In any case, so long as you have a copy of your old Profile, you can always refer back to it for any need.
I had a look at the storage-sync.sqlite file and it does contain the information of trusted/untrusted websites. I've reinstalled Firefox (FF 60.0) and replaced prefs.js and storage-sync.sqlite in the profile folder and it works nicely. Thanks !

And... and that might be it?
(Longer times past, their used to be a separate directory/file for ABE related settings, but I don't think that is the case in NoScript 5.x.)
I was on a recent version of Firefox, sth. like FF 58 or 59. I checked the prefs.js file and it does not contain the blacklist/whitelist information.

OOOPS.

You're on FF 52.
In that case, NoScript settings are in prefs.js.

[RESOLVED] Manually Backup NoScript Configuration

Hello,

My Firefox crashed a few days ago. It can no longer start as usual so I prepare to reinstall it. I would like to preserve all NoScript configurations. The description on https://noscript.net/faq#qa2_4 suggests using the "Export/Import" function. However I am unable to do so since I cannot start my Firefox. How can I preserve the NoScript configurations manually and apply it after my Firefox is reinstalled?
