On a desktop W10 pc, neither Firefox nor IE would work.
The new Chrom/Edge worked first time.
All seems normal now.

TrustArc

TrustArc has recently arrived when starting PPRuNe. What is it and why?
Thanks RG

Cookie options come up every time I use Pprune - why?

Every time I open PPRuNe I get faced with a page full of cookie options which I have to yes/no and save before I can proceed, it is getting a bit tiresome.

How can I stop this happening?

I suspect that using Firefox in "Private" browsing mode has something to do with it....... as in history and or cookies are cleared at the end of every session.

Machine OS is Linux Mint, I suspect that is not part of the issue.

You have answered your own question, I think. Either use a standard session and save the minimum cookies required to access the site, or use a private session and enter your preferences every time.

Given that FF is your browser, you may find that Privacy Badger could help, though, even with a private session. You should be able to work out quite easily which domain needs to be red in PB.

it won't help with having to enter your username and password every time, though.

As I don't need to log in every session, just those times that I am moved to add something so I am quite happy to log in when required.

I will investigate Privacy Badger? whatever that is!

Thanks.

Rans6.....

ps - I know that privacy browsing reduces the amount of crap you get left in your machine but I am not really sure of the full effect of using it. It did seem to be a good idea when I started it ..........

Privacy Badger seems to be doing a good job on PPRuNe ish. It has stopped the annoying popup cookie option form from happening but when I log in and try to do "Reply" to a thread I get offered the "stay on page" or "leave page" option box popup. PB claims to stop tracking cookies, why does this stop the cookie option form on PPRuNe? It does not stop it on the TV Freeview guide I use most days........ again, why?

"stay on page" or "leave page" option box popup
That seems to be a CloudFlare anti-DDoS artefact. Nothing can be done. We all get it.

PB claims to stop tracking cookies, why does this stop the cookie option form on PPRuNe?
PB works by blocking tracking cookies only, or blocking entire domains. If you (for example) block the entire trustarc domain, then you will get nothing from that domain, including the GDPR pop-up. In most cases that's too much baby with the bathwater, but sometime (as in this case) it is appropriate. I suspect that your Freeview guide domain isn't being completely blocked in PB, just actual tracking cookies. Best to RTFM to understand the tools at your disposal.

I have started to suffer from this tiresome popup, I have tried different computers, different browsers and I don't even have to log-in just open the PPRuNe page and up it comes. Best solution Goodbye PPRuNe!

As said above, your browser needs to accept cookies.

Or block the offending domain.

pprune login cookies

It seems that logging in to PPRuNe now requires what seems to be a complex cookie acceptance process.

Despite going through the long and irritating list of all the potential advertisers etc, and turning everything OFF, and then saving my preferences ... the pesky cookies seem to have turned themselves ON again the next time I log in.

Why ?

This is causing me stress, and is making me unhappy. I'm now going for a lie down.

Buck up! I always try a bottle wine before I lie down. Try eating some cookies as well and all will go away

Angry Pprune cookies

It’s a pain in the proverbial.
i regularly clear out “cookies”, history and other files automatically and this means you have go through the cookies acceptance nausea every time you visit PPRuNe. My answer is fewer visits to PPRuNe!

I just scroll to the bottom of the cookie list and select 'reject all' and then close on the second window, still irritating I don't visit as much due to this.

Ccleaner with whatever you want in the accept box?

I run the cleaner a couple of times a day. What's odd is a friend of mine doesn't even give it a thought. W10 and hours a day . . . Oh, and a lifetime with Big Blue. What's his secret?

A friend, a blond, used her laptop to store all her photos. It eventually wouldn't go. It hadn't got enough elbow room to run Ccleaner. One of her attempts to get by the impass was to raise it 4" from the table and drop it. (I used Ubuntu on a stick.)

See my suggestion above regarding Privacy Badger and domain blocking.
