Re: How is it possible for add-ons to be proprietary

Might be best for you to understand what you are talking about first. It is not the addon that is necessarily proprietary but rather parts of their codes, or libraries they rely on that might be and it is perfectly valid. The open source of the addon is the part that does the job, if it calls a piec...

Re: Need help writing WebExtensions

Just be careful, browser gets blamed for a lot that has nothing to do with anything. Technically any API limitation is a "browser bug", so it becomes a bit of an overreaching net and ultimately meaningless.

Re: Need help writing WebExtensions

Their API is not mature yet, they have A LOT of lacking API in the rush to get it out there, so it will be quite a while before they become reasonably usable for everything. This was the same issue Chrome faced in the early days and now they have it better covered and Mozilla decided, oh yeah we are...

Huge Number of Console Messages

Giorgio, I know you are busy with NoScript and have prioritized it, and that's understandable. However, FlashGot has been unattended for a while, there are request that I have made before which would be nice but cant wait, it still has not been WebExt ported yet which means 57+ will not be able to u...

Re: NoScript Sightings

From the conclusions: Right now, the most secure browsers are Chrome and Opera. Yes, but they used the whole length of the article hedging their bets and trying to offset their "conclusion" as basically translated to "DEPENDS". Otherwise, you BEGIN with saying, the most secure browser is THIS and H...

Re: Windows leaking IPv6 address

Yes, but you can easily plug it with a small amount of effort. Assuming your ISP is giving you an IPv4 address and not an IPv6 (in which case you are shit out of luck and need it) you can block all IPv6 traffic with several tweaks; each of which works on its own but you can bundle them all to make s...

Re: 0.0.0.0 being treated as LOCAL

This is one way to look at it: That link requires login and I don't have one. Can you please quote the relevant part? My sincerest apologies, I was working on a mock up with the Mozilla team, I put the link to that instead of the article, I have corrected it. Damn you copy paste and not looking at ...

Re: 0.0.0.0 being treated as LOCAL

In networking 0.0.0.0 is often treated as the ultimate path, meaning in practice it reflects your actual path to the internet, so it can often trigger any LOCAL designation, although I am not sure how specifically it triggers ABE's implementation but thought I share that. This is one way to look at ...

Re: NoScript Webext browser compatibility?

They are very irresponsibly pushing the release despite not being ready and many of the devs not being ready due to lack of proper API or finalized code, but that's Mozilla for you.

Re: NoScript Sightings

Despite their misleading title, they don't actually say what it is. They just dance around it by giving a summary of each browser and throwing in some scattered "data" to use the term loosely and stories about it and bullet points from their feature lists. Anyone reading this wouldn't know more abou...

Re: Allow JS from a certain host only on one domain

There you have it. :ugeek: Keep in mind that uMatrix is an extension of uBlock in the sense that it is more of a general blocker of resources than JUST scripts, much like how most of use have and used ReqeustPolicy in conjunction with NoScript to introduce a ACL or Firewall style rule to control dyn...

Re: Allow JS from a certain host only on one domain

Yeah, but the OP asked for a GUI - ABE can be accessed through the GUI and is there for exactly this kind of pick and choose customization. Many years ago, you can ask Thrawn, we worked on a GUI driven ABE decisions but quickly became obvious that one size wizarding doesn't fit all and it is best t...

Should some website also check whether the miner actually works and otherwise intentionally break some functionality to force you enabling it, we could devise some Surrogate Script as a work-around.
