Yahoo Consent Screen

Since my server is in Germany, according to EU laws sites should show cookie consent pop-up to users. So because of this Software can not even start scraping Yahoo. Here the consent screen of yahoo:

So software can not detect screen and can not click ACCEPT and because of this it can not pass consent screen. So if you make a quick fix, without waiting the next update, it would be very very good.

    Sure, there are issues like this around caused by the EU law and not only limited to Yahoo.  Simply use proxy ips that are not from the EU.  USA is fine, basically anywhere not in the EU is fine.

    @loopline thanks for clarifying...I didn't know that this is just shown in EU, so a US proxy would still allow me to parse yahoo....good to know!
    Thanked by 1loopline
