Noscript freezes Firefox

Post by Reindeer » Fri Jul 07, 2017 3:26 pm

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open fresh Firefox profile
2. Install NoScript and restart Firefox
3. Go to

Firefox will freeze completely within a few seconds. Sometimes Firefox is able to recover after around one minute. Doesn't occur when NoScript isn't installed or is completely disabled.
Tested on Firefox 54.0.1 64 bit running on ArchLinux. NoScript version 5.0.6 and 5.0.6rc6
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
