My #1 must have add-on. Every negative review on here can be solved simply by either removing sites from the whitelist (which is very easy) or by adding sites to the whitelist (which is very easy). Take 10 minutes to read the FAQ before you throw on a negative review.
Absolutely the most useful add-on on FF. No more ads, no more videos on autoplay, no more music on autoplay. I can actually leave my speakers on at work now ;-)
I got my wife using this and we haven't had malware on our PC since! w00t!
I can't rep this enough.
THANK YOU Giorgio Maone
This is a great extension for the security and privacy paranoid, as well as for those who do a lot of code testing. It's nice to be able to turn code on and off to see what is really causing issues. Really nice add-on.
Essential addon for everyday use
An essential add-on that I could not do without.. Would rate 6/5 if I could.
I love Noscript. I hope it has a general whitelist(well known safe websties) for anybody to use to save the trouble.
However it doesn't use the new add-on bar properly so you can't move the blocking notification in the status bar. Besides which it's ugly and takes up a lot of room with more text than needed:
"Scripts Partially Allowed |
Hello, author, in Firefox 4, can you put NoScript on the good old status bar recreated by the Status-4-Evar extension if it's installed, and wherever FF4 wishes in case it is not?
please update for firefox4. this is one of essential addons for my firefox!
NoScript is compatible with Firefox 4, 5 and even 6 previews.
A must-have addon. Thank you very much.
Essential for browsing the web from a security standpoint. This add-on is the only thing keeping me from switching to Chrome. I also think that Mr. Maone is a fantastic developer. He is very active in updating and responding to users of this *FREE* add-on. Thank you very much sir, your efforts are greatly appreciated!
This is all very good, and the pages load a lot faster. One thing that makes me wonder is "How in the world can I allow Readability on ALL the pages??" Can you give me an instruction?
By the way - Allowing lab.arc90.com and putting it into the white-list Doesn't Help.
Stop complaining. The addon works as advertized. It blocks scripts from running without your permission. Lots of sites use scripts. Once you allow the scripts on the sites you frequently use its not that annoying.
Great addon for the security conscious user, saved me from a few click-jacking attempts. At first was a bit intrusive, because some sites require certain scripts to be allowed, however after learning more about the common scripts that are needed, this has been alleviated. Like the fact it blocks elements that consume bandwidth such as those autoplay videos in ads that I don't intend to watch.
I have been a very satisfied user of the noscript utility. It has been an excellent tool and has been working impeccable. Unfortunately there is no feedback facility and after introduction of FF4, the noscript tool is no longer able to register in the whitelist. Therefore I have had to disable the tool on all my PC's. I will happely return at a later stage when the flaw has been corrected.
First of all: NoScript is an excellent tool!
But, please, keep in mind, it's the same as with real-life-hardware: it's a _tool_ and you need to know what to do with it ... and how to do it :-)
It's not an automatic tool that filters "bad" scripts and lets though "good" scripts. You, yourself, need to know what to block and what to allow. You don't need to be an expert, but you should have at least some very basic knowledge how the internet works and edit your allow or block rules accordingly. If you do, this add-on is really great, if not you should think twice about using it :-)
Excellent. I recommend this add-on along with Adblock to passively secure your computer against spyware and malware.
The add-on performs flawlessly. Some may find it tiresome to allow certain scripts while disallowing others (most especially for file download sites). To me, I found it a learning experience to improve my internetz skilz. it is a tiny issue- overall it saves time and money (especially cleaning a computer of malware crap).
Fix GooglePanel problem, plz!!!
создатели вредоносного П.О.(прототипа похитителей паролей и кошельков) советовали _ всегда отключайте на недоверенных сайтах скрипты! за это "+"
strange bug, when u go on imdb, and go some sub page of imdb, try go back, when u click back button in firefox, it doesnt do anything, u need to click twice !! lol
i tryed enabling all blocked scripts and all blocked embedings, but still needs to be clicked twice, when i disabled addon completely, it goes away....
this only hapenns on imdb.....as i can see for now...
I don't know why ABP is more popular than NoScript. This extension is better at what ABP does, and does much more in a more elegant fashion.

No Script is THE Addon that makes the Firefox to my favorite browser. It saves loading time and give me more safety while browsing. It is easy to use and has a lot of options for configuration.
this seems to interfere with Ghostery after recent updated. It wasn't before. Mainly, the page will not auto load after permission change(option was enabled) and all the scripts list is frozen.
Extremely useful - one of the add-ons to have in an uncertain world where ad networks are serving Java Applet and Flash based exploit payloads. Has saved me from Facebook "like-jacking" attacks.
Whilst at first this add-on can seem an annoyance on some web pages at it causes them not to load properly. When you have chosen the scripts you want to load on the website it is a great form of protection and a great way when combined with add blocker plus to stop all adds. It also shows up how many scripts some websites use to try and harm your computer or track what you are doing.
I have an older computer with low resources..so for me already using adblock-WOT and 2 very good real time malware and virus protections...this became nothing more than a constant annoyance. There seemed some issues convincing it to allow certain websites..or constantly having to allow regular and familiar websites. Much less even trying to surf at all.So for me, not having any current security issues, it is sort of a bummer. Too much of an interference.
Too much security .I think annoyingly unnecessary.
