NoScript Hangs Now

Post by GordonDelgado » Wed Sep 16, 2020 10:28 pm

I have just re-installed NoScript. The reason is that my DNS server is indicating repeated queries for "" that seemed to be coming from Firefox (when browser was closed, the queries stopped).
Suspecting a FF extension, I did the following:
1) "exported" the NoScript site settings
2) disabled all extensions
3) removed the data files from C:\Users\<myself>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<xxx>.default\extensions
3) removed the moz-extension* folders from C:\Users\<myself>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<xxx>.default\storage\default
4) restarted FF
5) re-installed the extensions
6) attempted to "import" the site settings from step 1

Now, whenever I go to the NoScript management screen I just get a round "progress" indicator...
I can't figure out what's might be going on. Scripts are no longer being blocked <begin-panic>
NoScript 11.0.44
Firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit)
Windows 10

Try again to remove and reinstall NoScript?

Start Firefox with -purgecaches command-line option?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
