The use-case doesn't looks to be the ideal one.However we can probably think of some alternatives like probably turning off global mbox setting in mbox.js.
Thanks for the reply.
Is there a way to turn off the global mbox just for the current session?
The desire is to have an automated test run on the production site. There are specific things it will look for that may get disrupted by AB testing and we want to avoid that.
As far as I know, you can't disable it as you would like, but I see why you want it. Could you setup your automated test, to re-map the at.js/mbox.js file to a empty js-file on your site, to avoid requests to target?
If you are using the latest at.js (version 0.9.6 or later) you can set a session cookie that will disable mboxes. From the browser console you can run: document.cookie = "mboxDisable=1; path=/";
Hope that helps!
That sounds like exactly what we are looking for, unfortunately, we're on the mbox.js implementation.
I'll look into upgrading. I'm not sure why we're not using at.js :(
