Noscript and CCleaner

Post by frustratedalot » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:59 am

I have used the ver 5 last few years no problems. I had to dl firefox 57 and then noscript ver 10. I was about to throw the computer, i miss the bar at the bottom of the screen to look and choose options. I went back to older firefox and noscript ver 5. I also use CCcleaner and I wonder how that will affect ver 10 of noscript once it's all fixed to operate like noscript ver 5? I mean, typically run CCleaner each time I turn computers on and it did mess with what was not allowed and allowed in noscript ver 5. I can only imagine now with 10 how much more pain in the azz as just reading all the problems hear on the forum with ver 10! I mean each time w/ ver 5 I had to mess with setting after CCleaner on what was allowed and not, you imagine with ver 10?!?!? There any time on when ver 10 will be finalized to basically operate like ver 5 and be able to go back to firefox 57 and later with noscript ver 10? I guess for now I will use older ver 5 of noscript and firefox.

Never let CCleaner near anything to do with Firefox. It is well known to corrupt profiles and cause issues.

I have not had any issue's w/ CCleaner, what would you recommend in place of it? I have used it for several years and still use on XP desktop. Any word on a stable ver 10 noscript to operate smooth and maybe like ver 5?

No need to completely drop CCleaner. Just don't clean anything Firefox with it. Firefox can clean itself.

...so where is the option in firefox to del, clean, remove,etc.....? I can run CCleaner and at times it will show cleaned 1.5meg to 20meg, just kind of depends on internet usage and sites I visited.

I was thinking that, I fig there was deeper one that did more. I went and looked at what CCleaner does it does "internet explorer".
