A legal requirement under GDPR legislation is for websites to provide a positive opt-in method of agreeing to cookies. This is usually done by displaying a pop-up dialog asking the user to accept cookies by pressing a button on that dialog.
In a lot of cases where this type of popup occurs focus remains with the main website window underneath making it impossible to click on the ‘Accept’ or other button on the pop-up dialog and continue on that site.
Since most sites will not allow you to continue until you have dismissed the dialog - either by accepting or otherwise dismissing the dialog box - it is impossible to use the default Sailfish browser on these sites.
An example sites where this occurs is www.toodledo.com, but there are many others I’ve experienced.
the only way around this problem is to use another, Android, browser, to access the site.
Website with a pop-up dialog box
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Type in the URL for the offending web site; wait for it to load and display the pop-up
- Try to dismiss the pop-up
- Focus remains with the underlying window, so you are unable to continue
Pop-up dismissed when relevant action done (e.g. ‘Accept Cookies’
Impossible to dismiss pop-up dialog
