- por Usuario de Firefox 13538904, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5#### 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)..
- por Usuario de Firefox 13190973, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5old 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.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13537236, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5It 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
- por Usuario de Firefox 13495719, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Well, I must say, I used to love it. But the new version is not so easy to handle anymore. Sad, very sad!
Hope, that it'll be fixed soon.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13535747, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5The 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.
- por Mcmacladdie, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Decent 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.
- por David, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Get Firefox pre-Quantom here (and make sure to disable Firefox autoupdate and background update services):
Find older version of NoScript here:
- por Usuario de Firefox 13522774, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5I 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.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13520787, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Broken 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.
- por Usuario de Firefox 12416561, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5I understand it can be difficult to migrate to a new framework, which is why I am slightly sympathetic. However, the people have spoken. The new UI is garbage, and much of the functionality has been altered in a negative way since the Web Extensions framework updates. I'll go back to 5 stars pending UI and usage fixes! In spite of all this, thank you for the work you've done on the extension.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13516526, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Why did you change a simple UI to this "new" style. You already had the issue with late support for the new firefox, and then you came across with this ugly and popups spamming addon ? Umatrix welcome
- por Usuario de Firefox 13505654, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5There is a bug related to XSS blocking in recent updates:
Opening new tabs from Firfox's blank page is extremely slow and showing a dialog "XSS attack from [...] to ".
- por Usuario de Firefox 10244801, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Most of what is happening now you should blame on Mozilla, though I have to admit there are several things I don't get with NS' new interface.
- por JP, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Was having a lot of trouble with it at first. The noscript button was working for a bit, then stopped working which may have been due to a FF update as far as I could tell on the noscript site? Restarting the browser fixed that particular issue but other things weren't working.
I removed noscript from the add-ons and then went to https://noscript.net/getit and installed from there and it seems to have fixed a majority of the problems as well as cleaned up the UI a bit. I suggest everyone give that a try as well. Just seems there's still bugs to work out and I'm glad to continue to stick with it.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13509796, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5I understood the previous version of NoScript.
I do not understand this version. It is not clear what is going on, or what the icon colours mean. Red versus green seems to be disconnected from permitted and not permitted.
I need documentation. The alternative in the latest version of FireFox is uMatrix, which I have on one machine. It is Very Complicated, but I did find complete documentation for it.
To use NoScript 10.1.1 or later I must have documentation.
- por Usuario de Firefox 13509040, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 53 stars becauze of new Quantum firefox UI, before it it was just perfect, now it is just pure-brainfuck. I will welcome that weed which was smoked while making this nature-fatal-error UI. oh, and TOR still keeps old-fashined perfect UI <3
- por photografx, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5Thank you very much for your effort to make this work with "Quantum (57+)".
But please give us back some oft the ofunctionality and ease of use of the old version.
e.g. temporary allowing scripts
- por Usuario de Firefox 13446037, el hace 4 añosSe valoró con 3 de 5WebExtension is a big change, so former NoScript is dead and NoScript 10 is just a new extension.
Hopefully the developer will probably recover some advanced features of the XUL version, but it will take time we must be patient.
As today, there is no alternative on Firefox 57.
It seems that developer of the excellent ScriipSafe on Chrome Webstore doesn't want to port it on Firefox.
He could have done this for Microsoft Edge since a long time, and nothing has been done.
And surfing without a script controller is I M P O S S I B L E
This is not acceptable, THIS IS A VERY BIG FAULT from Mozilla.
The main issue I could address now to the developer is :
1) no possibility to grant authorization to a full domain (this is a big difference with ScripSafe which lets the choice to the user)
Example : I want to authorize domain and all subdomain of the CDN provider Akamai, This si possible with scripsafe by using the "trust" option instead of "allow", it is not possible here
I want to authorize all Akamai because due to load balancing process the CDN server may change a lot, and so you still need to allow various subdomain. Maybe the developer could implement very quickly a joker system allowing to enter domains like :
In first case we allow every subdomain of akamai.net
In the second case we limit to every subdomain of hd.akamai.net
2) No synchornization option
Ideally, NoScript should store the users data in cloud through the Firefox account as ScripSafe does in the Google Account.
But maybe it is not possible according to the Firefox account policy, so the workaround should be to be able to synchronize data to/from a local path on the computer.
One just have to create this path in a OneDrive or Google Drive synchronized directory...and this should be done.
I have several computer, each computer has several users session, this is just annoying to set up NosSript for each repeating always the same process. And when I set up a new computer, I must restart from the beginning.
With ScripSafe, this is very easy... the extension automatically download and upload to Google Accounts (one must activate such option).
If ScripSafe is ever ported to Firefox with the same functionalities, I drop NoScript
3) Slow GUI
As today, the NoScript GUI is I N C R E D I B L Y slow.
As a comparison ScripSafe is incredibly fast to display the distant hosts list
But this version is a kind of quick done dirty version, let's be patient, this will be probably fixed in the future, but developer must know that the situation is as today not acceptable. I also suspect that NoScript 10 slows down the browser
4) Inefficient filtering mechanism
In the former XUL extension, the filtering engine of NoScript was crappy as it was oftenly forgetting a lot of distant host.
So one needed sometimes to switch to "allow all scripts" to see these hosts, and go back to "forbide all scripts", and so we could set rules for theses invisible hosts.
As compared, ScripSafe was far better as there was not such issues.
Finally.... XUL NoScript is dead and this is a very good thing because the filtering engine of NoScript was outdated and the author didn't want to admit that.
Let's see now if this brand new Web Extension addresses such issues, I can't say at this moment.
