Below log is from https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotels-g186234-Cornwall_England-Hotels.html (originally posted in another thread), XSS enabled and that Kaspersky exception in my ABE config. Still waay too slow. Strangely The Guardian seems absolutely fine for me.

I have Self-Destructing Cookies installed but I disabled it for this test load of that link. Is this any help?

OK so tripadvisor seems to be hit by the XSS performance issues, not the facebook part. I'm happy to try the next dev release to see if this fixes it. Thanks team!

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to affect the hang on tripadvisor.

The tripadvisor link is MUCH better, thanks!


I'm still seeing a slight hang. But this one is not a NoScript bug. These steps clear it up -

1) NoScript Options > Advanced > ABE > USER, add
Code: Select all
Site .bluekai.com tpc.googlesyndication.com
Deny


2) NoScript Options > Advanced > XSS, add these exceptions
Code: Select all

No, because I thought NoScript will work like in former times - without any manipulations in the options.

But with the options above, it's still the same :-(

I installed 5.0.6 last week and added the ABE rules and XSS exceptions suggested by barbaz several posts back. I also reverted from FF52 to FF51 for an unrelated reason. Overall, behavior has improved, but I'm now getting obtrusive warnings on eBay and several other sites. Here's a screenshot (typical): http://optimalbuilding.com/files/noscript_filter_screenshot.jpg.

Admittedly I don't understand the intent of creating identical ABE rules and XSS exceptions, but I'd rather not have to put up with these warnings in order to avoid browser lockups. Perhaps if I understood what these changes are intended to do?

The XSS filter exception tells NoScript not to do in-depth analysis and filtering of traffic to those sites - thus avoiding the freeze.

The ABE rule tells NoScript to simply block that traffic.

Ok, just so I understand... doesn't NS block scripts from domains that I forbid?
