about:blank : Unable to run script because scripts are block

Post by SeanM » Fri Jan 09, 2015 5:25 pm

Following message received (more and more often):

Code: Select all

about:blank : Unable to run script because scripts are blocked internally


Environment:

Linux (openSUSE and Ubuntu)
Firefox 34.0.5
NoScript 2.6.9.10

The received message does not indicate what script is "unable to run", and why blocked. If I Allow Scripts Globally (or disable NoScript), message is not produced. The message in question has been occuring frequently in the error console, however the following site kicks out six (6) of the messages, and is repeatable:
[url]
http://kotaku.com/smash-bros-amiibo-tou ... Socialflow[/url]

This site is not important to me, but included as illustrative of the error and is repeatable.

Your link broke, this suffices, http://kotaku.com/tag/super-smash-bros-wii-u.

Pretty sure I've seen that too & had meant to ask about it.
I see it in my "regular" Profile, but not in two others & not sure why offhand?

The link you posted (that sufficed), does not produce the original "about:blank: message.

Let me try posting the failing link again:

This one continues to fail with the original "about:blank ....." messages.

What is script permission status of about:blank ?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

It did for me. Anyhow.

What is script permission status of about:blank ?

Shows in regular type, i.e. Allowed.

The about:blank Error Console message (or now lack thereof) may have been affected by a (NoScript) Reset?

Nope, just took a little clicking before it popped up again.
