Site required for imgur not listed in NoScript popup despite only NoScript blocking it

Post by barbaz » Thu Nov 11, 2021 3:28 pm

NoScript 11.2.12rc3
Firefox 94.0.1

Getting an imgur image page to work, e.g. https://imgur.com/eS7kwAr, requires allowing "js.media-lab.ai". But in my main profile media-lab.ai is not listed in the NoScript popup. If I manually enter js.media-lab.ai in NoScript Options > Per-site Permissions, the site works.

NoScript popup does show media-lab.ai in a new, clean profile. In my main profile it works as expected if I stop setting dom.serviceWorkers.enabled to false. I can confirm this in a new profile only if I allow imgur.com before ever visiting it.

Why media-lab.ai does not show in NoScript popup? Why does it depend on ServiceWorkers being enabled? Is there any way around this apparent dependency?

Thanks

Confirmed.
Though if you refresh the page, at that point media-lab.ai does then turn up.
(Why? Don't ask me.)

Hey, you know, the latest & greatest. And 1,001 domains, and...

And, for those who still use real browsers ;-) - where imgur.com wouldn't work, otherwise!, https://imgur.com/beta/disable.
(With that, only imgur.com is needed.)
(Oddly, perhaps because of UA sniffing?, that doesn't seem to help in FF 94?)

In FF, Tools [menu item] does not have a 'Cookies' entry.
I can believe it :roll:.
So what, you have to go to Settings | Privacy & Security | Cookies & Site Date | Manage Data...
And then once you get there, you can't even see the individual cookies, only the site name.
Well, gee.
Oh, & then, after you Remove a site, you then have to actually 'Save Changes'.
Unbelievable.
Well, I can believe it :roll:.
And then, even after clicking 'Save Changes', at that point, you're then thrown yet another - totally different type of dialog, saying that removing cookies is dangerous for your health, at which point you have to then click 'Remove', yet again.
That is totally absurd!
And that, I cannot believe.)
