FF 72 Shows Placemarkers on Yahoo in Private Window

Post by therube » Thu Nov 07, 2019 12:03 pm

FF 72 Nightly Shows Placemarkers on Yahoo in Private Window.

New behavior.


FF 72 Nightly, 20191106215426
Win7, NoScript 11.0.7rc1

URL: https://www.yahoo.com

Ensure that NoScript is enabled in Private Windows
Block yahoo.com (default is allowed)
Open yahoo in a normal window
Open yahoo in a private window


Left is normal window, right is private window.
In private, ALL the "articles" ALL the way down the page are enumerated as placemarkers.

As of 20191107215315 (actually the FF build prior), this is no longer an issue.


(Separately, I had the odd issue where NoScript was [totally] ineffectual.
Icon was there, no dropdown - at all, & no blocking.
Now I did cheat, but if you can't cheat, then it's not worth it.
Instead of "installing" NoScript [11.0.8rc1], I copied the .xpi into the /extensions/ directory, then renamed it to ...3232}, overwriting the existing, older NoScript .xpi.
[FF was closed, of course.]
Don't know if that contributed to the issue or what.
[That is not anything atypical for me - to "install" extension updates, that way.]

Another user with the same issue, Firefox 70.0/70.0.1 somenow breaks all addons.)

And it's back (the placemarkers, that is), 20191109093718.


Oh, & it is just not only in Private Windows where then happens, regular too.
(Pretty sure, initially, it only happened in Private Windows.)
