How to Undo Cross-Script block

Post by AuntyJack » Sat Feb 01, 2020 10:20 am

When clicking on a Google link to a Wikipedia article, I got the popup message about cross-scripting, but stupidly clicked "Always block". Now I cannot open any Wiki links in Google. How do I undo this?

If you don't have any XSS choices you care about, you can just go NoScript Options > Advanced and click "Clear XSS Choices".

If you have other XSS choices you would like to preserve, there isn't currently any user-friendly way to do this, but it can still be done:

1) Export your entire NoScript config

2) Open the export file in a text editor, manually delete the offending entry from "xssUserChoices" section

3) import the modified NoScript config
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Thanks Barbaz! I'll need to do it the long way, but hopefully this will do the trick.

Glad to see there's a solution to that, I was stuck as well as I did the same mistake...
