Why the hell does FFNET insist on showing me the Google Translate navbar at the top of every page no matter how many times I turn it off and tell it that, no, I'm not interested in translating the site? Does anybody know of any way to make sure the damn thing stops showing up?

That sounds like a browser extension glitch. Are you using Chrome?

Nope, Firefox. And the thing shows up literally only on FFNET, and if I close it on a page and then load a new one it appears again, which is why I'm pretty sure it has to do with FFNET and not with something on my end.

That's extremely odd. It's not happening in my browser, & I'm using Firefox, too. However, I live in the USA, so it could be something to do with how FFn displays according to your referer or country settings??? IDK

Someone else is having the same problem:

And a few years ago someone else suggests installing the noscript addon:

Yes, my computer/browser is set to a language that's not English. I added a filter to my adblock script and it seems to be working... thanks for the links!
