[Unrelated] NoScript and mobile.twitter.com

Post by asensio » Tue Jan 30, 2018 3:14 am

Hi everyone,

I've been trying NoScript and there's a thing that I can't seem to get right. I've "TRUSTED" twitter.com and twimg.com when accessing Twiiter so I won't be redirected to mobile.twitter.com. But, as I'm using "Twitter as a Sidebar" Firefox add-on, I need NoScript to allow access to the new Twitter Lite/Mobile layout, not the scriptless one (also, NoScript seems to brake the add-on as every time I click "Home", "Mention", etc. it opens in a new tab and it shouldn't). Is there a way I could totally unblock the mobile version of Twitter?

Thanks in advance,
Cheers

Are you positive that this is Noscripts fault?

Because:
"last updated : 7 months ago (Jul 3, 2017)"

Works with Firefox for Android 54.0a1 and later, Firefox 54.0a1 and later

Is it possible that the addon just doesn't work with the new FF57+ version any more?
Dudes blogs Certificate is expired, can't find anything about the addon there either.

Have you tried sending HIM a support email asking him?

I assume we're talking about this addon - https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/twitter-as-a-sidebar/

I took a look at the addon. Offhand I see no reason why it wouldn't work in FF 57. It's a WebExtension, so it "shouldn't" break with new Firefox releases. And literally all it does is load this in a sidebar -

Code: Select all

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Twitter Lite Loading...</title>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=https://mobile.twitter.com/">
</head>
<body>
    <h1>Loading...</h1>
</body>
</html>
asensio, what happens if you try to open https://mobile.twitter.com/ directly?

Thanks for the replies,

Oh man! Yesterday I tried several things before posting this question: restarting Firefox, trying the add-on (yes, that's the one, barbaz) with and without NoScript, setting permissions... The only thing i didn't try was cleaning Firefox's cache [insert very ashamed face here], thing I did just now before checking for a reply. So now, after the cleaning, everything is working as it should.

It wasn't NoScript's or the add-on's fault... just me forgetting one of the most basic things.

Again, thank you for your replies,
Cheers
