Hi,

I use Firefox Developer Edition as my default testing browser. I have it set up to clear the cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. For my normal browsing I use regular Firefox (currently version 120.0). I was looking through the settings on 121.0 beta Firefox Beta November 21, 2023 and saw it has the very useful Cookie Banner Blocker: When a site asks if they can use cookies in private browsing mode, Firefox Developer Edition automatically refuses for you. Only on supported sites.

According to the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cookie-banner-reduction?as=u&utm_source=inproduct this was introduced in Firefox version 120. However I do not see it in my regular Firefox 120.0. Both browsers say that "Your browser is being managed by your organization." I can change the proxy settings in regular Firefox 120, but not in Firefox Developer beta 121. Although both have the same sentinelone 2023.1.4.650 extension set.

The initial release is for German versions of Firefox and the feature runs only in private windows: Block cookie banners on Firefox. I don't know whether there are preferences to relax the test restrictions.

You can enable the Cookie Banner Blocker by going to about:config and changing cookiebanners.service.mode and cookiebanners.service.mode.privateBrowsing to 1 (reject-only).
