acessing internal sites and local files

Post by jmac » Thu Jun 14, 2018 1:52 pm

Hey all,
I'm having trouble with the latest version of FF (60.0.2) and NoScript (10.1.8.2). In previous versions I was able to whitelist internal sites and any local file access (file:///, jira:8008/, etc) just like any other site but now when I try to whitelist, the URL that is listed is blank, I can still allow or temp allow but there's nothing there so nothing happens. If I allow scripts globally, the pages work, turn it off and I'm back to blocked pages.

I tried digging around search and couldn't find anything on this, I could be just using the wrong keywords though.

Thanks
jmac

WebExtensions cannot block scripts on file: URLs, so file:// should be "whitelisted" already.

Regarding jira:8008, it's a bug - https://forums.informaction.com/viewtop ... =7&t=24627
As a workaround, try whitelisting the full address manually in NoScript Options
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Ah that did it, I explained the file:// poorly, my issue was related to localhost/local resources the same way for both and that workaround solved it for both my issues.

Thanks for pointing me in the right place.
