META redirections inside <NOSCRIPT> elements.

Post by Orpheus » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:41 pm

Noscript version 5.x used to have an option to forbid META redirections inside <NOSCRIPT> elements. In the new version I can't find this option and some pages, https://vk.com for example, keep redirecting, rendering the site unusable. Is the feature to block these redirections absent from noscript 10.x? If so, why, and will it return? Is there any other way to block these redirections?

I'm using Firefox 60.3.0 ESR, Noscript 10.1.9.9

Unfortunately it is absent but has been proposed before. Bump.

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

I agree. We probably even want this to be the default, showing a link to the redirection target URL on the top of the page, instead.

Hello!

Updating to NoScript 10.2.0 I got redirection warnings on Google search.
I got this kind of messages before on some other sites, but I don't like this behaviour using my default search engine.

Should I set "accessibility.blockautorefresh" to "true" or is there another hack?

Edit: "accessibility.blockautorefresh" to "false"
