Web site preferences in help browser

6 views (last 30 days)
I just installed R2021a, and selected the web option for the help. On every session, the first time I start the help browser (e.g. using 'doc min') I get a pop up that asks me to select a region. When you click on the "select a region" button your broswer is opened with that web site, and then you get a cookie consent to agree to. This is really irritating. Closing the popup with the cross in the top right hand corner is slightly better, but the fact this shows up each session is still annoying. Pic below.
How can I stop it?

In my web browser (Firefox) the regional selection is remembered between sessions and I don't get this problem. In the MATLAB help browser it doesn't seem to store this and I always get the pop up window.
