Firefox suddenly unusable.

I am suddenly getting the following error message: "We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser)." Firefox is now unusable. I have searched "Settings" and can find nothing about "Content Filtering," "Shields," or "Brave Browser." Can you tell me what is going on here?

You probably don't get this message on Firefox's built-in home page / new tab page. Presumably it is from a website you are visiting that is angry that you have an ad or cookie blocker.

Since Firefox doesn't have a built-in EasyList Cookie filter, is it possible that one of your add-ons has such a thing?

You can check for issues with Enhanced Tracking Protection. Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages like blocked content.

Disable all your extensions. Start with any cookie blockers like "I Don't Care About Cookies" (IDCAC) or uBlock Origin.

Can you show us the issue and provide steps to replicate?
