NoScript 11.4.21 Not Working Right

Post by Wandrer »

FireFox 111.1.1 on Android 10
NoScript 11.4.21 Not Working Right
Reinstall did not change a thing.

Exact problem:
Clicking on Add-ons -> NoScript does nothing and the filters are not working at all, but the Addon does slow down the system quite much.

I may have same problem - as well as the 100s of others reading this and the 11.4.20 post from redwolfe_98.
NoScript on Android appears to not load. None of the original NoScript selections are marked and Per-site Permissions spins without loading. Reset does not cause a reset. Import will get out to the previously saved file, but will not load it. Removing NoScript Add-on and reinstalling may or may not work, if one tries it often enough. Shutting the device off/ on also may or may not resolve issue if done multiple times. I have both an Android phone and tablet (different manufacturers & different Android versions), but I have my Firefox, NoScript, and other settings the same (ie VPN) on both. NoScript fails on both devices in the same manner. Not rooted on either device, but willing to try to troubleshoot as best possible if given direction.

My successful work-around:
Delete NoScript Add-on from Firefox
Quit Firefox
Restart Device
Add NoScript Add-on to Firefox
Import previously saved settings
-
Quitting Firefox seems to - mostly - be the trigger for this issue to occur (yet, sometimes quitting FIrefox does not cause the behavior). I have not had the issue occur if I keep Firefox open.

Updated work around for recent Android Firefox 112.1:
NoScript still does not load properly, but it seems a simple refresh of NoScript will then result in a correct load.

I do understand that the moderators are volunteers, but had thought/ hoped this issue would receive some guidance, comment or direction after this much time and with 100s of people viewing the posts.

None of the current "green users" use Android, so we can't help directly here. And I haven't been able to bring things to Giorgio's attention recently (it looks concerning on my end - hope Giorgio is OK Image ). So not sure how we can help this get resolved. Sorry :(
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
