Confirming what's installed?

Postby BillM2 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 4:25 am

Can we please get a single-point-of-access to identify what release of Firefox and NoScript are running on "my machine?" ;) Too many moving parts, right now; hard to tell when to ID and report Quantum (58.0.2) issues vs. NoScript 10.1.6.5 issues. A simple, unambiguous way to confirm current-running versions would help.

If you're using the latest Firefox version (i.e. 58.0.2) or anything equal or greater than 57, you're necessarily using a NoScript Quantum (10.x).
The exact version is displayed in its options page, on the top right, or as a tooltip just hovering the NoScript toolbar icon.

You may be confused by the "Classic" NoScript version (5.x), which is available only on browsers based on Gecko 56 or below.

Let me clarify: For diagnostic purposes, I want to, in ANY relatively-recent release, have a consistent method for Firefox to tell me what I've got: Firefox version, NoScript version, ultimately an enumeration of all loaded/active add-ons. (Recognizing this is likely a Firefox issue, not NoScript, but I'm not currently connected to the mozilla team)

Not a NoScript issue. Moving to Web Tech.
