Re: Huge Number of Console Messages

e10 is Electrolysis - splitting Firefox into multiple system processes so that crashing on a page doesn't crash the whole thing. It required reengineering of many extensions to pass messages around between the different parts instead of being able to directly access things. And CPOWs are, as I under...

Re: Guardian page causes 100% CPU Usage, UI Lockup

If you need a workaround while waiting, you could block it with ABE:

Code: Select all

Site .facebook.com .facebook.net
Deny from .theguardian.com
This should prevent the XSS filter from choking, but will also kill off the Facebook Connect functionality (on that one site), if that matters to you.

Re: Scammers Jamming Your Browser

You could neuter a specific site with a surrogate script, if you can identify critical functions that you can break.

Global neuter...well, I guess it's possible to use a surrogate to globally kill off the relevant file API, but that could break legitimate sites.

Re: XSS Protection

Why are you telling people to download something, and why have you labelled this topic 'XSS Protection', which has nothing to do with downloads?

Re: NoScript 10: Too many changes at the same time

To my mind this mix of absolutely necessary changes with additional ones that would not have been required now, was no good decision. It was simply too much of new things at the same time. An overkill. I think you have a mistaken impression that it was possible to retain some elements of the old UI...

What do you mean by this? "Scripts Globally Allowed"? Or perhaps "Allow All This Page"?

Re: Ver 10.1.5.7

If you're able to run NoScript on Firefox 52 at all, it's NoScript 5.

Re: NoScript Classic support

It doesn't sound like much of a change? Firefox 52 ESR will be supported a bit longer, OK.

Re: Make all temnporary permissions permanent button

The button you're looking for is the clock icon on each site entry.

Re: Whole Firefox messed up??

If you're going to stay on an older Firefox in order to use classic NoScript, then your best choice is Firefox 52 ESR, since it will continue to receive security patches.

Re: Not getting huge lag anymore since I stopped using NS

I thought addons never cause lag cause of the new changes in firefox 57? :D I'm not sure who assured you of that? Performance problems from NoScript are most often the XSS filter, which has certainly undergone significant change with NS 10 and is a work in progress. Please use Firefox 52 ESR with c...

Re: how to stop the XSS notifications (and block by default)

NoScript does block everything by default. What's making you think otherwise?
