NoScript and Firefox 61.01 - Javascript problem

Post by jeffshelby1 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 9:03 pm

Hi - Javascript isn't working for me in Firefox 61.01 (Windows). The about:config file says javascript is enabled, but when I go to sites that require javascript, like facebook.com, it says javascript is not enabled. I asked Firefox support, and they advised me to disable NoScript. I did so, and now Javascript is working fine.

Is there a way that I can re-enable NoScript without losing javascript?

Thanks
Jeff

NoScript disables JavaScript by default (DEFAULT preset, which applies to all the "unknown" websites).
Then you can click on NoScript's toolbar icon and enabling it by setting the page you're in, and possibly the 3rd party scripts it loads, to TRUSTED.
You've got also many other options (such as allowing JavaScript in the the DEFAULT preset, or CUSTOMize some sites).
All that while keeping javascript.enabled in about:config.

If this is a serious question, I would guess the OP either A) used NoScript Classic in Allow Scripts Globally mode for its "extra" protections and didn't set up NoScript 10 the same way, or B) isn't able to allow Javascript by setting sites to (Temp.) TRUSTED.

@jeffshelby1 So which is it? Please let us know so we can help you better. Thanks.

also barbaz, OP did not mention what version of Noscript OP was using.
OP should add facebook.com and facebook.net onto the "whitelist" (aka trusted) in Noscript
