With the conversion to FF 57, all my old NS preferences were lost.
Since the FF 57 upgrade, I've been hit with gobs of popups, annoying video ads, and fake ransomware and fake password harvesters (or at least pages I closed as quickly as I could get around their locks). And my computer has crashed a few times, as well as FF needing re-installed. Overall a very poor experience with both FF and NS.
When I click on the (S), it shows sites are mostly set as "Default". Initially it appears as if the offsite scripts are being blocked with a big red (S)
However, it turns out that one has to click on each line to see what is actually "Default", which seems to mostly be enabled by default.
- Please DISABLE everything by default as with the old system. Possibly make known "content media" sites obvious to re-enable if desired. Or, list known sites by content, ads, tracking, etc.
- Make it obvious what is enabled/disabled (by default). Perhaps even show the new feature of script types. All disabled, All enabled, Partially enabled.
- Perhaps add an option for User (beginner/normal/expert) or security defaults. Thus an expert user can block EVERYTHING and re-enable as needed, while an amateur user could have the defaults set for a reasonably safe and easy browsing experience out of the box.
