[RESOLVED] NoScript 5.1.2rc3 completely trashes Firefox 45

Post by Thrawn » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:57 pm

Update: I'm still running Firefox 45, and NoScript 5.1.2rc3 completely trashes the browser. Can't open any pages, neither via the address bar nor bookmarks nor menus nor hotkeys, and often it hangs and has to be forcibly closed by the operating system.

Launching it from the command line, I get errors like:

Code: Select all

console.error: slogin: 
  Message: Module `sdk/webextension` is not found at resource://gre/modules/commonjs/sdk/webextension.js
  Stack:
    @resource://slogin/common.js:4:20
run@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/sdk/addon/runner.js:147:19
startup/</<@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/sdk/addon/runner.js:87:9
Handler.prototype.process@resource://gre/modules/Promise-backend.js:933:23
this.PromiseWalker.walkerLoop@resource://gre/modules/Promise-backend.js:812:7
this.PromiseWalker.scheduleWalkerLoop/<@resource://gre/modules/Promise-backend.js:746:1
If I repeatedly close and re-launch the browser, there's about a 25% chance each time that I'll be able to open the addons page and disable NoScript from there :(

You're talking about a specific, concrete compatibility issue with an already-released NoScript version. This is not related to compatibility of NoScript Webext, which hasn't been released yet.

Split to its own thread from https://forums.informaction.com/viewtop ... =8&t=23286 so that this gets proper attention.

I see the same in Firefox 45.9.0. But I don't get any messages in the terminal. If I wait long enough, I get a prompt asking about stopping unresponsive script noscriptBM.js

Specifically, I'm on Firefox 45.0.2.

Based on the error messages that I'm seeing, it does look like something related to WebExtension development (Module `sdk/webextension` is not found at resource://gre/modules/commonjs/sdk/webextension.js).

@Thrawn: Does NoScript latest development build 5.1.3rc1 fix this issue?

Looks to be working again, yes :). Makes sense, Pale Moon APIs would be similar to older Firefox.
