Many who have applied for unemployment since the “outbreak” of COVID-19 still have not received any benefits.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and the governor has promised a fix for the website but has struggled to deliver on that promise.

Due to traffic issues, you may have noticed that those who oversee the website have implemented a virtual waiting queue. The queue displays a bar that seemingly never moves.

Reader Jim Collins asked, “Do they think just because we lost our jobs that we have time to sit in front of the computer for hours to watch a progress bar?”

The good news is that there is a way to bypass that annoying script on the state website.

While you have the Chrome browser open, simply go to the vertical ellipsis (three dots stacked in the upper right-hand corner). Left-click, then go to more tools, then extensions.

Once there, type in NoScript (see photo). Install that plugin and you will be able to log right into the website with no issues. The plugin/addon can also be used with Firefox. The extension can be uninstalled at any time.

You are welcome!!!
