can't find settings

Post by sau » Mon Feb 13, 2017 9:26 pm

Hi all!

Where can I find the settings page of Noscript Anywhere? I clearly remember of using it some weeks ago, now it's gone. Maybe I just forgot where it is, maybe an upgrade broke it?

What I've tried so far:
- looking everywhere in Firefox (especially in menu/tools/addons)
- searching the web and this forum for solutions
- reinstalling the Noscript addon

I'm using Noscript Anywhere 3.5a14 on Firefox 51.0.3 on Android 6.0.1 on Samsung SM-A510F.

I've just found out by accident that disabling and then re-enabling the addon lets me see the settings. Is this the intended behavior? What went wrong? I'm not even sure anymore that this is a Noscript probelm.

edit: After restarting Firefox, the settings disappear and the fix has to be applied again.

Could potentially be profile corruption of some kind.

Thanks for your suggestion. I've completely reinstalled Firefox, then installed Noscript. The problem is still there right after installation, and also comes back after every restart of Firefox. AFAICT no addons or settings were retained from the previous install. In my opinion this rules out profile corruption.

Same behavior here. V52.0b11 and v51.0.3 on Android 6.0.1. Setting will only show when toggling the addon on/off.

It's a known Firefox bug, hopefully fixed in Firefox 63 (current beta).
Please reopen if it doesn't work for you.
