[Resolved] No updates for Linux stuck with NoScript 10.1.5.6

Post by Wfoxie » Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:44 pm

This was previously reported in my post-https://forums.informaction.com/viewtop ... =8&t=24223 by 'hailstorm' on the 17th December. I confirmed the problem as well. As there was no response and I keep experiencing the issue, I am making a new post for this.

Linux Mint system does not receive updates to NoScript since 10.1.5.6 anymore.

I did manual install from the link https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/noscript/ or https://noscript.net/getit. That didn’t work; so I deleted NoScript from my Firefox 57, restarted my PC and installed NoScript 10.x again to have 10.1.5.6 again. My updates are set to auto, it simply does not update and does not install the latest version.

Another problem: when I tried to export, NoScript 10.1.6 didn't do anything, I left it on for more than 10 minutes.

Please fix the probem. Thank you in advance and thank you for all your hard work.

Do not start duplicate threads. Doing so is violation of Forum Rules (note #8).

Locking.

If you don't get a response, feel free to bump your existing post. I would say bumping about once a week is acceptable given the current rate of new posts.

Moderation
Unlocked and resolving the duplication by removing the original off-topic post, per poster's side-channel request

Anwers
  1. Please try uninstalling completely and installing 10.1.6.1 from https://noscript.net/getit
  2. 10.1.6.1 contains a work-around for a Firefox bug preventing the Export button from working on Linux and Mac

Giorgio, Thank you so much for your response.

I am not sure how to completely uninstall NoScript as a Add-On from Firefox in Linux Mint. I am only familiar with Windows.
Could someone, please help me?

I don't want to 'Refresh' the Firefox as this will wipe out all my settings.
Restarting Firefox in Safe Mode and uninstalling the Add-On, than restarting PC didn't do the trick.
I can't find detailed reliable steps on the Internet. Entering wrong info in Terminal will result in many problems, I was there before.

weisse and Wfoxie are the same user?

It's the same in all OS: Tools > Add-ons Manager > NoScript > Remove, then restart Firefox for good measure.

Remove does not help, I'm still having problems not being able to export. Isn't something in the about:config that I could change? My Whitelist is still recognized, which means not everything was removed.
Thank you all and have a Merry X-mas

Apparently yes per PM from Wfoxie. So the posts are now under Wfoxie's account.
