Recently, every time I hit a new page in Stack Exchange, whether it be the list of questions in a given forum, or a specific question, I get a pop-up like this:
Accept all cookies
I am able to click "accept" and it will go away, but it comes back as soon as I reload the page or view a new topic. UMatrix shows it's a script from
cdn.cookielaw.org and that it's trying to set a 3rd-party cookie.
My guess is that since I'm blocking 3rd-party cookies and scripts, it just keeps trying.
Given how bad we know 3rd-party cookies are, and how they are used to violate privacy, track people across sites, etc., why on Earth would Stack Exchange do this?
Customize settingsbutton doesn't do anything. Actually, neither does
Accept all cookiesapparently, since the popup comes back on every tab. I have cookies enabled...
