Noscript Breaks Disqus - again

Post by TalonKarrde » Sun Dec 10, 2017 10:03 pm

Symptom: large disqus threads don't load. (small ones, do, occasionally)
I'm logged in as disqus user

Allow all scripts does NOT fix the issue.
Disabling NoScript does fix the issue.

Noscript Version is 5.1.8.2 on Firefox ESR 52.5.2 (32bit)
No other adblock or content control extensions are present.

I already tried adding .disqus.com to both noscript.clearClick.exceptions and noscript.clearClick.subexceptions (as advised in earlier threads in this forum) , but that doesnt help.

console output for that page (yeah, its Breitbart) (with allow all scripts)

Code: Select all

Doesn't work for me at the link in your post. Disqus works fine for me at Instapundit but not at pjmedia posts outside of Instapundit. Disqus also works when I went to https://blog.disqus.com/disqus-and-zeta

I found the problem. I was getting XSS warning popups on another screen. I cleared those and tried a post at pjmedia and got another XSS warning. I allowed the XSS and Disqus loaded without any further problem.

Same problem.

I get no warnings but found it's OK if I turn off XSS sanitisation.

This is v 5.1.8.3 on waterfox 55.2.2

I'm using TOR which has NoScript built in. Default configuration for everything. I also see Disqus threads hanging when the browser attempts to load them.

Doesn't seem right I should have to disable XSS protection to get it loading. What changed? I noticed that some disqus sites load, but not others. Has there been some political targeting?

I'm not able to post the console log because the "anti-spam filter" blocks my post. I tried several times.

Hi,

as this issue seems to persist:

has this problem been recognized as a bug by those in charge of fixing things?
is there an ETA for a fix?

I have no idea what you are talking about. What is "another screen", what are "xss popups" and how do you "clear them" ?

I, for one, can't stand Disqus. I think it's more on there end that the way they do things basically requires you to revert every protection you have in place. If I mess with referer control it breaks logins, first party isolation breaks logins, blocking 3rd party cookies breaks logins.. .I've never been able to consistently log into a site using Disqus because once I do, I probably cleaned my cookies or toggled a preference back to something else and suddenly I'm back to a broken Disqus login.

That is not the point. NoScript has a problem here, evidenced by the fact that deactivating noscript is the only thing that remedies the problem

Whoever is in charge here - please fix that Disqus issue! Disqus is the comments engine behind hundred of large and small web sites.

Right now, noscript users are prevented from participating in internet debates all over the place!
Please fix that!!!

Some are, some are not.
Loading comment chains works fine here (although not in the build you mention, I don't run that).
After allowing both …disqus.com and …disquscdn.com

It shows comments just fine (I guess the 8000+ on that breitbart drat count as "large"?)
The thing with noscript in general is, there is a lot of "user error" that can be experienced, and in those cases, without actually knowing the specific settings of a user, it can't necessarily be established whether there actually IS a bug.
If reproducing behaviour fails, chances are it's the user settings and not the addons fault.

Someone above pointed out that lack of 3rd party cookies interferes (which makes sense because discuss is technically a third party on any given page that embeds it)

The basic problem is, Noscript allows you to mess with webpages. Depending on what you decide more or less. If you decide in a way that conflicts with the websites intend, it will probably not show it in an expected way.
What is "another screen", what are "xss popups" and how do you "clear them" ?
another screen : The other monitor/display device in a dual/multi display setup.

xss popup : a seperate window being created warning you of a cross site scripting call, requiring user input about how to proceed (allow/block once/always)

cross site scripting : a page calling another pages scripts, but not in the regular way properly announcing it, but acting like it is their own script.

clearing them : Making a choice, therefore stopping the pause of loading that script until you allow it (or not).

Which brings us back to settings: If you for instance generally block Xss calls, and don't have them set to "ask me", it won't ask, and thus not create a popup, thus just block the call, which might break something you want to work.

Tldr:
The chance is that it isn't Noscripts fault, but some setting or another that you don't know that you deny something that you want allowed.
Hard to troubleshoot without proper information, and even harder to actually establish as "bug".

the solution is very simple:

Open NoScript options and set the XXS pannel adding ^https://disqus.com inside it as in the bottom image:

@NRG While that could be a good solution, please note that it allows every site to XSS disqus.com. Some more info is needed to get a sense of how safe that is.

Could you please open Browser Console (Cmd-Shift-J) and post the NoScript InjectionChecker and NoScript XSS messages associated with breaking Disqus?
(temporarily remove the exception for this)
