Re: [feature request] pref to overwrite default whitelist

Unfortunately WebExtensions can't read about:config prefs either. :(

If there's anything for NoScript to do here, it would likely need to be based on its existing means to detect Tor Browser. (I'm not sure how that detection works.)

Re: Testers Wanted: NoScript UX Overhaul by Simply Secure

I fully agree with barbaz on both points. [...] 2) I prefer the old icon as well. Apparently I didn't make myself clear about the icon. I wasn't expressing a preference about the icon. I'm not sure if I have a preference at this stage. I was just wondering if the specific change I pointed out was a...

Re: Testers Wanted: NoScript UX Overhaul by Simply Secure

I don't feel that I can reasonably make many comments without having the new UI in front of me in a functional NoScript. But a couple things really jumped out at me: 1) Even as an experienced NoScript user, I have NO idea what "Allow affiliated scripts" means. Intuitively, and ignoring a lot of cont...

Re: [feature request] environment variable to clear default whitelist

Sorry but there is currently no way for a WebExtension to read environment variables.

This sounds like a Tor Browser issue, reporting to them was the right place.

Re: NoScript prevents FF from shutting down properly

Are you running Firefox in some kind of sandbox, e.g. firejail?

Re: Menu's and details in noscript missing

That said following the suggested fix which changes about:config and forbiding disabling the tool bar has a strange side effect. When you work (yes work) to open the Noscript menu, web site addresses and status symbol (red green lock) are not displayed instead a blank section (polar bear in snow st...

How does Chrome determine the user's DNS provider? And will that method be able to detect and respect a setup like I have, which is not conventionally used for filtering?

Sandboxie is now free software

Since Sandboxie has been discussed a fair amount in this forum, thought this might be worth noting here - https://www.ghacks.net/2019/09/10/sandb ... en-source/

What would be the point of such bookmarklet? Isn't this just going to break websites, like it would this forum?
