Re: noscript.net NoScript Quantum links

I have seen the same (typo) at AMO. On AMO, at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/ The link behind the text: "IMPORTANT A Basic NoScript 10 Guide" is also pointing to page two (of the thread which is the Guide). Linking to the start of the 'Guide thread' would be better: https:/...

Re: The Future of Developing Firefox Add-ons

A long time ago, on Wed Aug 26, 2015 8:38 pm (above) My native.js approach, which is linked from the WebExtensions FAQ itself and called by the lead developer of the WebExtensions APIs "a good proposal I'd like to start prototyping soon", allows add-ons to do everything the browser (whose ...

Re: RSS feed reader broken in Nightly (49.x and 50.x)

I can confirm what JustAnotherGuy said: Found out the fix. Whitelist "about:feeds" plural form. Not "about:feed". Another test. An Aurora (Fx 49.0a2) Profile with NoScript 2.9.0.12rc1 (20 May 2016) and RequestPolicy Continued 1.0.beta12.2. Also, e10s 'switched off'. The NoScript ...

Re: RSS feed reader broken in Nightly (49.x and 50.x)

Giorgio, I don't think allowing "about:feed" is the 'whole fix'. On Sunday 2016-07-24 I repeated my 4 tests (see above) after manually adding "about:feed" to the NoScript Whitelist. I had the same results (i.e. Fx 49 and Fx 50 - feed 'still broken'). As all 4 profile ALSO have Re...

Re: Cookies can render secure websites vulnerable

Three points: 1. The URL in the first post (thestack dot com). When I clicked the link there seemed to be 'something trying to download'. I used another Profile [which was also using Fx 43.0a2 (2015-09-27)] and used startpage https://startpage.com to search for the URL thestack com security This fou...

Re: BBC iplayer wants to run amazon scripts by direct IP add

My point there is that the fact it's registered to Amazon doesn't mean much, because Amazon AWS hosts other people's content, meaning *not* Amazon stuff. I agree, barbaz put it better than I did. I've been talking about the likelihood of the BBC hiring [computer] resources from Amazon (for short-te...

Re: Temporarily allow by default not working in FFDE 42

Also, worth checking that 'e10s are still disabled'. Some time in the past week or so ... Mozilla 'forced on' the use of e10s AKA Electrolysis AKA "multi-process Firefox" a few days ago in Fx 42.0a2. I have 'turned it off' (again) on all my Fx 42 Profiles because I want to continue to use ...

Re: BBC iplayer wants to run amazon scripts by direct IP add

2 of 2 3. Now, your initial question: about why the BBC might use 52.x.x.x in some situations and why nobody seems to have noticed the connections to 52.x.x.x I don't know. Here are my thoughts, they include several 'wild speculations' - they are just ideas, could well be totally wrong. 3.1 The BBC ...

Re: BBC iplayer wants to run amazon scripts by direct IP add

Richard, you are welcome, I enjoy a puzzle. 1 of 2 Three additional points. 1. Extension for blocking outgoing requests. The advantage of an Extension to 'block requests' is the UI is easy to use and, with RPC, it is easy to see 'which domains are blocked'. I'm much less familiar with uBlock. With R...
