Why does this addon not block the cookie notification that pops up on this site please?

It does block the cookie notice for me. Try clearing your browser cache maybe this will solve the issue. But why do you need a separate add-on for this? Doesn't your ad blocker have a cookie notice filter?

I know this extention from this video below. Remove the one you have in your post above.

The one you shared is I Don't Care About Cookies, and that is owned by Avast (Gen Digital). Before sharing extensions for others to use, please conduct your own research. It has many 1 stars reviews since being sold to a company that was caught red-handed selling user data.

Discussion found here: Update - Avast acquires I don't care about Cookies browser extension

Ok, but do you mean that ThioJoe guy does not study do his homework before making such videos? I did trust him, thats why.

@Ink

Oh, you are right, forgive me on that. I thought he is the best, so I myself did not try looking around for more info. I did now install it. And removed the one by Avast.

That's exactly the case, this is the same guy that used to spam youtube with nonsense such as
and is only now a "changed man". Also ironic he has a tool on github for removing spam comments on your channel, too bad spam detection wasn't better while he was in his prime.
