beware, this addon makes permanent changes to your browser's behavior, even if you uninstall it!
if you change some of the settings, the addon doesn't offer any way to go back to the defaults. the changes are made to hidden preferences in your about:config, and those changes stay permanently, even if you uninstall the addon. there is no list anywhere of which preferences are changed, making it very difficult to manually set things back to the way they were, using about:config.
if you install this addon, make sure you write down all the settings before you change any of them, because there's no going back!!
It works perfectly in FF3.6 (and older) on Windows (XP). However, in FF7 on Linux (Lubuntu 11.10) it fails to block the scripts from hiding the Bookmarks Toolbar, i.e. unchecking the "Hide the bookmarks toolbar" has no effect. This probably has something to do with the new toolbar scheme that FF introduced in newer versions.
although the policy management tab is a little buggy in firefox 3.6.17 (deleting and editing of permissions almost impossible) the extension controle de scripts seems to be quite useful. i will use it to further improve my privacy and security.
Advanced Settings (policies or whatever they're called in english version of this addon) seem to bebuggy in FF5. New policies are not saved. Can anyone confirm this?
Today the use of this add on is limited, since with NoScript, I block all script from certain domain. But in the future, I may become necessary to allow certain script-functionality from a domain, whil still blocking functionality from that same domain.
When this day will have arrived,I guess, this add on would be the thing to look at.
Great addon to prevent annoying changes to the browser behaviour/appearance. I didn't expect more from this addon.
SP didn't work for me, but at the moment i don't need these. Changes of the max. script time won't be saved, i had to alter this value via about:config.
It's a great idea in concept, but the extension doesn't work too well (the Security Policies manager in particular).
Managing the default policy works, but anything beyond that is broken.
It's a great tool, and it does work. One little advice, though: blocking 'window.location' in the advanced tab can mess up some of your Greasemonkey scripts.
I've had this add-on forever but I really want to replace it with something else. There is basically no information on how to use this (the info that is there is laughable) and either the advanced policy manager doesn't work or is simply too arcane to figure out. I can't even tell when I'm on a website whether the policy manager is using the right policy, and if it is then my attempt to block window.open for a specific policy simply isn't working. There's zero feedback on what the add-on is doing, so there's no way to know if it's even doing anything at all; the one thing I'm sure it is not doing is its job. Either the extremely crappy UI needs to be rewritten or somebody needs to document it properly. (By the way, how about an option to block pop-ups that don't go to the same domain? That would stop like 99% of ads. There's no way I'm the first person to have thought of that.)
Could you update this extension for firefox 3.6?
UPDATE: the advanced policy manager is a pain. it would be a HUGE plus if one could simply create a new policy for a website(s), then change the settings in the UI and apply the new settings to the policy rather than having to research property/method stuff that many users could care less about (me).
nice tool, simple, easy to use.
as for those referencing NoScript, yes, it does work with NoScript and no, this is NOT a replacement for NoScript.
A great idea. I installed it to try and stop alert boxes on exiting pages commonly used by popups but either it doesn't support it or I couldn't figure out how to use it. I found noscripts does it so I decided to switch. However even after uninstalling lightboxes don't seem to work. I'm not sure if it's this extension specifically though.
It doesn't work with NoScript.
Just a little warning: If you uncheck "change images" under preferences>permissions, the previews / thumbnails on youtube.com might stop working properly. Read more: http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=1&comments_parentId=82980
Excellent. Finally get rid of those stupid pages that resize my window.
Excellent add-on for my favourite browser.
the power of CAPS for everyone!

With the latest version of this extension, I get the Gray bar error under the status bar with Firefox 126.96.36.199. It also causes a problem with opening the Addons window in Firefox.
"Hide the titlebar" , "Hide the minimize button" , "Hide the close button",
Move and/or have the option to hide the button on the toolbar. It is very much out of place right now.
I recommend the status bar icon theme, but since the menu only has one item, not even that is required.
If you mean SeaMonkey toolbar button, you can hide it on preferences window:
1. Open Preferences window;
2. Click on Navigator panel;
3. Uncheck Script Manager on Navigation Toolbar groupbox.
