Help…please…this Privacy and Cookies banner is driving me insane…

…on my own darn Blog I repeatedly need to click the Accept and Close button just to have the banner reappear….why oh why? Other blogs seem to have this banner go away on my subsequent visits nope, not my own one…like it doesn’t register that I’ve clicked anything. Even when I preview posts, check appearance…anything.

Where have I missed a step? I’ve added the widget, set the defaults and can’t see anything else to be done other than to save.
