From this question on SO I knew that it's appearance depends on cookies set by google and indeed it appears constantly in Firefox private mode because cookies are not saved in this mode.

How can I block this popup or prevent it from appearing so that I can verify this in private mode ? I have Adblock Plus installed but it does not block it.

One way to do this with Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0 is explained at Wikihow.


Found the rule blocking this popup in Fanboy Annoyances List. It can be added from here. For Adblock Plus users it is also necessary to uncheck "Allow some non-intrusive advertising" checkbox. See this github issue for more details.
