Why does the emergency web popup remain active after the “Hide” button is clicked?

The emergency web popup remains active even after the “Hide” button is clicked.

The emergency web popup uses a web cookie to record its visibility. If you click on the “Hide” button, the popup tries to set the visibility value stored in this cookie to “false” (i.e., “hidden”). If you delete the popup cookie, or you set your browser to decline cookies for any UIC webpage that opts into using the emergency popup, then the popup will not disappear when the “Hide” button is clicked.
