Version 3.0 84.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

✓ Implemented a new white-list's scope which we'll name SAYoR (short for Scripts At Your Own Risk) where we'll white-list scripts comming from "userscripts" or add-ons NOT hosted on AMO. Those scripts while had to pass our validation to be whitelisted, we can't guarantee that future versions of them are safe to use as well.

✓ Implemented new notification mechanism by using Firefox's "PopupNotifications" module.

✓ Added options to enable/disable the SAYoR context and Popup Notification system to use, as usual go to the Add-On Manager to change them.

✓ Injections from iframes will be now reported on the parent window and thus the popup warning will be shown correctly centered on the webpage.

✓ Implemented internal storage engine to avoid reporting the same blocked script more than once per second. (All of them will still be logged on the ErrorConsole as they appear, though)

✓ Additional info will be logged on the ErrorConsole when an injection is blocked, such as the request origin or the location if within an iframe. Remember you can open the ErrorConsole at any time by using CTRL+Shift+J

✓ Whitelisted "dev.virtualearth.net" and "ecn.dev.virtualearth.net" globally (not only on stories.facebook.com - Thanks to Thomas B.)

✓ SAYoR'ed http://127.0.0.1:4001/isrunning as used by the cacaoweb add-on (Thanks to Lenard L.)

Version 2.2 67.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

✓ White-listed "dev.virtualearth.net" *while on* "stories.facebook.com" (Thanks to James L.)

✓ White-listed "js.cooliris.com" (Thanks to Evald R.) - Note: We've noticed scripts from this source have the ability to perform certain unsafe actions... However, that's a trusted company providing a privacy policy on how they use your data and thus we're white-listing it.

Version 2.1 67.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

✓ Replaced word "Malicious" by "Suspicious"

✓ Added "www.google.com" to the list of safe domains to inject scripts, since for example their recaptcha service is used on external websites to post comments.
