Disable restrictions "for this tab" and "globally" work differently on "this tab"

Post by racoon » Fri May 10, 2019 3:46 pm

Disable restrictions "for this tab" and "globally" seem not to have the same effect on the currently opened tab.

For example, go to https://watch.nba.com/game/20190509/TORPHI. When all scripts are blocked the "Game Recap" video does not play. If I click "Disable restrictions for this tab" it still does not play. However, if I click on "Disable restrictions globally" it does play.

I think there should be no difference in functionality for the current tab.

You think correctly.

What version of NoScript are you using?

Sorry for the slow reply. I am using version 10.6.1. It has been like that for a long time and affects several other pages as well.

It might be that "Disable restrictions for this tab" does not deal properly with script that are later loaded on the tab. Here is another example:

https://www.tagesschau.de/europawahl/eu ... v-101.html

When the page is set to "Disable restrictions for this tab" it will reload and show that all restrictions are disabled. However, once I scroll down further scripts are loaded. These scripts are still restricted and a number for the restricted scripts appears in the NoScript symbol. But this seems to be inconsistent with the "Disable restrictions for this tab" choice.
