Temporarily Allow a forbidden site

Post by jdurand » Mon Jun 05, 2017 12:11 am

I have a news site forbidden (appears in the UNTRUSTED section because they have auto-play videos I haven't been able to directly block.

Anyway, once or twice a day I use Temporarily Allow the site so I can grab the day's news and one or two other programs I watch there.

The problem: The site STAYS allowed after this, even after rebooting the computer. I have to do a FORBID again to put it back in the untrusted.

I normally remember to re-forbid it when I suddenly have screaming/yelling coming out of my speakers at work because they're doing a live feed of something.

NoScript may not be the best tool for that. Try uBlock Origin.

Like, as in, still in your whitelist?

If so - under NoScript Options > General, do you have either "Temporarily allow top-level sites by default" or "Allow sites opened through bookmarks" checked?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
