Options-Dialog UI: support for easier editing of whitelists

Post by bgmnt » Fri Sep 01, 2017 7:23 pm

  • - double-click or F2 to edit entry (e.g. add https, change to full-address,domain,2nd-level)
  • - make more obvious that Ctrl+C does copy item (didn't know until this post)
  • - make dialog resizable (on linux it's sort-of hacky-resizable but only horizontally, but maybe not-intended side-effect
  • - white-list & space-separated lists: show count and/or some-info as feedback esp if debugging why it did/not work parsing?, else what to work-on? maybe test box (not just for ABE)
  • - sort by inode-index (order it was inputted), by protocol, domain
    • - color-code default rules?
    • - quick-filter rules to find entry?
    • - weakly-tint rules by favicon?
    other stuff
    • - semi-whitelist? not all the way allow's?
    • - option to block flagrant your-IP-address or GEO-coord's or much-info. stuff in http-URL's, cookies

These have been requested before, I don't have time to dig it all up.

Interesting idea, could be useful.

+1, this would be awesome!

Favicons change, whitelist rules may apply to a range of subdomains with different favicons. There's no meaningful way to do this and I don't see the point anyway.

Can you please be more specific what you have in mind here?

NoScript is a security tool, not a privacy tool. This stuff is outside the scope of NoScript.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
