Update: Solved! Thank you Deividas
https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1892546#msg61825307




This widget on the lower right annoys people when it's on their lists, but I can't figure out what ap or extension causes it.

I've never seen it on my own list or any of my computers or mobile devices. Does anyone know?

I'm trying to find the source so I can recreate the problem myself, then I can write the code to remove it via a script or add it to layout CSS then it won't be a problem on people's lists anymore. It's a reoccurring issue that started a month ago.

I heard it is caused by Adblock Plus, but when I install the extension in browsers I don't see the widget at all.

It comes from google captcha.

I can give you the css or Js to hide it of you want
$("div.grecaptcha-badge").hide();

I've ublock origin and a bunch of privacy related extensions,I see that icon all the time

How do I install it so I can see it for myself like all the other people?

I'm not sure if this will make you start seeing the privacy box on mal or not

I can give you the whole html for the box, this will be better and easier I guess, then you can add that to any website, so you can use the browser dev tools to get the element ids,classes etc...

* I see that even with all my extensions besides tampermonkey disabled... When ghostery is enabled it hides the box on my end

No it didn't work. And I've used ublock origin for a long time but I have never seen that privacy widget from the opening post. What I need is whatever ap or extension creates the privacy widget from the opening post.

Your code removes this, which I've seen before its on the site by default but doesn't appear on lists for me. I already have a CSS script to remove this actually.



But that's not what I'm looking for. I'm trying to find what causes this in people's browsers


It might be related, what I can give someone with the problem the code to remove the Google Recaptha and see if that removes this mysterious privacy widget too

Got it

"what I can give someone with the problem the code to remove the Google Recaptha and see if that removes this mysterious privacy widget too"
It will...

What's the user anime list link for that bugged privacy box? Maybe I can check this

This is their list, and several people have had the problem, even in other browsers. Which is why I think it might be related to some kind of ap installing the widget in every browser, rather than a single extension. Or they are using the same extension in every browser.

Thanks for the link.

I can't see the privacy box on any animelists I guess, I don't know why

$("div.grecaptcha-badge")[0]
is equal undefined on animelists on my end

I tried to reload the page with and without my extensions disabled and I still couldn't see that box.

I think that this is a mal bug, I always thought that this was an css misconfig

I don't think that some "malicious extension" would add that

If people were really "using the same extension in every browser" I think that a good amount of people would already know what is the extension name

*Could you send me a friend solicitation?

Yes I have been searching forever, and I have never seen the widget myself. I have used many aps and extensions, and none of them seem to have it. Without being able to reproduce the problem myself, I can't pinpoint the exact code to remove it. I'm fairly convinced the widget comes from some ap like a VPN maybe.

I am wondering if my antivirus is blocking the widget though.

Also, what I'm thinking is a code in the CSS resizes this widget. Maybe it is using a footer CSS selector, and is being influenced by those codes in the layouts.

Yes, it may also be a MAL bug related to the footer, perhaps. I say this because the footer codes are resized in that layout people are seeing the widget on, and the widget mysteriously grows in size on those layouts. They also see the widget on other sites, like Imgur.

I've never seen it on my own list, or anywhere in fact. Other people see it on their lists but I can't figure out what causes it. I don't see it on their list either though, which is why I think something installed causes it for their own machine

MAL already blocked the ips of that most vpns uses, so I also doubt that this is the case.

I also don't think that antivirus can modify websites that much, once for my total rewatched times script a user reported a bug to me saying that his kapersky antivirus was blocking the script from running for whatever reason... We were both surprised because the antivirus was the problem...

I know that this is what you are looking for, I was also going to check that same thing on that user animelist, but this box weirdly appears anywhere to me, besides anime lists...
