unable to import settings on Firefox for Android

Post by jawz101 » Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:02 am

The button to import saved settings does not do anything. You can export but not import.

For what it's worth, uBlock and Privacy Badger may have examples to get it to work.

Any input on this issue?

Install Firefox for Android

Install noscript

Export settings... Saves your settings to your downloads folder

Import settings... Button doesn't do anything

Is NoScript ever going to support importing preferences on Android?

I can't sensibly use NoScript until this is possible (it would be too fiddly to duplicate all the exceptions needed for most websites to work, especially when using a limited mobile interface).

Many thanks, I'm finally able to import (and so use NoScript) :)
