Re: RIP µMatrix?

^ I got it through modifying uBlock Origin code, adding this as a built-in resource. But it would be much better to do it with stock uBlock Origin. How to? This cannot be done without the replacement document being a web accessible resource. The replacement document has to communicate with uBO's ma...

Re: CNAME Uncloaking

uBlock Origin has that feature for privacy reasons No, I added this feature in uBO for informed consent and control reason. uBO is not a "privacy tool", this is reductive, uBO is a wide spectrum content blocker which features and especially advanced features has both privacy and security benefits. ...

precipitous declines in usage ever since "speed" rules all, er, Quantum.) Quantum is what is saving Firefox -- clinging to legacy code forever is a sure way to obsolescence.

Re: Using uBlock Origin to replace NoScript surrogates?

In testing, I only had to set uBlock Origin to block an affected resource in dynamic filtering... and the surrogate ran, even though NoScript was also blocking the resource! If NoScript blocked the request, there should be no redirection, as blocking has precedence over redirecting. Consider two ex...

Re: Using uBlock Origin to replace NoScript surrogates?

Does this work even if uBlock Origin didn't do the blocking of the resource? No. The order to redirect can only be made at onBeforeRequest or onHeadersReceived time, so by the time another extension cancels a network request, it's too late for uBO to redirect, as onErrorOccurred is observational on...

Not a uBO issue, this was most likely caused by NoScript and fixed when it stopped using filterResponseData in this commit:

Re: µMatrix thread

Btw, here's someone else encountering the same dilemma--with no really satisfying solution in sight. I don't know why you say "no really satisfying solution in sight". The poster found the actual proper solution: create a rule that will override the broader one. That's how uMatrix works, set narrow...

I'm not finding a way to click through this redirect directly from the uMatrix block. Not seeing anything on the uMatrix block to allow.

off-topic discussion comparing NS & µMatrix - split from t=23656

µMatrix UI has a very steep learning curve (being intended only for advanced users, unlike NoScript which is supposed to be accessible to intermediate users). You exaggerate in an unfair way, uMatrix is no more difficult to use than NoScript. The matrix is a pure what-you-see-is-what-you-get, with ...

Re: https://www.easygov.swiss escapes noScript

Normally I see the site and all the dependant sites like google analytics Scripts from google-analytics.com and other 3rd-party servers are loaded through the googletagmanager.com script.

Re: NSA breaks UBlock Origin

Ok, so this is entirely due to uB0 and I have both confirmed it on my end and also there are issues on uB0's tracker that show the developer is not accepting responsibility for it and is deferring all issues to Mozilla. uBO is a WebExtensions, and as such it only calls browserAction.setTitle.

Re: NSA breaks UBlock Origin

uBO 1.14.8 is a WebExtensions (since 1.14.0).
NSA 3.5a15 is a legacy extension.

Maybe NSA is blocking stuff from `moz-extension://`?

Re: Allow now acts like Forbid and vice versa

All seems fine to me. That page creates many script tags dynamically. If javascript is globally disabled for that page, these script tags are not going to be created, and hence won't be reported in NoScript menu. uBO reports more than just script resources, it reports the domain/hostname of whatever...
