Noscript blocks local LAN access

Post by vershner » Wed Nov 09, 2016 5:57 pm

Noscript 3.5a14
Firefox 49.0.2
Android 6.0.1

I recently got a new phone, installed Firefox and Noscript, and all is working fine, except Noscript is blocking access to any web site on the local LAN. I don't mean scripts loading from the LAN, I mean the whole page fails to connect. No error is given, just a blank page.
If I disable Noscript it loads fine.
I tried disabling ABE but that made no difference.
I manually whitelisted the IP I was connecting to, but that made no difference.
I couldn't find any setting that seemed to be connected to LAN access other than ABE.

This used to work with my older phone, with Firefox and Noscript, but I'm not sure what versions they were.

Hmm...that sounds very much like the kind of thing that ABE might do, except that you say it persists with ABE disabled. Might be a bug; Giorgio would need to look into it.

Anything of note noted in Error Console?

It seems they removed the error console.

That doesn't do anything.

Indeed, on mobile that key combination may be difficult...

I don't use NSA myself, so I probably can't help much with debugging it.

How did you go about disabling ABE?

What happens if you go directly to a local page, rather than following a link?

I went into the addons page, into the Noscript settings, and unticked "Enable ABE".

I was going directly to the site before, not from a link.
