[RESOLVED] Where is whitelist stored?

Post by DaveCantor » Sun Sep 04, 2016 2:14 am

An external vendor performed maintenance on my computer and, among other things, set everything in Firefox to defaults, including the NoScript whitelist. I had hundreds of whitelisted sites.

I'm hoping I can find them on a backup. Are they stored in a file somewhere in my Firefox profile?

Thank you. I just restored the entire prefs.js from this morning's backup, and my whitelist, and several dozen other things (maybe hundreds) are back just the way I like them!
