Remember site notice dismissals

  • Problem: When browsing Wikipedia with Firefox in private mode, the same site notices pop up again in each new session after logging in, presumably because dismissing site notice(s) is recorded in (a) cookie(s) that get discarded after closing Firefox. This also happens when using multiple browsers or devices.
  • Who would benefit: Registered users using session cookies and/or multiple browsers or devices.
  • Proposed solution: Record the dismissal of a site notice on the server as part of the user data so that this information is preserved between sessions and identical in multiple browsers and devices.
