Nowadays some websites won't let you use their platform without disabling your adblocker.
I was recently exposed to a new type of pop-up ad : In order to avoid being closed quickly by the user, a htaccess login dialog box is displayed, while a video or any other sound-based ad is playing in the background.
This kind of pop-up windows are particularly difficult to close, as the login dialog is opening again and again each time you click the cancel button (at least on Firefox).
I didn't investigate further as how it is actually done, but I guess that the web page loads its audio/video element then queries a resource which is protected by htaccess.
- Is there a way to block globally the htaccess login box ?
- If yes, is it possible to filter which websites (domain) are allowed, so I can still connect to my private/work protected domains ?
