Will Websites read NoScript - Per-Site Permissions?

Post by landmove » Sat Nov 09, 2019 5:48 pm

NoScript keeps Per-Site Permissions including visited domains regardless of the Settings for these.
Are Websites, visited with the same Browser, able to read these domains, stored by NoScript?
If Yes:
- likely (> 50 %) or unlikely (< 50 %)?
- under which circumstances?

Checked NoScript-FAQ and forums.informaction.com concerning this quite extensive but did not find a hint.
If anybody is sure to have an answer be so nice as to send it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PS: to submit this, in Noscript I had to set ...google.com and ...gstatic.com to Temp./TRUSTED. Hereby I state, that I DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE this way;-)

Have a good time

Removed the email address. We don't give email support, but this being a public forum there are surely bad bots looking to harvest email addresses for spamming and other nefarious purposes.

No, a website cannot read your entire NoScript list. The most it can do is detect the permission state of a specific site. And even there, that doesn't say whether you have set as Default, Trusted, Untrusted, or Custom. And I think site can only tell that it was blocked, not specifically whether NoScript or some other blocker did the blocking.
