- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 12255157, 5 years agoIf I go to the Firefox extensions and click on "More" for NoScript, then click on the reviews to get the reviews for the script and then click on the button to sign in so that I can comment, Firefox gives me a 500 error if NoScript is enabled - even though mousing over the icon in the tool bar shows 0/0. If I disable NoScript I can log in without a problem. I found a similar situation on an on-line banking site last night - even though NoScript showed 0/0 I had to disable it in order to be able to submit a form.
In V10.1.4 this no longer seems to be a problem - at least for logging in to post reviews here, I haven't tried the banking site again yet.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 12962480, 5 years agoHaving initially thought this extension was the cause of some websites not working properly, I uninstalled it and continued to have trouble. I then found that AddBlockPlus can cause some websites to not work correctly and they work after disabling ABP. Reinstalled NoScript and doing further testing.
However, I'm not particularly rapt in the UI.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13552634, 5 years agoThe new version was horrible to begin with, but it's been gradually smoothing out. The new interface still feels odd, but I'll let it ride a few weeks and see how it shapes up. For the most part I've been browsing the sites that have existing rules from the old version without issues. Today, however, I logged into Office 365 for a customer and nothing at all would load. The only option in NoScript was for Microsoft.com and it was already allowed. I had to disable the extension to get the website to work in Firefox. I would think this is a pretty high profile site that should not be having those sorts of issues.
- Rated 3 out of 5by randy826, 5 years agoEvery time I click on the NoScript icon to set allow/block sites, the Firefox window is un-maximized. Very Annoying! I preferred the original method with the simple drop-down list. It was much easier to see the status of each site and to change the status.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 12980506, 5 years agoIt seems much less effective than before, I can't figure out how to exclude primary domains from filtering as I could do before. And don't know why window resizes when the icon is clicked... Dài grande Giorgio, ce la puoi fare!
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13548239, 5 years agoHorrid excuse of a script blocker. Firstly, I can't even get it to just open normally, it has to open a whole tab of everything I have open, not just the tab I am on, secondly, clicking the icon, takes me out of full window mode, into smaller window mode which is just annoying as can be. Why can't you make it as user friendly, and easy as ScriptSafe on Chrome?
- Rated 3 out of 5by ExplodingCore, 5 years agoOne of the most important add-ons!
I miss the old design, although I have to say the new one gets better and better with each update.
Unfortunately there is a bug in the latest version. Every single time you click the NoScript Button, Firefox is forced to windowed mode. Very annoying.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13541802, 5 years agoFor people having problems with NoScript blocking sites even when they are trusted: I found that removing the add-on completely (rather than disabling it), restarting firefox and then reinstalling the add-on fixed this for me. Sites now appear to respect the settings I select in NoScript. I guess this is something to do with needing to request the proper permissions from firefox, and NoScript is perhaps failing to do this for people who updated automatically?
In any event, the new GUI is a bit of a mess. I don't think I'd have any clue how to use the current version if I hadn't seen the old version and knew that I was expecting to choose between permanently or temporarily allowing scripts etc. Words are always better unless you're expecting your users to be using an icon almost constantly.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13540287, 5 years agoHaving used NoScript for several years and never having supported makes it a a bit difficult for me to give it one star, hence the three. My situation is the same as reported by many others, the UI is just over-complicated, not all scripts show on the list, when I (de-)authorize scripts often the page does not reload and the problems continue. I had to disable it yesterday after giving it a try for 1+ weeks, but I sincerely hope that this returns to what it used to be - one of my TOP5 security/privacy apps for FF.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13538993, 5 years agoThis really was a must have for all users of Mozilla, I had been using this add-on several years ago, and it help me to block a lot of trash content like banners, pop-up windows, etc. However, since the last update of the web browser (57), this does not work anymore, blocks everything, and is hard to understand how it works.
I know all the hard work of the developer to keep running this add-on, and I know this is not your fault, but please, make it work again, no pressure. Your app was really good!!!
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13538904, 5 years ago#### How I fixed the last noscript problem on Firefox Quantum.
Note: Before considering using this fix, **backup your important Firefox data, such as bookmarks, etc. just in case.**
1st. I went to about:support and I clicked on “Refresh Firefox”. **Watch out, this will remove your default Firefox settings and add-ons.** Once you do this, you have to start from scratch.
2nd. I went to about:addons and I told Firefox not to automatically update add-ons.
3rd. I installed the first noscript version for Firefox Quantum from noscript repositories:
4th. I installed the rest of the add-ons I used to have before.

At this time it seems to Still be having a few problems..
I love this program and so do my friends. It has Many good uses for protection.
Problem Im having is that it ports ?? scripts but Does not SHOW all of them to be OK'd or Blocked.
It really sucks when Im trying to do online bills and Banking..I cant see that 1-2 scripts to allow the page..
(pages generally with FLASH)..
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13190973, 5 years agoold one was good, but this version seems to be slower and freezes sometimes, not like the old one. also, every time i open firefox i get a pop-box from no-script that is blank that i have to keep closing which is annoying. i disabled for now.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13537236, 5 years agoIt was my favorite addon until now. It absolutely unusable. New interface is terrible. Old was userfriendly and simple. Even if i add some resource to witelist - i have problems. Addon just break look and behaviour of site. SHIT
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13535747, 5 years agoThe latest update (28th of November) blocks too many scripts. For example, I can't load images on Google even if the site is flagged as "trusted". By disabling Noscript everything works fine.
Please fix the issue.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Mcmacladdie, 5 years agoDecent extension, but the current version has issues where whitelisted sites refuse to stay whitelisted, or will lose their whitelisted status until a tab is closed and then re-opened. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
- Rated 3 out of 5by David, 5 years agoGet Firefox pre-Quantom here (and make sure to disable Firefox autoupdate and background update services):
Find older version of NoScript here:
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13522774, 5 years agoI have had nothing but a positive experience with No Script for a few years now, I really do wish we had the old UI back however. The new one isn't so user friendly. But I am thankful for this free service and acknowledge the developers in creating a very useful add on over the years.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13520787, 5 years agoBroken with latest update.
I'm NOT ok with the removal of noscript from the context menu and having to go to the radio icon to make changes each time.
Equally changes do not take effect 100% of the time, or at all. I can approve a site and on reload of the page the settings are back to default. This prevents me from even loading some pages because it simply won't save settings. I've now had to disable the extension to even do things.
I've used this addon for years and can not understand the latest move... even the menu options have been reduced to nothing compared to previous versions.
