[Fixed] Hide the "Disable restrictions globally" button?

Post by Ian Perkins » Wed May 02, 2018 6:18 am

I really do not like this new "Disable restrictions globally (dangerous)" button in its current location. It's just too easy to hit by accident when you're meaning to hit something else, leaving you effectively without NoScript and maybe not knowing it. People do use computers when they're old, drunk, or tired!
Couldn't you
a) make it more inaccessible,
b) let us hide it, or
c) make a garish and scary "Are you sure you want to do this" box pop up when it's clicked?
Thanks for NoScript, and hoping not to see that button so easily in the next version!

[PS I haven't hit it by accident yet, but I'm almost sure I will.]

+1. If a confirmation dialog is added for this, it should be clear that the change persists across browser restarts.

I'm playing with making all the button strip configurable, possibly through DnD. Stay tuned.

Very nice!

And before anyone asks - you can initiate the editing with a drag and drop motion on the empty space, in case you manage to hide all your icons.

Tested in 10.1.8.2rc2 and it's awesome! Thank you Giorgio!

In 10.1.8.2rc2 I got it by just clicking or double-clicking the empty space. If you've hidden some icons, single-clicking the arrow or the empty space to its right will do.
