“I don’t care about cookies” breaks ORCID — easy fix

I have discovered that the Firefox add-on “I don’t care about cookies” breaks ORCID in the sense that the ‘visibility buttons’ on ORCID are not shown when editing the ORCID record. After experimenting a bit, I discovered that it was the said add-on that somehow breaks the page. There’s an easy fix: white-list orcid.org by visiting the page, right-clicking “I don’t care about cookies” > “disable on orcid.org”. Done.

  1. i’m the author of i don’t care about cookies. if you want, send me an email with some more details about this bug in it (i don’t see it myself when i visit orcid.org). cheers and thanks for being my user :)

  2. Thanks for getting in touch; this only is an issue when you log in at ORCID and try to set the visibility of publications (etc.). The public record works fine.
