Right, I get that you're grumpy, but it's a little weird talking to an AO3 user as if they're an AO3 dev with familiarity with your specific issue. All I know was your original comment and I was merely trying to be helpful. :(
I didn't write the original comment assuming any familiarity with anything other than this post and the way the site makes the request. The post says this is happening everywhere. It's not. And not even on all the compliant sites. That was my original comment. I appreciate you having suggestions, but it wasn't a bug report or I wouldn't have had to come back and tell you I'm doing the opposite of private browsing.
