When I attempted to access my queue today, I found an ad for your VRV service overlayed over it, that I cannot click out of. This prevents me from doing literally anything with my queue, even just something as simple as scrolling through it.

This is very inconvenient, and I would like to see this fixed posthaste. I use the latest version of Firefox.

I just had it pop up on my queue page a while ago, but it closed without any problem when I clicked the "X" at the upper right corner. Firefox updated just today for me, so I expect I'm on the same version as you.

Sadly, the same does not seem to be working for me, otherwise I wouldn't be making the topic. While I do have the noscripit extension installed, the problem persisted even when I allowed all permissions for the page, so I doubt that's the cause of the trouble either.

You want to try Ublock Origin its a plugin for FF/chrome that lets you block individual elements on a page instead of just turning scrips on and off

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock

If it doesn't automatically block it you can just right click the banner and select block element

I'm quite fine with noscripit and was not looking for replacements for my current method at the moment. The problem is not the existence of the ad itself but the fact that I cannot exit out of it, which again, is not caused by the extension.

Its not a replacement for no-script its a element blocker Its a workaround for your issue since you cant close the popup (and i assume this is something crunchy roll has to fix) your only option is to hide or remove the element from the page

I mean... that's still not really what I'm asking here for at the moment. I'd rather have it fixed without having to deal with the hassle of adding on a new extension and then messing with everything that comes with it.

Well you could do it manually by using inspect element when the popup displays and adding a line of HTML to hide it though editing a page source is more likely than anything to break stuff (at least until you refresh)

You could try disabling noscript completely than refresh the page using ctrl-f5 unlike a normal refresh this ignores the cached internet files and forces everything to redownload.

I can also verify NoScript should not be the cause, as I also use NoScript, with only crunchyroll.com allowed for the page.

I thought perhaps you could simply open the page in another browser, as for me, that pop-up has yet to appear again after I closed it. While it has not reappeared in Firefox, as soon as I opened the queue page in Edge, it was back.



As clearly visible, however, the "X" to close it should be present, but if it isn't appearing for you in Firefox, it appears you indeed have a problem, given that being closed in one browser apparently doesn't carry over to another even if one is signed into their account.

It's not that it's not that the X isn't appearing for me, because it does. It simply just... doesn't actually do what it's supposed to do, even after repeated attempts. It's there, it just doesn't work.

I got it again in Firefox (so much for it going away forever once closed in a specific browser), but again, no problem with the "X" working as it should.

Do you have the same issue if you try a different browser?

Mine is also doing this, I cant access my queue.
The X to close it is there but clicking it does nothing. I'm locked out.

Also using Firefox.

Honestly, I'm glad to hear it's not just me!

As for trying another browser, I really can't answer that question, as Firefox is basically the only browser that I have.

I didn't have the X pop up for me either. The only way it went away for me was clicking it and hitting back. If it pops up again I'll be blocking the element wtih Ublock. I can't believe I actually have to use an adblocker as a premium member here. This is ridiculous
