    I noticed that on many websites that I visit (but not all), the consent management windows (for setting up cookies) keep showing up. This occurs on macrumors.com, so I guess it is a good idea to ask here.
    This makes the browsing experience miserable.
    Is there a way to set these once and for all, for all websites ?

    This happens to me a lot, too, but I'm pretty sure it's because I have set my browser (Firefox) to clear history (including cookies) when Firefox is closed. Are you clearing your browser's cookies? (I assume websites just set a special cookie after you've agreed to them using cookies.)

    Thanks, I was thinking about something along these lines but I am referring to issues observed in a mode where I expect safari not to clear browsing data. I searched the safari options but I did not find anything like that.

    Of course, I expect this to happen when I use private tabs (I often do), but am also observing some such issues in non private tabs, and cannot seem to find an option to prevent cookies from being removed.
