Distrust Option Disabled

Post by PrivacyAdvocate » Wed Jun 03, 2020 3:40 pm

I have been using no script for quite sometime and recently updated the recommend update, however I DO NOT like the changes.

For example, prior to the update when visiting a website, I would click on the no script icon and choose to "Distrust" individual sites that are on the visiting website. Unfortunately this option has been disabled which means snooping websites that are on the current page visited can snoop and track you which is not good and defeats the purpose of having no script.

Please look into this and reinstated the option to Distrust individual sites using scripts that have landed on the paged visited.


Thank you.

NoScript is a security tool, not a privacy tool. Setting a site to Untrusted in NoScript doesn't stop it from tracking you.

As for the Untrusted option being disabled, is this same issue as viewtopic.php?f=7&t=25983 ?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
