Noscript Breaking a Website despite Everything 'Trusted'

Post by whiteletter » Fri Jul 02, 2021 6:41 pm

Hi folks.

I'm having an issue on Firefox with noscript and the Musician's Friend website. Basically it breaks it for me, unless I set it, every time, to 'disable restrictions for this tab'. There's no way for me to set all the sites listed when I visit it to 'trusted' because even when they're all set to trusted, the page is still broken.

Why is this the case? What's being blocked that I can't set to 'trusted' because it's not listed? Is there a workaround beside either disabling noscript or clicking 'disable restrictions for this tab' every time I visit?

Is this a problem local to my particular setup or duplicatable for other folks here? Thanks.

Following up I see there are other posts here with similar issues.

I checked 'unrestricted CSS' for trusted websites, and that fixes the breakage. Can anyone tell me more about what 'unrestricted CSS' is?

"Unrestricted CSS" means that NoScript skips some additional checks on visual stylesheets which make sense where scripts are disabled and attackers may reach for additional means to work around the blocking.
Having it checked on TRUSTED sites is the recommended setting.

FYI I had this issue as well. As of the 11.2.9 update, 'unrestricted CSS' was un-checked for trusted sites. Checking it resolved problems loading various sites.
