[Fixed] Local file directory listing sometimes shown as garbage text

Post by barbaz » Mon Sep 07, 2020 2:27 pm

Firefox 81 Dev Edition
NoScript 11.0.42rc8

When viewing a directory by file: URL, it's supposed to list the directory contents. Sometimes I instead get just garbled, unusable text. When this issue occurs, no form of reloading helps the situation. Only disabling NoScript + reloading gets it back working. Re-enabling NoScript, the problem recurs immediately, without any manual reloading of the file: URL directory.

EDIT Also happens for file: URL images viewed directly.

It's not available through updating, and trying to get it from noscript.net returns 404.

Hopefully v 11.0.43 gets pushed out soon. I was having an issue where directly accessed local jpeg and png images would display as text garbage if I trusted the file: site. Oddly, Firefox would say it's an image/jpeg or image/png but was rendering the file as text/plain. With v 11.0.42 a URL such as file://c:/tmp/logo.png would shows as garbage unless I change the settings for the file: site to be either "default" or "untrusted" in NoScript. A file://c:/tmp/logo.htm file containing a single <img src=logo.png> worked find though even when trusted.

This is fixed by v 11.0.43rc1
