It does so automatically when you leave the site. There are many times we simply want *everything* to load for whatever site we're visiting, without the inconvenience of repeatedly allowing all on page all the way down the chain of scripts until the site starts working correctly, or having to turn Allow Scripts Globally on and off (and having to allow it for all other tabs isn't desired in this case).
Now you may say to blame this on the "trend" in websites or that the (hypothetical) risks are the same in both cases (site gets compromised or whatever), and that's true, but also irrelevant. The "Allow Scripts Globally (dangerous)" is there for a reason, no? Of course it's insecure. Of course it defeats the purpose of NoScript. But that is the end-users' prerogative.
I think that Allow Scripts Globally is useful for:
- Installing NoScript for non-tech-savvy users who just wouldn't be able to use it in a restrictive mode;
- diagnosing obscure errors such as the one at viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8966;
- using NoScript in click-to-play mode.
