[RESOLVED] Manually Backup NoScript Configuration

Post by miracle » Fri May 11, 2018 12:52 pm

Hello,

My Firefox crashed a few days ago. It can no longer start as usual so I prepare to reinstall it. I would like to preserve all NoScript configurations. The description on https://noscript.net/faq#qa2_4 suggests using the "Export/Import" function. However I am unable to do so since I cannot start my Firefox. How can I preserve the NoScript configurations manually and apply it after my Firefox is reinstalled?

Don't hold me to it, but I'm thinking if you just copy, storage-sync.sqlite, you should be OK.

In any case, so long as you have a copy of your old Profile, you can always refer back to it for any need.


OOOPS.

You're on FF 52.
In that case, NoScript settings are in prefs.js.
And... and that might be it?
(Longer times past, there used to be a separate directory/file for ABE related settings, but I don't think that is the case in NoScript 5.x.)

I was on a recent version of Firefox, sth. like FF 58 or 59. I checked the prefs.js file and it does not contain the blacklist/whitelist information.

I had a look at the storage-sync.sqlite file and it does contain the information of trusted/untrusted websites. I've reinstalled Firefox (FF 60.0) and replaced prefs.js and storage-sync.sqlite in the profile folder and it works nicely. Thanks !
