For un-breaking sites, you want surrogate scripts.

Yes, as johnscript said, what you are looking for here is a job for a content blocking addon such as Adblock Plus or uBlock Origin. NoScript is a security tool, and in security you either trust a site or you don't, there is no "I trust this script from Site X but not that one also from Site X". The concept makes no sense because an un-trustworthy entity could just move the contents of the scripts around the different files...

You are probably looking for something that uBlock/uMatrix can do.

That would be a useful feature because blocking all scripts on the page breaks page rendering on some sites, and allowing only these scripts that are there to make the page render properly will be great.
By the way, what does the option 'Show placeholder icon' do? Because i don't see any placeholder icons on blocked objects and scripts on the page.

Not individual scripts, but by default, individual domains.

Is it possible to choose selectively which script to run on a webpage and which not? I see that there is a option to allow temporarily Blocked Objects, but i don't see such a option for blocked scripts.
