why does this pop up whenever I am on google? There is no way I will click yes because there isn't even any reason why I would need DRM video support on a search engine
@Ste1lar hm extension maybe? I don't have that many though and all of them are pretty big and open source.
This also only happened after I deleted a lot of cookies and stuff from google.
@webfreak are you on firefox
@Ste1lar well it wasn't an extension and it seems to happen when google loads its big one file obfuscated JS file
soo I guess bug in firefox linked at the end in a thread on that toot.
@draeath I'm not using google regularly, I'm just sometimes doing some searches when I don't find anything on DDG, and that's when it pops up.
I find it highly dubious why it even pops up in the first place. The DRM after all is some proprietary binary blob which could run any code on my PC.
I will check if there are any extensions injecting anything into there.
@webfreak https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1451762 maybe this bug?
@draeath looks like that bug. It's not the biggest problems because so far it only happens on google but it's still worrying why it even happens.
@webfreak If you get bored, hit F12 and look at all the resources the page loads. Maybe something will jump out at you?
@draeath it happens when loading this URL: https://www.google.com/xjs/_/js/k=xjs.s.en_GB.cQ9nDsVBJtY.O/ck=xjs.s.QUBYOV7wZ0c.L.F4.O/m=Fkg7bd,HcFEGb,IvlUe,MC8mtf,OF7gzc,RMhBfe,T4BAC,TJw5qb,TbaHGc,Y33vzc,cdos,cr,hsm,iDPoPb,jsa,mvYTse,tg8oTe,uz938c,vWNDde,ws9Tlc,yQ43ff,d,csi/am=AAAAAIsAZt0AQP4PIgAAQB0DAAAC2gQbLBCGhAyiwoQCIA/d=1/dg=2/ct=zgms/rs=ACT90oGbUNJkEOiH8hywa9OGxr48eXHa4g
which loads this additional URL:
however after just blocking that additional url it still shows the DRM popup
when blocking the first URL it goes away
@draeath so uh yeah I don't think that's so easy to debug unless I can replicate that outside of google which I don't really want to try right now lol
@webfreak There's code in there for the whole search UI, looks like, and I bet what you are seeing is related to the code used to render video result thumbnails.
... and so on.
@draeath so do most people already have that enabled or why does that pop up only for so few?
@draeath also don't have DRM enabled
@draeath I disabled all extensions and it still pops up.
It doesn't pop up when in private browsing mode though.
