NoScript and Facebook

Post by Bencyc » Mon Apr 02, 2018 12:57 pm

My NoScript shows on many sites Facebook.com which I have set untrusted.
Although I am not in Facebook myself I am interested to know if
NoScript is making "Facebook Container" unnecessary? I hope to be able to advise my friends and
relatives accordingly.

Moving to NoScript General.

I would say no. The two addons seem to have very different functionality.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

That s pity. I do not like adding too many add-ons on my Firefox.

There is a good development project to do something to NoScript !

The thread is old, but maybe you are going to read it: it isn't necessary to install an add-on to activate the functionality of containers. As being described here it is sufficient to set some options in about:config as follows:

Code: Select all

privacy.userContext.enabled=true
privacy.userContext.ui.enabled=true
privacy.userContext.longPressBehavior=2
