[Fixed] Problems replying on this forum

Post by barbaz » Wed Jul 29, 2020 7:07 pm

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 79 NoScript 11.0.35rc2, I've noticed that the buttons above the reply box in this forum sometimes don't work, e.g. the </> button for code tags. It seems random when it does or doesn't occur. But I could reproduce it repeatedly when trying to add code tags to viewtopic.php?p=102567#p102567 . I ended up having to do that one manually.

Possibly related Web Console messages -

Board issue or something on my end?

Actually, maybe this is NoScript related? I tried downgrading to 11.0.34 and did not reproduce the problem editing that post. But I can reproduce it consistently with 11.0.35rc2.

Moving to NoScript Support based on this finding.

Try editing your post, selecting some text in the post, and using one of the buttons to apply a BBcode to it? Looks like this happens editing *any* post on this forum, not just the one I linked in OP.

Sorry, not seeing anything.
1 time, but I might have mis-clicked (I guess I should say, I gender-neutral-clicked).
Otherwise, all edits & whatnot have been fine.
ignore that strike, it was just a test - successful.

Not seeing anything in Console.

NoScript & uBlock Origin & (not sure if Mozilla threw anything in on me or not?)
Screenshot, whatever that is.
I never put it there.

For some reason I wonder if viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26048 might be a related to this issue? Image

I'd like to test whether my issue might be a conflict between NoScript 11.0.35rc2 and Form History Control, but I no longer have a consistent way to reproduce the problem? Image

I would suspect that when it doesn't work, this inline script is being either blocked or somehow hosed -

Code: Select all

<script>
	var form_name = 'postform';
	var text_name = 'message';
	var load_draft = false;
	var upload = false;

	// Define the bbCode tags
	var bbcode = new Array();
	var bbtags = new Array(/* Snipped - filter won't let me post this */);
	var imageTag = false;

	// Helpline messages
	var help_line = {
		b: 'Bold\u0020text\u003A\u0020\u005Bb\u005Dtext\u005B\/b\u005D',
		i: 'Italic\u0020text\u003A\u0020\u005Bi\u005Dtext\u005B\/i\u005D',
		u: 'Underline\u0020text\u003A\u0020\u005Bu\u005Dtext\u005B\/u\u005D',
		q: 'Quote\u0020text\u003A\u0020\u005Bquote\u005Dtext\u005B\/quote\u005D',
		c: 'Code\u0020display\u003A\u0020\u005Bcode\u005Dcode\u005B\/code\u005D',
		l: 'List\u003A\u0020\u005Blist\u005D\u005B\u002A\u005Dtext\u005B\/list\u005D',

		s: 'Font\u0020colour\u003A\u0020\u005Bcolor\u003Dred\u005Dtext\u005B\/color\u005D\u0020or\u0020\u005Bcolor\u003D\u0023FF0000\u005Dtext\u005B\/color\u005D',

					,cb_22: '[faq=flashgot|noscript]x.y[/faq]'
					,cb_24: 'Strike through'
			}

	function change_palette()
	{
		phpbb.toggleDisplay('colour_palette');
		e = document.getElementById('colour_palette');

		if (e.style.display == 'block')
		{
			document.getElementById('bbpalette').value = 'Hide\u0020font\u0020colour';
		}
		else
		{
			document.getElementById('bbpalette').value = 'Font\u0020colour';
		}
	}
</script>
Is it significant that it's an inline script being affected?

Ah, so maybe this was a conflict with Stylus? Updated to 11.0.35rc3 and so far so good.

EDIT Scratch that last part. With 11.0.35rc3 I'm getting 'A script in the extension "NoScript" is causing Nightly to slow down.' Clicking "Stop it" produces this problem again.

I started getting the same slow down message with Firefox 79.0 after installing 11.0.35rc3. It made Firefox unusable.

The message stopped when I reverted to 11.0.34 and returned when I reloaded 11.0.35rc3, so I've gone back to 11.0.34.

So far seems fixed in 11.0.35rc4. @Toonser fixed for you too?

Just confirming that was me replying. Hadn't spotted I'd been logged out.
