Summary

Block “Before you continue” cookie consent popups on Google and YouTube

After the introduction of GDPR, Google and YouTube began showing cookie consent popups on their websites, making it more difficult to navigate them for residents of any GDPR compliant country

This extension blocks cookie consent popups before they appear, as it can be time consuming to manually close them each time, especially when frequently clearing cookies or starting new incognito/private browsing sessions

Note: to block cookie consent popups in incognito/private browsing sessions, enable "Run in Private Windows" in the Firefox extension settings

This extension is open source and available on GitHub: https://github.com/DavG25/cookie-consent-popup-blocker
