[FIXED]NS10.1.7RC1-2:changing sites permission resets prefs

Post by pal1000 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:23 am

After updating to 10.1.7 RC1 some settings from Options page are reset to defaults if I trust a domain or full URL temporary or permanently, it doesn't seam to matter. I noticed this happens at least for these 2 settings:
- Advanced - Debug;
- Appearance - show NoScript contextual menu item.

After updating to 10.1.7 RC2 the brand-new "List full addresses in the permissions popup" is also affected.
Fortunately the known websites database is unaffected. Restarting Firefox brings everything back to normal until I mark something else trusted again.

What do you mean by "Firefox internal pages"?

Since updating to NS10.1.7RC1 and now on RC2 I experienced NoScript preferences reset after some time web browsing. Didn't figured out the trigger until now. I thought it may be Firefox internal pages (about: pages) but actually triggers when I do a temp trust. NS10.1.7RC2 made this bug far more obvious if "List full addresses in the permissions popup" is toggled. You'd immediately notice it changed back to default. And this issue happens in the background even if you never open NoScript Options page.

Updated the initial bug report, now that I found the real trigger. Took me long enough.
