the legal situation for this addon as follows:
Lets start with a big con about entering legal contracts by surfing in the world wide web:
- Absolutely violates the " informed consent" required by GDPR by sometimes giving consent but hiding what I actually agreed to. Legally, neither the user nor the website now know if anyone is at fault for aggregating and using personal data. I can neither exercise my rights to be informed or correct data that was collected, nor can the website owner use or sell my data in good conscience.
- The developers website acknowledges this schism: "Please educate yourself about cookie related privacy issues and ways to protect yourself and your data. For example, you can block 3rd party cookies, install ad blocking extensions and then block tracking tools, delete browsing data regularly, enable Tracking Protection in your browser etc."
Which is the right way to handle cookie banners. This is the worst way for all parties involved. To reiterate: even the website owners get a poisoned gift by receiving non-legally-valid consent, and the user waives all control over their personal rights without even knowing, how that might hurt him or her whenever this add-on allows some tracking cookies to be stored.
+ Visually, seems to work. (Legally, see above. Browser Cookies are not about cookies or computer science, but the actual subject matter is keeping others from knowing what kind of stigmatised interests or ridiculed condition you keep to yourself or a very limited audience. By not caring, you shoot yourself in the foot.)
+ The developer actually reads this and reacts to it.
Starting in December, this Addon will probably need to register as a "Personal Information Management Systems" (PIMS) in germany, to finally become legal. Let's hope that it won't be an extensive and thereby expensive certification. If @Kiko fails to do that, this app will still work ins legally gray area are finally become illegal in germany and should regionally be blocked to avoid anyone sueing Kiko or the end-users.
The EUs info on that:
This might even of interest for power users or people who actually read EULAs.
Developer responseposted 7 months agoThe extension's name says it all - it's for people who don't care much about the consent the website will get, the data it will collect nor what it will do with that data. If you do care that much, it's probably not for you. You didn't rate how it does what it is for, but rather how you feel about the overall idea.
You were right about the somewhat poor description here on Mozilla though, I adjusted it. Thanks for that!
- by Firefox user 14698481, a year agoRated 3 out of 5The Cookies are just automatically beeing accepted and thats the reason why the warnings are not supposed to be shown
I hoped that not only the cookie warnings would not be shown, but especially that these will not be accepted. That should be the point
- by Chillosophy, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Works fine but injects random text into the html tag and doesn't explain why. Not suggesting this is malware, probably for some type of cookiewall, but I would like to see this explained somewhere and not have my DOM messed with.
-edit- Can't reply as far as I know. It definitely is this extension. Check common.js and common8.js.
- by Schmurtz, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5The EU regulation which many people criticize in these comments are a true progress in your own liberty and rights. I agree to said that the implementation is really bad on most of websites and there is something to do. But take the time to read carefully what is RGPD and what is changing with this regulation and you will see that it has been made for you, to protect you.
For the author, you really should precise what does it mean "I don't care about cookies" , does it mean that it click by default on "accept all" or "reject all". I think that it matter for all the users of this extension that probably (for some of them) take care to their privacy...Thanks for the review, Schmurtz!
Generally, I agree with you, users should know what the GDPR is all about. From i-dont-care-about-cookies.eu: "Please educate yourself about cookie related privacy issues and ways to protect yourself and your data..."
While privacy is important and the law is probably here because of us, somehow the implementation of that law is going terribly wrong. Nobody will ever find the time to read all the policies on a daily basis before accepting the policy of every visited website, especially users of this extension who mostly delete all privacy data automatically when closing the browser and are faced with the same policy acceptance pop-ups every day. It's just too much. So instead of user blindly accepting and moving on, here is the extension that does so.
I will add an explanation so the users know how the extension gets rid of warnings (in most cases it just hides and blocks them; it automatically accepts cookie palicies only when it's needed for the website to function properly). Thanks for the suggestion :)
- by kuumapete, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Not available on Firefox for Android.You should rate Firefox for Android then, not my extension :) Firefox team decides for some reason which extensions can be available there. Please join the conversation, maybe they'll add it if users demand it: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/when-will-my-extensions-become-available-on-firefox-for-android/66013
- by Firefox user 14790351, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Version 3.0.3 breaks login function of hotcopper.com.au
Adding hotcopper.com.au to exclusions list does not solve the problem.
Will need to disable this extension until the problem is resolved, thanks.
- by Firefox user 14676466, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5causes problems with many websites (onlyoffice.eu, mytf1.fr).
I know I can add exception, but finding which FF plugin is involved is a pain.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoIt's the same with any blocker which tries to do whatever it can to do its job. I don't see a problem on these websites (they were never reported the proper way). Please contact me by email (email@example.com) or via the Report link in the extension's menu and provide some more info, I'll be happy to fix it!
- by #98374, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5It works pretty good, but requests too big permissions like access to logins and passwords among many other. Can not find the link to open source platform like Github.
- by Firefox user 14285360, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Would be perfect if there was a way of hiding it from my context menu. Can it be done?
