For those interested....

Here is the only open topic on the subject (as all other topics have been shutdown on the forum): Want to talk about NoScript? Post here. -- it would appear that the Pale Moon staff disagree vehemently that there are not any issues with NS in regards to browser compatibility....

Here is the initial official Pale Moon announcement (prior to when the add-on was later added to the blacklist): Important: NoScript users and our support that was eventually locked due to expressed outrage by users....

Dated 2015: Why do some extensions not work in Pale Moon?
And that is all fine & dandy - as an overview.

Though in reality, regardless of whether an extension specifically targets PM (or any other browser), you never know what you're going to get, you never know whether there are incompatibilities, whether an extension will "cause stability or security problems".
The best you can do is to take what is there & hope that it works, correctly, or enough, for you.

Take FlashGot.
Works fine in SeaMonkey.
Works fine in FF (I believe).
Take & throw it into Waterfox & all works - except that the context-menu item, 'FlashGot Link' does not display - unless you disable multi-process in Waterfox.
All other context-menu items do display, all seems to work correctly. Even the shortcut key (Ctrl+F1) for 'FlashGot Link' works - but for whatever reason the actual menu item does not display.
Is FlashGot multi-process compatible? Not sure?
Is there a bug in FlashGot? In Waterfox? Don't know.
In any case, with Waterfox running in multi-process mode, FlashGot works - well enough.

^ Absolutely agree -- preaching to the choir from my perspective. :D

I earned myself what I consider was an unfounded warning from Pale Moon staff :? for this post on the only open Pale Moon forum topic on the subject where I in-part echoed precisely your sentiment: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.ph ... 40#p141110 after initially posting this previously: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.ph ... 20#p141037....

Seems some time back, PM said they cannot reasonably provide support with the browser any longer when you have NoScript installed ...NoScript. (And if I'm reading correctly) currently, they have added NoScript to their "blacklist" which then displays an Add-ons may be causing problems dialog (and Stability Issue w/ NoScript), prompting you to disable NoScript (with the default response being, Yes).

(And yes, you can respond "no" [not clear if that sticks or not?] &/or disable the blacklist.)
Yes it sticks -- I just did the following and have not had any more problems with Pale Moon blocking NS: Image

Have not had any issue running NoScript with Basilisk, and PM is easy to work-around as mentioned in above post. I am still hoping.. no... pleading, that NoScript will maintain a legacy version. uBlock-origin has also decided to maintain a legacy fork and it is working very well.

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
