Re: Websites detecting blockers now?

Interestingly, I have no adblocking software; yet, if the top-level script is allowed, I still get the "Adblocking software detected" message. Temp-disabling RequestPolicy didn't change that. So apparently, the fact that NS blocks the ad scripts convinces them that you have ABP or similar ...

Re: NoScriptSTS.db-xxxx.tmp

if i kill the sandboxed FF, the updating and adding files stops in the non-sandboxed one, so there seems to be an interaction across the sandbox boundaries. Most users allow the browser to write through the sandbox to various parts of the actual profile on the hard drive, else new bookmarks, NoScri...

Re: NoScriptSTS.db-xxxx.tmp

Just caught this from the changelog : v 2.6.5.9rc2 Removed STS support for Gecko >= 4, which provides built-in HSTS ... Updating resulted in a NoScriptSTS.db file of zero bytes, and no db.tmp file at all. I would guess that the STS.db file might be removed from Gecko >=4 eventually, as being no long...

Re: Not autoreloading / closing menu if clicked from toolbar

(Assuming that the about:config settings described solved the autoreload issue, and addressing only the message bar.) With your Appearance settings, I can reproduce the lack of the message bar using the browser back and forward arrows as well as Alt+left or right arrow. However, if I then change a p...

I did not ask you to run in safe mode or disable all add-ons. I asked you to please create a clean profile and install a fresh ...

Re: XSS issues

Also, it would still be helpful to us if we could see this happening ourselves. As requested, please provide an exact set of steps to make the XSS message appear. Navigate to what site? Click what link(s)? Fill in what blanks with what? Et cetera -- until the XSS message shows. Then we can do exactl...

Re: NoScriptSTS.db-xxxx.tmp

I find only a single instance of a file, NoScriptSTS.db.tmp , without any xxxx (alphanumerics) added, created each time I start the browser. However, this is not a representative case, because I run the browser sandboxed, and the sandbox dumps *everything* each time the browser is closed. Does it st...

Re: XSS issues

Please provide exact steps to reproduce an XSS error. (II couldn't.) Then open Firefox Error Console (Ctrl+Shift+J), click the blue "Messages" icon, and copy/paste here any messages relating to NoScript. Especially those that start with [XSS]. (Note: If the spam filter trips, try enclosing...

Re: Suggestion: Global whitelist

It would be helpful if there was a global whitelist. Currently you can whitelist indidividual sites. But it would be more helpful if you can all a script for all sites. Are you referring to " Allow Scripts Globally (dangerous )"? This can be enabled via NoScript Options > Appearance , but...

Re: Bank Of America Wants To Force JavaScript

I'm assuming that you trust BA, or you wouldn't bank there, at least not online, so what is the objection to allowing JS from them? (not from third parties, of course)
Most financial sites that I use require that their own scripting be permitted.

Re: Revoke Temporary Permissions On Tab Close

Revoke temporary permissions for SiteX.com does revoke it for all tabs of SiteX.com, regardless of whether you close the tabs. If you are asking for NoScript to automatically revoke the permissions when you close the tab, or the last open tab of SiteX, which if I understand correctly is your request...

Re: ABE rule help needed

Maybe it's better to keep them split, as Giorgio (and I) suggested: Put the specific site first, and note that Giorgio's examples do *not* end in a global deny. The default SYSTEM rule follows, with the usual global deny. In plain English: Site LOCAL Accept from 192.168.1.36:52199 # Prevent Internet...

Re: ABE rule help needed

@Guardian: Won't that cause all other local traffic to be blocked? ABE FAQ has a number of examples in which Giorgio specifies putting the specific rule *above* the general, especially FAQ 8.3 - 8.9. They tend to use 127.0.0.1, but I'd think ABE would recognize 192.168.x.x (router or LAN) as a LOCA...
