New behaviour on some sites

Post by guest » Tue Mar 30, 2021 4:39 pm

Thanks for the new version 11.2.4!
It shows the following new behaviour: On sourceforge.net with scripts disabled when navigating from site to site on the right a side bar opens for a short moment and then closes automatically. With scripts enabled or prior to current noscript that didn't happen.

This is due to the new CSS PP0 protection, which may induce a tiny delay in the loading of stylesheets when they're served cross-site.

In the current form it's too much of an annoyance on many sites. It should be reworked to work more silently or be disabled by default.

Btw are there any privacy implications? I avoid unnecessary connections and prefetching. Does this new protection cause additional connections?

In 11.2.5rc1 it can be configured per site (the new "csspp0" capability is enabled where you don't want the protection).

Nope. It just anticipates connections which would be made anyway by the stylesheets, coalescing them so that they can't be used as a CPU timing side channel.
