Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello I must say I am disappointed by this new version, i never know what to do to get a clean internet browsing as I used to with further versions. Keep the effort, your tool is very useful. I think i will reset the rules I have, to re-start with something clean. I hope I will see clearer!

On my Ubuntu16.04 desktop, the latest version's setting page always stuck Firefox.

every action has its opposition! Wrapping is bad. Yes, a noscript! No cheating!

What do you mean?

Not sure what you mean here.

Putting 5 stars for a future excellent version of the noscript is wrong, unfair. We need to evaluate the current version of how it works. I estimate in 1 star - this is absolutely fair, because half of the functions from the previous noscript simply cut. The interface does not evolve, it's incomprehensible, as if I should guess the charade when I use the new interface. And those who put 5 stars - just a wrap-up rating, it's already trite. Unfortunately the noscript in its present form is dead. When he resurrects - it all depends on the author's noscript. Or rather, the universe will change and the Moon will fall on our planet, and the noscript will not change and will wind up the rating for garbage. It's unfortunate.

Was Great. Now it doesn't save configuration. Every time I visit a site I have to unblock it. and yes I have triple checked that I am unblocking permanently.

Yeah, it's a complete and utter mess. Unfortunately it's also unreliable and untrustworthy. What happened? Money too tempting?

Giorgio? Just .. accept the fact that you f**ked up the UI and redesign it. This is a fight you can't win if you want to keep your most loyal and vocal users.

You also need to adress the fact that the perma-allowed sites make it look like you're a sellout. Your default whitelist choices are maybe not our choices... Yandex? ffs.

If we can't trust the script doing what it is supposed to do, what's the point in having it installed?

And to those that give it 5 stars and writes "it will be good in the future." Yah, you're really thick aren't you?
The stupid. It hurts. Vote on what it is now, not what it MIGHT become. It could also get worse.

Yandex has been removed from the default whitelist. Which, BTW, is just the same as it was on NoScript 5. And there's nothing as a "perma-allowed site". You can delete everything by setting it to default.

This is an excellent addon. There are many people complaining about the last versions. Yes, the new version has some problems and sometimes it does not work as expected. But, please, be patient, those problems will probably be gone soon and it will be a great piece of software again.

So, stop complaining and start collaborating (by submiting bugs, donating or whatever).

Absolutely necessary add-on in my everyday browsing life. The new version works nice even though the interface needs more polish, which is to be expected after the release of a new version. It is a little bit unintuitive (that is why I give it 4 stars at its current state) but offers more choices in finetuning a pages permissions.

Go, Giorgio. This add-on rocks.

This addon has improved a lot after all the recent updates. Also, i may be in the minority here, but i really like the new UI.. The options page however is still sluggish, to the point that it is unusable to me.. ( with an 8 core CPU,16 GB RAM, Radeon RX 480 8 GB computer). So 4 stars because it still has issues.

War echt gut, aber die neueste Version ist echt mies. Viel zu umständlich und ich kann nicht einfach eine Seite erlauben :(

Thanks for this wonderful extension!

For some reason blocked some functionality of other add-on Gesturefy by Robbendebiene, Itch. But it was fixed some time later after I've disabled and reenabled NoScript add-on and restart Firefox.

旧バージョンを愛用していたのですが、57対応のがあまりに評判が悪いので躊躇していました。
今日試しに入れてみて、たしかにインターフェースなどは最初戸惑いますが、意味がなんとなくわかればすぐ慣れました。

旧版のときにエクスポートしていたホワイトリストを反映する方法がわかりませんでしたが、それも下記の方法で自己流解決。
新版のをとりあえずそのままエクスポートしてみたところ、noscript.json というファイルが出来ます。その中身を見たら「な~んだ」です。
これをテキストエディタで開き、旧版のホワイトリストの中身を新しい形式に整えて所定の位置に羅列して保存。
そして、その noscript.json をインポートしたら、あっけなく旧版と同じ設定に戻りました。ページビューのレスポンスは旧版より速い感じがします。
(以上の件、正式なスマートな方法があるのに気付いてないだけかもしれませんが...。)

使い勝手があと一歩良くなれば星5つにするところです。期待します。

I loved the old no script. I understand it had to change, but the new UI is completely unintuitive. That however is not the reason for my 1 star rating. It doesn't seem to work as intended. When it blocks required functions of a website that I need, it used to be simple to find the one or two sites I needed to enable to get the site to function, and still keep all of the ads and other crap blocked. Now it's quite difficult. So when I get frustrated and just choose temporarily allow allow all on this page, the site is STILL blocked. I have to disable the app to access the site. It completely defeats the purpose. Now i'm searching for alternatives.

Recently I gave this a 3-star review (I believe the version at the time was 10.1.3 or thereabouts), with my two biggest issues being the dramatic performance impact on certain websites (TweetDeck in particular just froze up for minutes at a time) and the irritating intrusiveness of the XSS popups, especially since it kept forgetting my per-site settings.

I’m happy to report both these issues have since been fixed some time in the last few days – I’ve stopped experiencing freeze-ups, and whilst I’m still a bit annoyed at the XSS popups, now they at least remember my settings so they stop pestering me when I revisit a site afterwards. For these reasons, I’m changing my rating to 5 stars, the same I would have given before the WebExtension update.

Finally, a suggestion about the UI (and unlike too many here, I perfectly understand you can’t bring the old one back). I’m getting used to it and it’s become almost second-nature to use. However, one thing I find somewhat unintuitive about it is the layout of the Default/Trusted/Untrusted/Custom buttons: specifically, how choosing one causes it to expand, taking up space previously used by the other buttons. I always felt it might feel simpler and smoother if the buttons had a static width and all displayed their text labels even when unselected. Then upon clicking one, it would darken or grow brighter or something to show it’s been selected, without changing shape or position.

Just my two cents. I know you’re getting hammered a lot and I sympathize. Your hard work and devotion shows. It’s been bumpy, but the new NoScript is now at a place where I’m happy to use it and recommend it. Please keep up the good work.

Absolute Garbage.

Please, explain in the add-on description why does NoScript now ask for a new permission to "download files and read and modify the browser's download history".

Besides, the new UI quite sucks, but the rules list semi-transparency seems to be what makes the NoScript Settings page sluggish.

I've loved this add-on for many years but it's gone downhill pretty quickly and now it's asking for new permissions without explaining why it needs these new permissions. I have since started using uMatrix and while it's harder to use at first I have gotten used to using it and now will be uninstalling NoScript. It's a sad day but sometimes you have to move on instead of staying in an abusive relationship. Don't be

Oh yeah, the new interface is terrible, there was no reason to change it, should have left it alone.

The permissions system doesn't allow for "explainations"

Unlike "legacy" add-ons, WebExtensions cannot interact with your filesystem directly. The restored "Export" feature actually goes through the browser.downloads API to let you save your configuration locally.

I don't understand the numerous negative ratings. Noscript had to be redeveloped as a web extension and it is frequently updated. Yes, it's different from the old version, but it still does what it is supposed to do. The developer has done a great job to offer us something *for free* (although I think users should donate). If you can do better, develop your own "Noscript".

What used to a really good plug-in has, since the changes to Firefox, become a right royal pain in the arse. So much so that on some, reputable, sites it's easier to disable NoScript than fight with it.

I'm very seriously thinking of removing it and finding an alternative.
