How can I disable the social media bars that show up on so m

Post by jmt356 »

How can I disable the social media bars that show up on so many web sites? For example, at https://www.efile.com/tax/do-i-need-to- ... ax-return/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, several social media icons, including Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, appear on the left side of the screen, obscuring the text on the web page. Many other pages on the web have similar buttons, which follow the viewer no matter where on the screen he navigates to. Is there a way to disable these?
Regards,

JMT

The web page hides the buttons if you reduce the width of the browser window, so you could experiment with this width.
Apart from that, the buttons are an integral part of the web page, so I don't think you can disable or hide them without interfering with the functionality of the page.
