Safe to reset about:config NoScript preferences?

Post by Tree » Wed May 01, 2019 10:07 pm

Those are no longer needed correct? Is it okay to reset them all, I have about 30 in mine, or are some still used like the 2 capability.policy.maonoscript ones and maybe the noscript.untrusted one?

capability.policy.maonoscript.javascript.enabled
capability.policy.maonoscript.sites
noscript.ABE.cspHeaderDelim
noscript.ABE.migration
noscript.contentBlocker
noscript.exportDir
noscript.firstRunRedirection
noscript.firstRunRedirection.pending
noscript.forbidFrames
noscript.forbidIFrames
noscript.forbidWebGL
noscript.gtemp
noscript.notify
noscript.options.tabSelectedIndexes
noscript.policynames
noscript.showAddress
noscript.showAllowPage
noscript.showBaseDomain
noscript.showBlockedObjects
noscript.showDistrust
noscript.showGlobal
noscript.showPermanent
noscript.showRecentlyBlocked
noscript.showTempAllowPage
noscript.showTempToPerm
noscript.showVolatilePrivatePermissionsToggle
noscript.subscription.lastCheck
noscript.temp
noscript.untrusted
noscript.version
noscript.visibleUIChecked

No extensions use prefs.js any longer, so "legacy" extension prefs in prefs.js are immaterial (except, & not even sure, but perhaps for a one time import, but probably not even that), so resetting them should not matter.

(Can't hurt to save a backed up copy of prefs.js.)

None of those are used by NoScript 10 and it's not technically possible for NoScript 10 to use them anyway. If you no longer use NoScript Classic, it's safe to reset them all.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
