    Select the option you want and click ok. 

    It should then disappear. Sometimes I find I get the ‘fat finger’ problem and I accidentally hit the Cookies button at the bottom right of the screen and then it pops up again ... so maybe you’re doing that by mistake?

  • Thank you @Dovefromabove but I’ve tried accepting/rejecting/options and everything in between and it just won’t go away .... I know I’m a numpty with technology but I’ve always managed to get rid of them before.  Any ideas?

    It pops up when I log in on OHs laptop ... I think it’s cos he runs Firefox ... but after popping up about 3 times it settles down.

    Same here, I select reject all, it goes away, if I have a particularly bad day with it I instal and adblocker,  then after a couple days uninstall it.

  • Thank you @Dovefromabove @Lyn I’ll have my other half take a look later as he’s much more techy than me.  It comes up every time I go from one thread/post to another and every time I log on.  I’m sure it’s something I’m doing wrong and can easily be resolved but it’s driving me potty! 😩

    I usually just reload the page and it remembers I've told it to eff off already.
    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.

    I had to change the browser on my tablet as it kept forgetting my setting. It was very difficult to get rid of the pop-up as it wouldn't respond to button presses. One interesting thing was the huge list of companies that your data would be sold to, none of them in this country.
