Linux, Firefox, noscript, Google, Paypal and others

Post by Hermit » Sat Aug 01, 2020 5:23 am

Since the most recent update, noscript has made Firefox (79.0) 64 bit Firefox for Ubuntu Canonical 1.0 unusable on my computer:
lsb_release -a
LSB Version: core-9.20170808ubuntu1-noarch:printing-9.20170808ubuntu1-noarch:security-9.20170808ubuntu1-noarch
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

Left, right, long, slow clicking on the Noscript Icon does nothing.

Clicking on google lookups takes me to a redirection URL which does nothing and goes nowhere.

Trying to go to PayPal Credit from Paypal results in a hang. Again, no amount of clicking does anything.

The same services on the same device on Chromium work perfectly.

I even attempted to reset my Noscript preferences thinking that maybe I had screwed something up.

Still no luck.

Finally disabled no script after 2 weeks fighting and everything is working perfectly.

Any suggestions?

This was I. The board told me that my name was a duplicate, so I deleted the name and retried and it decided to post it as guest.

What version of NoScript?

As a test, if you create a new Profile, install on NoScript, does NoScript work in that Profile as expected?

I am also having this problem where asana and some google docs refuse to load if I disable restrictions for a tab.

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.

Does it work if you completely disable NoScript, as the OP of this thread did? (Tools > Add-ons Manager > NoScript, click the toggle switch)

Yes. If I disable the NoScript extension entirely, then Asana loads correctly.

What about other extensions? Does the problem persist if you disable every extension except NoScript?

Yes. Indeed it does.

Here is an example of a query that fails.

"https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... GPf-1RjY-T"

I have both Google and TheNation flagged as "Trusted".

I did that and tested with "https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... GPf-1RjY-T"

That tab still hung.

Other windows opened from Google are slow, even when cross-site queries do not appear.

The same query dropped into Chromium opened instantly and other queries which were slow in Firefox with NoScript are much faster in Chromium.

With NoScript disabled, Firefox seems to be faster, but both are much quicker.
