"Disable Restriction For This Tab" Not Working

Post by funthen » Wed Dec 26, 2018 2:21 pm

Hi

I had realized, for the past few versions of NS, that the "Disable Restriction For This Tab" feature is not working perfectly. For example, with NS enabled and I go to this site. I am unable to see the image, as expected. But when I use "Disable Restriction For This Tab", I am still unable to see the image. Only when I use "Disable Restriction Globally" do I see the image. Thus, is NS working as intended?

Confirmed.

Not sure why offhand?

You can only allow imgur.com & that also gets it working.
(Might need more for certain actions?)

I have described what I know about the bug here: https://github.com/hackademix/noscript/issues/48

As written in issue 48, I have tested older releases to see when the bug was introduced. The last release where "Disable restrictions for this tab" worked as expected was NoScript 10.1.9.8 (Oct 6, 2018) and the first one with the bug was NoScript 10.1.9.9rc1 (Oct 13, 2018). I think this should help you find the bug.

I have further written about the bug in this thread, but since I needed some investigation until I could describe the bug as clearly as in issue 48, my comments may partly be too confusing, which let me create issue 48.

The bug was reported quite soon after the first version with the bug came out here, but apparently nobody being involved found how to reproduce the bug.

The current release candidate 10.2.2rc1 fixes the problem! Again, thanks for the fix!
