Persistent POP-UP; Manage Options / Agree (& repeat & repeat &)

Tue Aug 11, 2020 8:55 am

I cannot be the only one suffering this bug.
From the very first arrival at the home page, EVERY SINGLE SUBSEQUENT PAGE is prefaced by the following pop-up.

Welcome to Airliners.net

In support of our communities, we and our 3rd party partners set cookies to deliver personalized content and ads.
By continuing to use this forum, including clicking the 'OK, understood!' button below, you consent to the use of collected data and cookies on this site.

Learn how Airliners.net and our partners collect and use data


And at this point I am offered two choice boxes


OK, understood! ...................or...............Manage Options


Except if I don't play ball and select "Manage Options", followed by "AGREE" (to non-specific advertising)....

it then repeats the procedure at the next page, and the next, and the next, and the next.

Since yesterday I have "agreed" to your advertising approximately 130 times, and having to take three steps to achieve just one is wearing a little thin. To the point that I am now broken and done with fighting the system.

Let me know when this bug is fixed; it's pointless visiting this site until that happens.

p.s. is there a better way to report this new "feature"?
p.p.s I haven't changed my cookie or security settings; maybe a Windows update has done that for me? :roll:
Nothing to see here; move along please.

Same here. No changes made in browser settings, last browser update on 2nd of August and this issue only popped up very recently. Ad blocking completely off. No Windows Updates between not having the issue and having the issue.

I'm out as well until this bad user experience is fixed.

After two (maybe three?) days of enduring this problem, I am pleased to report it has spontaneously gone away.

I did notice my PC now has a Windows update pending, and maybe this was downloading in the background, and in some way preventing fresh cookies from landing on my PC?

I am having this pop up every day now, which is getting quite frustrating. This was not the case even recently. I think a week ago, it was not the case.
