Will this be the end of NoScript?

Post by mario78 » Wed Oct 26, 2016 4:52 pm

Hi,

just found this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1286822

Previously, the developer of AdBlock Plus suggested that your addon relies on "beforescriptexecute": https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3207#comment:8 (last commentary, last sentence)

Is this correct? Does that mean, once Mozilla removes those events, NoScript will no longer work?

Looks like it would only affect surrogate script prefixed with < or >

(Not that I have any clue about any of this stuff...)

With these standardized events, an extension like NoScript can become more realistic for Chrome.


Maybe the end of any possible NoScript for Chrome?

Maybe more:

Code: Select all

noscript.surrogate.obse.sources = @*

noscript.surrogate.obse.replacement =

function onBeforeScriptExecute(e) {
  if(e.target.src) {
    console.log("[obse] ExternalScript " + e.target.src);
  }
  else {
    console.log("[obse] InlineScript");
  }
}
document.addEventListener("beforescriptexecute", onBeforeScriptExecute, true);

I wonder how many surrogates, greasemonkey scripts, and other consumers are out there.

I found one in my PM inbox. Will notify the sender about this thread.
