I installed noscript just right now and I am in trouble with in the subject mentioned issue.
The software works great. I have already marked couple of websites and services as untrusted. So it happened now that I can't play the videos on my fav news website [it needs flash player]. I have been searching for a list which shows the blacklist of websites and where I can re-enable some services being essential for this news site.
Before I address the second part of your question, did you know that you can use the context menu to reverse your untrusted
choices, without you having to manually edit your whitelist?http://noscript.net/faq#qa3_10
So, in the Options I have found solely a white list, can you please explain how to get and edit the black list [list of untrusted and forbidden websites]?
There is no blacklist as such. Untrusted, not forbidden sites are appended to the whitelist file in the NS directory and if you want to view or edit blacklist items, you have to do so manually. The most straightforward method is to export your whitelist using the Export button at the bottom of the Whitelist tab, then open it in a text editor. All untrusted domains are listed after the [UNTRUSTED] heading.
I strongly advise you, for security and usability, to use the menu within the context of the actual site where you want to change these permissions, and to use manual editing only as a last resort.
What is anyway the difference between untrusted and forbidden websites?
It's just a language quirk. To NS, when you begin using it, the entire web, except for the default whitelist, is untrusted
. In the menu, sites that you never want to allow
are, by definition, untrusted
. All you are doing by marking them untrusted
is telling NS not to display the choice to allow them. However, in a single session, you can allow
site, then forbid
it - for that session - as many times as you like.
is not telling NS to permanently remove an item from the menu, it is only changing your on-the-fly allow
