Controlling whitelist via user.js in 10.x

Post by zlatinb » Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:09 pm


I am developing a Firefox profile bundled with NoScript and I want to disable all scripts globally by default except for localhost. Is there a way to do that entirely through properties in user.js or is it necessary to bundle some kind of sqlite file?

Alternatively, can I prepare a whitelist manually, export it and then have NoScript automatically import it on startup?

Any other suggestions are welcome - my main goal is to have my users download the Firefox profile and not need to change any settings manually.

Can't be done through user.js. WebExtensions have no way to access the prefs services.

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
