How do I now delete an entry completely from the whitelist, so the url is not visible at all?

Set it to Default, it will be gone when you reload the NoScript Options page.

Sorry, I'm noticing this right now.
Thank you very much to the OP and all the other contributors!
I'm going to add it to the external resources links on AMO and noscript.net, hoping to turning this into an "official" guide ASAP.
Thanks again!

Hello.

Thank you for your great work.

I please would know the difference between trusting "https://duckduckgo.com" and "... duckduckgo.com" for example.

Can someone explain?

Thx

Trusting "https://duckduckgo.com" means you are literally trusting just "https://duckduckgo.com".
Trusting "...duckduckgo.com" means you are trusting duckduckgo.com and all its subdomains.

Globally allowing scripts seems to just turn NoScript off completely, unlike previous versions where globally allowing scripts would allow all scripts except for those on your blocklist. Is this a general problem with NoScript 10 or am I doing something wrong?

It is by design.
Now that you can customize the DEFAULT preset to be as permissive as you want, you can obtain the "old" behavior by just enabling all its capabilities.
On the other hand, "Allow Script Globally" now it's more literal, disabling content blocking outright, mostly for debugging purpose when everything else fails to make a site work

hey, any advice how to allow whole subnets (as the old client was able to by adding 10.50.0 for example)? i tried, but it seems the setting does not get used. i always have to trust single hosts in the subnet...

I must say this new version seems a lot more complicated to use, the old version was much easier to operate and manage, but sadly the old one does not work with Firefox Quantum. I used NoScript for years, but dont think I will install this new version. Thx for the guide though :)

Thanks. It's a good guide. I would like to know more about when and why to allow/disallow script, object, media, frame, font, webgl, fetch and other. If it has already explained, a link would be great. Thanks...

Well, first you need to know what those things are - https://forums.informaction.com/viewtop ... 552#p93552

Then the "when and why" is:
A) Do you trust the site enough to allow this?
B) Do you need to allow this to enable the site functionality you need? (it can take some trial-and-error to answer this one)

Is there also a feature (available or planned, if technically possible at all) to (dis-) allow specific JS functions?

Imagine there are several JS functions for a site, maybe in one separate source file, maybe inline. Some are useful to have the site presented nicely and allow correct navigation. Others are unwanted, e.g. catch right-clicks (okay, that can be avoided with about:config) or the selection of form fields and occasionally load advertizing popups.

P.S.: Can't be avoided reliably with context menu option if first all kinds of clicks are (randomly and rarely) captured and then filtered...

I'm on a site right now where noscript it blocking 49 scripts; and one of them is blocking content that I need to view.
I can only view 13 of the 49 scripts blocked; one of them is the site it-self and the other 12 are tracking sites. Is there a way for me to view the other 36 scripts so I can test which one of them I need to give permissions to?

Thank you very much for this guide. Is there a way to make *.example.com trusted temporarily by default? This used to be a feature in the legacy/classic version but can't seem to find a way to do it in the new WebExtensions version.
