access denied after firefox update

Post by wkstone » Sat Jan 11, 2020 6:02 am

updated firefox to 72.0.1

NoScripts 11.0.11

now get access errors:

Access Denied
You don't have permission to access "http://www.costco.com/laptops.html" on this server.

Reference #18.b36b9d0.1578721360.c8246cc2

address bar clearly shows

https://www.costco.com/laptops.html

can only get to site if I disable noscripts.
This has happened in the past and seemed corrected, WTF

Confirmed.

But it must be a general website issue with Costco itself.
Oh, I'm definitely wrong on that, aren't I!


Now, I've got to remember just where I saw that me that message & what the cause was?

Ah, what was it?
Useragents? Cookies?

Are you using Private Browsing (which changes your UA)?


(These days, Mozilla does so much crap - on its own, like changing your UA if you use Private Browsing, or its' "tracking protection" - with no clear, easy way to disable, bypass, override, it makes using the web far more difficult - when then web doesn't coincide with the masters rules.)

I can access that site fine with NoScript 11.0.12rc2.

Does it work for you with NoScript 11.0.12rc2?
Does it work for you with NoScript 11.0.12rc2 on Firefox 68 ESR?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

No, there is an issue.

Whether NoScript is exacerbating the issue or not, not sure?

It might just be a (general browser) settings (cookie, UA, "privacy" setting) issue?

I actually saw it in multiple browsers (FF & SeaMonkey) - all of which are running NoScript, perhaps in Private Browsing (or not), & that is why I initially (incorrectly) thought it was a site issue.

Something along these lines, https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.ph ... 18#p146118.


And now, in FF, with NoScript, in regular, in Private Browsing, I've had instances where the site loads, & instances where the site fails (with the above message).


(PS: In FF Nightly, when you want to change the UA - you now need an extension. [Wonderful.])

Not a NoScript issue.
Not an "after FF update" issue.

Duplicated in a (mostly ;-)) new SeaMonkey Profile - that never had NoScript installed (yes, I know, heresy).
(I have been jumping between SeaMonkey 2.49 & 2.53 - with that same Profile, if that matters, with two differing UA, if that matters:
