New Noscript Default Options

Post by GeorgeV » Wed Nov 22, 2017 3:25 pm

When noscript updated to its quantum version, the default option was set up, for some reason, to allow all scripts etc running, instead of blocking them. When I expanded the default button options all the allow options were ticked, i.e. the default and trusted buttons had the same configuration! Now, I realize I can untick the boxes manually, but what is the "default" default configuration? Which things are supposed to be blocked (i.e. un-ticked) and which should be allowed (i.e. ticked) in the default option/button?

in the least, you'd want scripts to be unticked on the Default setting for NoScript to be called NoScript.

@GeorgeV - this is what @Barbaz wrote as I had asked the same:

DEFAULT: only "frame", "fetch", "other" checked

TRUSTED: all checked

UNTRUSTED: nothing checked

CUSTOM: I don't think it has a set default. Seems to pick up whatever you last clicked.
Unfortunately, these DEFAULT settings do not stick at all after several restarts of the browser. Mine were all checked in DEFAULT. If you change anything in CUSTOM, it will change those DEFAULT settings again and you're brought back into a vicious cycle of repeating those setting changes.
