- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13549703, 5 years agoSo I load a page and the addon button shows a tiny "3", but lists only one domain. I allow all from that domain, reload and the page still doesn't work. How do I see the other 2 domains?!
Then I try the NoScript settings only to find that:
- it by default allows scripts from a bunch of sites that I don't trust,
- there is no way to auto-block all the domains in that list,
- all the old settings are gone .. can't find them anywhere.
Uninstalled.. fortunately, it still works in a slightly older version of FF.
Rating 2 based on the average experience.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13537226, 5 years agoSu Firefox Quantum ha perso molte delle sue caratteristiche e delle possibilità di configurazione. Ora si limita a disattivare gli script con la possibilità di inserire i siti in una white list. Un po quello che faceva l'estensione NOscript.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13548373, 5 years agoThis used to be my go-to script blocker and it was fantastic. With the latest update though to make it work for the new Firefox, everything is upside down and it's more or less unusable in its current state. The addon's menu keeps bugging out and cant decide whether to be a dropdown like before or a standalone window. Furthermore I can no longer easily whitelist entire pages except for temporarily which is rather tedious for sites I visit alot. That it also refuses to save my settings for a specific site (where I have taken the time to click which parts of it I want to trust and which not) just makes the experience more frustrating.
Please return this addon to its former look and functionality, it was much much better.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13547390, 5 years agoUnable to use the newer addon now. Doesn't work now. I'm currently using the 10.1.3 version now but can't get the web browser to work until the addon is disabled again. If the pages are marked to allow access, evetually they get to a state to show allowed but shown in red text. If you toggle not allow allow it doesnt get back to a usable state. I can't even search google now, with page allowed, it doesn't let you select any items returned from a search. Please sort the issue because this is the best software to do the job of blocking items. We appreciate your work, but 2 stars to show it is really busted with the newer firefox version
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13547357, 5 years agoWhat a shame! This new UI is horrible.
I can´t get some web-pages to work and looking at the new version, it´s anything but self-explanatory.
Is the protection ON or OFF?!" I don´t know....
Please, update the UI to the older one!
- Rated 2 out of 5by Eelco, 5 years agoI really, really like NoScript. Since the disastrous upgrade of NoScript for FF57 I check upgrades daily. And I guess the author is working on it realy hard, making it work again relatively well on nov 30th. I understand what he wants to doe with the new layout, a table in stead of a list with websites, making it more manageable when pages depend on a lot of domains for their scripts. But the way this is introduced is terrible. I hope for better and stable version management in the future.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13545721, 5 years agoI used to depend on NoScript but now with Firefox 57 the new version is just a disaster. Links don't works and can't figure out why, almost no configuration options. It makes Firefox unusable. Hopefully it will get better over time. I understand it had to be re-written. It's sad but I just can't recommend anymore. Makes me want to go back to FF 56 and the old Noscript.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13541139, 5 years agoWhile being a very satisfied user of NoScript before Firefox 57, using NoScript currently is an absolute horror. Again and again some websites are not working properly. So it has become a daily task for me to check NoScript for updates hoping for the basic functionality to come back soon and for bugs being fixed. I will still give NoScript some more days to get improved. But all in all, it's a quite poor reputation for an addon developer to miss the release of this big Firefox update and leave his addon unusable for so long time.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12959496, 5 years agoAcutally a great plugin which I've used for several years. But the new design is confusing (for example the links are shortened badly, so I see only a really short part of the link) and I have problems with the new version. A lot of pages aren't working anymore, so I had to disable NoScript... I hope the developer is fixing the problems in the near feature, then I will update my rating.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13538324, 5 years agoDon't mean to be too critical, I am hoping that this app will be fixed in time.
But it is basically unusable. It doesn't show all scripts on a page, has some apparently random way of pre-allowing some, the selective temporary command is very confusing, with 6 sub options......
I have gone back to Firefox 52 and the old add-on for the foreseeable.
Hope to be able to upgrade at some point.
I'd second the desire to have the noScript interface be returned to something similar to the last one. It was comprehensible, customizable and flexible.
One of the best extensions ever seems to have taken a very bad turn. Time to correct the course.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12839, 5 years agoEDIT: OK after some time playing around with the settings I understand it much better and the functionality appears to work well. I suggest people experiment with the settings a bit, or check out the noscript forum where there are some explanations of the UI if you find the relevant threads.
