Firefox deactivates NoScript...and calls it Legacy

Post by bo elam » Sat May 04, 2019 1:22 am

Hi, Firefox has deactivated NoScript and calls it a Legacy extension. Early this morning, all was well but now, a few minutes after I started the computer (W10) and opened Firefox, Firefox deactivates NoScript and calls it Legacy. I cant reinstall it either. I also tried testing with a new profile, and it doesn't install. Please, look at pictures. The only addons I use are NoScript and one Theme, both are being disabled by Firefox and called Legacy.

Something has to be wrong here. I was using Firefox 66.0.2, but updated it to 66.0.3, and still have the issue. I am using Firefox 32 bits in W10 64 bits.

So, right now I am naked, without NoScript.

Similar here, Win 10, and Firefox 66.0.3. Despite FF updating weeks ago, only disabled a few moments ago.

Thanks for the reply's, guys. Good to know, I am not alone. Likely this is a Firefox issue.

I even tried to install the latest version through a direct download and Firefox wouldn't let me, said it was corrupt.

While waiting for Mozilla to provide a fix, you could try temporarily switching to the unbranded Firefox build where you can disable addon signing enforcement (about:config > set xpinstall.signatures.required to false).
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

it's the apocalypse.
one short term solution would be to about:config in the url bar, and
enable.javascript = true
change to
enable.javascript=false
it will stop ALL scripts though.
oh well, at least with all JS allowed I didnt have to bother to temporarily allow for this site for the , captcha
thanks for the bugzilla link, they know about it.

Hallo,

spricht hier jemand deutsch???
Habe auch das Problem, und verstehe nicht viel englisch. Jedenfalls keine Facherklärungen, was eventuell aktiviert oder deaktiviert werden muss, um "no script" neu installieren zu können.

Schon mal danke ...

I found that it was disabled when I opened TOR. So I opened Firefox, and it was working with no issues. Then all of a sudden it became 'disabled' in Firefox. I find this very suspect. If anything it should have been disabled in Firefox first, and then 'later' disabled in TOR.

Hi,

I have the problem too since this morning, but not only NoScript.
3 (all) of my FF-AddOns are not verified and didn't work, so I think its a FF problem not a NoScript problem.

Also bis her habe ich noch keine Lösung endeckt, ich vermute aber das es eher ein FireFox Problem ist,
da es bei mir mit einem Schlag 3 (alle) meine(r) FF-AddOns deaktiviert hat.
