  1. THANK YOU SO MUCH – you are a genius – just done this on my iPad – been an issue for over a year!!!! Bit of a different way to do it – need to disable third party tracking of cookies in the Settings/Safari tab – but it’s finally worked!

  2. Unfortunately it doesn’t help me. I checked in Chrome 91.0.4472.114 and Chrome Canari 93.0.4558.0 and in Firefox 89.0.2. They all show the same. But CentBrowser (based on Chrome 86.0.4240.198) don’t show this message. What could be the reason?
