Google recently introduced the "Personalization settings & cookies" page when you visit it for the "first" time, e.g. when you browse to https://www.google.com/ you get

enter image description here

and if you click "Customise" you are redirected to https://consent.google.com/d?continue=https://www.google.com/ where you have to manually click "Off" for every option, while allowing all cookies is (of course!) just one click.

It only pops up once - if you allow cookies. However, I don't want to allow cookies from Google and I don't want to accept any more of their "improvements" than I absolutely must to use the service, which means that I have to go through this every time I want to use some Google service.

Is there a browser extension (preferably for Firefox) or Greasemonkey script or similar that will automate clicking "Customise" and then clicking "Off" for everything on the following page for me?

You can try the Firefox extension "I don't care about cookies". It definitely makes the prompt go away, but I'm not sure if it actually accepts or rejects the cookies. On my system I don't get any cookies by using Google, but I'm also using a VPN with NetShield and the strict cookie policy in Firefox, so might be either of those that does the magic.

  • Thanks, that does make the prompt go away (I have to allow it in Incognito mode). It probably just accepts the cookies, though, which is not ideal.
