problems with file:/// address redirect and display

Post by Guest » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:41 am

I work with LibreOffice and have installed LibreOffice Offline Help Pack.
Clicking on Help within LibreOffice in this configuration opens browser with an address like:
1.) file:///C:/Users/XXXXX/AppData/Local/Temp/lu141924fy1h0.tmp/NewHelp4.html
(with XXXXX as username and changing .tmp names)
This address redirects to an address like this:
2.) file:///C:/Program%20Files/LibreOffice/help/de/text/shared/main0108.html?System=WIN&DbPAR=WRITER#bm_id3149178

Having activated NoScript ( the first address can not redirect and is locked in an endless reloading cycle.
Deactivating XSS option makes no difference.

I have manually added file:///C:/Users/XXXXX/AppData/Local/Temp/ to the sitelist as "Trusted" and get the redirection working.
But the second (target) address shows an empty page.
If set this second address - using NoScript Icon - to "Trusted", it works now. But with the effect that "file:" is added to the sitelist as "Trusted"

Same result if redo from start ("file:" set manually to "Default") and set first (cycling) address - using NoScript Icon - to "Trusted" => "file:" is trusted

Is this result ("file:" in general as trusted) intended?
And is there a better solution for such cases like LibreOffice Offlinehelp?
