cannot highlight a text and right click on it when using NS

Post by alsami » Sat Dec 15, 2018 5:04 pm

hello there,
It is very handy for me to highlight a text then right click on it to get a menu so I can google the text for example, However, since I installed NS this feature has been disabled and when I highlight a text then right click on it the highlight is removed and I only get the normal right click menu. this issue happens even on trusted sites and I couldn't find any option in settings to fix this issue.

I'm using Firefox Quantum 64.0 and NS 10.2.0

Working on my end as expected.

Disable all other extensions & test.

Test in a new, clean Profile with only NoScript installed.

thanks man, it actually worked. It turned out that a TTS addon was the problem, I don't why when I disable NS the right click on highlighted text works though.

For reference for other readers, what TTS addon specifically?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
