- by wolfgang8741, 10 months agoRated 3 out of 5Nice effort, but the usability for end users still is quite a burden and lacks a reliable reporting mechanism to inform websites and put social pressure on them.
I'm kind of surprised there isn't an option to track and manually report sites to add social pressure in an aggregate public list of sites who are not meeting freejs practices.
A community generated report card of sites meeting or failing the different standard would provide a path to sites to improve their freejs compliance especially if each criteria matched rules used and options to fix the issues.
- by Firefox user 11640498, a year agoRated 3 out of 5This is perhaps one of the best add-ons out there, deserving thousand of stars. Sadly, I can only give 3 stars because the current GUI makes this add-on unusable.
I perfectly can live with blocked stuff, but I need a handy friendly GUI to unblock stuff. Your current GUI presents an endless list of blocked stuff, and this makes almost impossible the browser experience. If you allow me a suggestion, a kind of uMatrix GUI here will be great. You must present the blocked stuff in a way that the user easily can block or unblock stuff. Perhaps the uMatrix layout wont work... okay, no problem... but please, try something different than the current endless list of blocked stuff.
Also will be nice options to choose categories of blocked JS (not just "accepted" and "blocked").
If you can do that, I'm sure this will become one of most used add-ons.
Thank you in advance!
- by JCOX, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I give 5 stars because I support the FSF, however this plugin is not reading some licenses present on the current version of WordPress at /wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js and wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery-migrate.min.js
- by jawz101, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5It would be nice to know exactly how you know whether a bit of code is free or not. Does the file have to put little licensing blurbs in every file on their site saying that they have to comply with certain terms of service that a group of people say are acceptably free? It's as silly as someone saying "address me as Lord Firefox." It sounds like a silly, toe cheese eating, impractical concept.
- by andreymal, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5It does not block proprietary scripts. It says that a page has no scripts, but a page has lots of proprietary js, and they are working. (I tried to create a bugreport with steps to reproduce on savannah.gnu.org, but the register page does not work lol) Also, librejs is VEEEEEERYYYY SLOOOOOOW, Firefox freezes for 20-30 seconds while librejs is trying to analyze scripts.
- by Firefox user 14072894, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5More convenient than the old XUL one, makes me want to use it again. (And I did installed it just now.)
Feature Request: Can you add a button to temporally allow current page's domain?
And it's better to add another button to let us temporally disable it conveniently.
