I have an account at Walmart.com. After the last time I placed an order, something changed. Now, just for simply going to their online site to browse, the page immediately rolls over to a login page. I cannot access the site simply to shop at all, without Walmart forcing me to sign in. This is annoying enough that I am considering canceling my Walmart account and shopping with other retailers. There is plenty of competition out there. This does not happen (as far as I know) with Chrome or edge, the browsers that do not prefer to use.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Success. but for the wrong reason. After I did as suggested with "privacy.globalprivacycontrol.enabled to false." , I went to privacy settings and re- cleared all cache, cookies and data a second time. Then I set my privacy and security settings to STRICT. I did not want to do that since I do not go to questionable sites. But it worked. As I said before, this never happened on Amazon, Tractor Supply, Rock Auto or countless other sites I visit. Only Walmart...

So to keep WALMART from demanding this, I have to set security settings high. My opinion of Walmart.com just went way down. They are too nosey.

Global Privacy Control (GPC) is known to cause this which can be enabled with extensions like Disconnect.

You can disable it by going to about:config in the address bar and changing privacy.globalprivacycontrol.enabled to false.

It was already set to false. I even updated the boolean string. No luck. A .png is attached. But thanks. I think this may be something on Walmart's end.

I can browse the Walmart site without login. Does it still happen in Troubleshoot Mode?

It works for me with the default Standard Tracking Protection from a clean state without any cookies or site data.
