NoScript stopped updating itself

Post by editor » Mon Nov 26, 2018 6:35 pm

I have NoScript 5.1.8.4 installed and noticed the latest version is 10.2.1. Apparently my browser Firefox 54.0.1 64-bit needs updating? After browser update, just install NEW version over top over previous one?

Thanks,

NoScript 10 is for FF Quantum.

The latest for FF 54 (that's quite an odd number to be using) is NoScript "Classic" (5.1.9).
That should update, should there be further updates.

Thanks, I tried to install 5.1.9 but it failed, even though xpinstall.signatures.required is set to FALSE. Must be the `odd version´ that you speak of?

The bigger problem I'm having is the pop-up or banner at the bottom of MANY webpages now.. that says I MUST AGREE to allow tokens and scripts "to use this site." See post from today: Problem with MOST sites. Maybe should update to the latest version of Firefox 64-bit? What NoScript version for that?

Thank you, it's going to take time to study all that. There's been a LOT of tech problems that started in the past few months. It sux trying to solve them all at once and `play ball´ with Big Tech.

Anyone care to post quick summary answer? What is best 64-bit FF version to use now? and the latest NoScript?
