Gmail and NoScript version no. 10.6.1

Post by binarydruid » Sat Apr 13, 2019 9:39 pm

Greetings everyone,

Has any one experienced the following with NoScript version no. 10.6.1 ?

It seems like is blocking some functionality within Gmail. Namely the icons at the top and any drop down menu (e.g. when wishing to switch between work and personal accounts)

If I allow the Gstatic.com domain (which from my understanding tracks users) the functionality is restored. This seems like a recent development as 3-6 months i didn't have this issue.

Is this my only recourse if I'm trying to minimize my online activity footprint ?


Cheers,

yes. And gstatic is just Google's CDN, it doesn't track you any more than Google/Gmail would anyway.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
