Instead of the privacy pop-up only appearing once (on the index page), it now comes up on every page I go to! It's only on this site. Please help!

If I use https it just defaults to the non-secure version.

That seems to have stopped the pop-up, but it still says the site's not completely secure. Thanks!

Happened to me a while back. Luckily I remembered. 'Not completely secure' probably means images or tracking cookies. Depends how your browser handles it.

This is still happening for me, even after clearing the cache and reloading the site

This is making the site almost unusable. Not matter what I do or what device I use (two different iPads and a PC) the Privacy Warning appears on every page

Clear the cache and reload the https site, not the http one

I do the same and also use NoScript in Firefox. Faster, Cleaner, Safer. Not easy to explain concisely in the forum though.

I well know what you mean. I use Firefox with Ghostery and uBlock Origin or TOR.

Difficult to explain without sounding like a condescending techie-nerd.  Which I am, when all is said and done.

On Android, I use my own app; happy to share to the source, if anybody is interested. I always meant to add some functionality, but never got round to it.

Christ this is annoying.  Is there nothing that can be done to fix the problem?

It's every time i'm on. Click accept then next time just the same.

 Why would Qualcast lawnmowers need to know if I'm looking at Villa.
