NoScript 11.2.11 appears to cause Firefox "access denied" error

Post by chompitty » Thu Aug 19, 2021 12:01 pm

When using NoScript, Firefox throws an "access denied" error on certain web sites.

With NoScript on, I visit e.g. https://www.autozone.com or https://www.oreillyauto.com . The page loads correctly without JavaScript. I left-click on NoScript and select "set all on this page to temporarily trusted." On reload (usually but not always) Firefox throws the following error:

Access Denied
You don't have permission to access "http://www.autozone.com/" on this server.
Reference #...

This also happens if I select "disable restrictions globally" instead. There are a number of reports of similar errors w/r/t Firefox itself, but none of the solutions mooted there (e.g., using HTTPS instead of HTTP or clearing cookies). Also, while this happens occasionally with NoScript disabled, it happens frequently with it enabled.

Details:
Firefox 91.0 64-bit
Ubuntu 20.04.2
NoScript 11.2.11

Thanks.

I cannot reproduce this with NoScript 11.2.12rc1, Firefox 90, Ubuntu 21.04. What other extensions are you using?
