- Rated 3 out of 5by bosch1516, 3 years agoIt works as it should, but the redesigned interface does not show the full script in the drop-down list which feels like I'm flying blind on what I'm allowing or blocking. I found better that works as well.
- Rated 3 out of 5by evets90, 4 years agoI wish it would have a button that could just make a website work. It's such a pain to have to manually fix every site with this extension. Please make it more user friendly.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14554915, 4 years agoI had to roll it back to an earlier version 10.2.0 , this new version forgets its settings and is horrid to use. Love the previous versions tho. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/versions/
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13036312, 4 years agodoes its job, but.. and this is an annoying but...
It sometimes forgets settings. I will flag a page as safe, like dailymotion for example, and I will come back after a while and it will be reset to default (blocked).
This means I have to flag the site as safe again, in order to watch videos, browse, or even have the page load in some cases. VERY annoying.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Maja Potega, 4 years agoDas Plugin wurde von Firefox empfohlen aber die Einstellung ist zu kompliziert. Die Menüführung ist ganz anders als auf den Screenshots. Die Beschreibung ist auf einer Extraseite, auf der sich wiederum mehrere Weiterleitungslinks befinden. Ich habe es wieder entfernt, weil zu User unfriendly.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14298576, 4 years agoFirst off, I've used NoScript for a number of years and have donated and am hovering between 2-3 stars due to the terrible UI.
Unfortunately the UI remains extremely poor, with confusing wording and very bad icon designs (w.r.t usability, nevermind esthetics). The UI uses double negatives, which is bad (ref: MS and Apple). This may be a side effect of Italian translation.
There is not differentiation with colour: blue and red are used in the icons regardless if something is "safe" or "unsafe". The exclamation mark doesn't work that well for conveying meaning (it's "sort of" a warning, but then the "stop sign" is also used - but now the stop sign means, "stop restricting" (again - double negative))
S!: disable restrictions (change icon. to, almost anything, change wording to: "Allow everything (including blocked scripts)")
!: disable restrictions for this tab (change icon to almost anything else, change wording to: "Allow everything on this tab. (Maintain restrictions on blocked domains)")
Clock!: Set all to temporarily trusted (change icon, "Temporarily Trust everything on this tab. (Maintain restrictions on blocked domains)" )
Clock + Stop symbol: revoke temporary permissions (change icon, wording to "Normal operation"?)
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13543432, 5 years agoThe previous version was nearly perfect. The new... I don't like it, especially because of the new UI, but it is a must on the net.
A feature request: is it possible, to sort sites by default, temp.trusted, trusted, untrested in the menu?

"Sadly, I have to agree with some of the other reviews.....
The new version is quite simply, POO.
This is perfectly illustrated by the fact that I had to re-allow scripts that had been set as trusted just to post this sad reflection on what was, for the most part a highly useful and mature extension with a user interface that was relatively straight forward to interpret and use.
The new interface is Terrible to put it mildly. Its over 'simplification' and design has produced a bewildering experience that makes ones head ache in a state of near vertigo when first used. Just to add insult to injury, as previously stated, you will probably have repeat the process when the settings are forgotten.
No script has always been annoying when visiting a site for the first time. Identifying the minimum scripts allowed for site functionality whilst blocking the rest, was a tedious process but it was offset by the fact it only had to be done once. The result was a huge dividend of security, privacy, speed of page load, reduced memory usage and increased stability to the browser as a whole from avoiding execution of unnecessary and in many cases poorly written, bloated code.
In short the new NoScript is a horrible disappointment, in stark contrast to the wonderful browsing experience of Firefox 57"
At that time I felt the review was completely justified.
But, there is hope!
The UI is improving and in some ways, superior to the old which I think we all have to agree was a bit clumsy.
I understand now the 'forgetting' of settings directly attributable to the API changes in Quantum and Mozillas role in it and the unfair but understandable scorn from users like myself who have become accustomed to features being removed and UI changes from likes of Microsoft and others in the name of 'progress' and our willingness to unload both barrels as a result.
I persisted with noscript, temporally allowing just about everything, relying on Sandboxie protection.
It improves with every update to my everlasting gratitude and I cannot wait for the day I rate it 5 stars!
THANK YOU to the developer(s) for all of your hard work and persistence in the face of mounting criticism from people like myself.
No Script is in my opinion a vital extension for security, privacy, stability, user control and the enrichment of the browsing experience...