In the meantime, I will keep my 2-star rating until a proper help guide to the UI is incorporated into the addon as a link, and an on-boarding process for new installations includes a pop up alerting users to the guide as this is sorely needed, especially for users of the old add-on. This rating reflects my experience as a new user, not my experience now, as this is more relevant to potential new users reading these reviews.
I agree with others that I do not really know how to use this addon any more whereas I had perfect intuition of it pre-57 days. The interface is non-intuitive and is not really explained anywhere. After some time I think I am beginning to understand it but I am still not sure because I cannot reference what I think against official documentation. The latter would help a lot.
I don't blame the addon developer, as he probably had to develop it in his spare time in time for release 57. i acknowledge the effort to upgrade the addon to the new API while many other developers gave up. Thank you, Giorgio for that.
I do blame Mozilla somewhat for switching to a substandard extension API and not having certain vital API features available to developers to test until very late (and some not even yet existing). I realise there were some reasons to make the change, but they should have considered the effect on the existing users and developers and tried to mitigate it somehow.
While I agree that expressing such anger in obscene words is inappropriate, it is appropriate to give an honest review and rating. My rating expresses what I currently think about this addon and is by no means an emotional reaction to change.
I am sure that many improvements will come and user feedback will be acknowledged by the developer. I encourage him to ignore the insults and continue. My review and rating will improve as the addon improves in my estimation.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13209211, 5 years agoThe new version is almost useless. Many sites won't work properly even with all allowed. The NoScript menu seems to only show a few of the scripts the page has so I am unable to allow all needed scripts. Even allow globally doesn't help. Had to disable the app completely. Please make a better version, I like the app and have been using it for years.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13525918, 5 years agoPeut être que c'est un bon produit, mais il est inutilisable pour moi, car il ne parle pas Français.
N'y a t-il aucune solutions pour avoir une traduction ?
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13499244, 5 years agoI'm gonna go back from 5 stars to 2 stars. When I got used to the new GUI, it was fine so no complaints there... It just made Firefox (quantum) a hell of a lot slower and a lot of short freezes.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13519282, 5 years agoOh gawd halp. Absolutely will not stop tossing the XSS box into my face. I can't disable it. Even if I completely disable the XSS "protection" It still won't stop tossing the box in my face, and if I tell it to "always allow" it still tosses the box up! LE URGHAURRF
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13518868, 5 years agoI really liked this extension but the latest update has ruined it. The new UI is very unintuitive and difficult to use. I struggled to get permissions to apply on a website; it kept resetting every time I closed the NoScript settings. Also, I was in those settings because NoScript now has broken most of my RSS feeds on Firefox. I do not know why or how but the only way I seem to get all my RSS feeds working is by disabling NoScript.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Rob Kent, 5 years agoFirstly let me say that I am a long time user of NoScript and I have sent monetary contributions to the developer at least once, possibly more often. It is a *free* addon that obviously takes many hours of work to maintain. The developer should be given thanks and respect for doing that voluntarily. No self-respecting developer sets out to make mistakes or produce something that users don't want.
So something has gone badly wrong with this release. There are two aspects to it that I can see: the script blocking operation, and the UI. Some sites that I visited no longer work with NoScript enabled, even if you allow everything. Amazon music (play sample) didn't work for me, just one example. So that needs sorting out.
As for the UI, I initially found it complicated and confusing but I am getting used to it now. What happened to the middle-click functionality?
But until the developer has managed to fix the functionality, I have to disable it. I may just end up using the Brave browser until it is fixed.
Oh, and I would like a way to save my Whitelist so that I don't lose it if I uninstall and reinstall.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Franz Schneider, 5 years agoThis was a five-star add-on prior! I LOVED it! What happened to the user interface and the options panel with all of its features? This add-on is a mess now.
- Rated 2 out of 5by frede_256, 5 years agoEven as a long time user of NoScript this UI absolutely kills the experience.
I still think there is hope though. Something as little as getting the mouse-over menu activation to work would make it feel not nearly as bad.
The new HTTPS detection is also one of the greatest offenders in breaking website functionality and there isn't even a proper explanation for how or why it works. I had to experiment my way to discovering this.
