No Script is back up and easier to use than before. It's simple and more user friendly with all the settings.




I have to mess around with this since some of my pages will not load with the current no script. I think they are blocking too many things on the sites.

btw, i didnt' know crunchyroll has so many things on the site




It's been awhile since I've used NoScript, but the idea is you are trusting domains to run scripts. It's things that are running off site that would be the problem generally. That's not always the case, but you get the idea.

But I do think NoScript is more of a hassle than it is actually worth. Being smart about the URL you are accessing is generally a better use of my time.

the settings will be saved after you adjusted it so you will not encounter the same problem the 2nd time visiting the same website. True. it can be a hassle for users who don't know how to use it. Ublock origin should be sufficient for them.

Unfortunately, I prefer Ublock origin to the current iteration of NoScript. The new version has some major issues, even before they broke it with the 10.1.2 update (with that update, when I would click trusted in the dropdown, it would immediately revert to default). The biggest issue is that with the new version you can no longer trust specific subdomains of a domain with the dropdown, you have to access the setup and manually type and add them in. For instance, if you select that you want to allow scripts from www.google.com, it will add ...google.com which allows anything from *.google.com, such as adservice.google.com. This is not something I would ever want to do and it wasn't how NoScript used to work.

I'm using both Ublock origina and No Script. It's true. They still need to update no script. I noticed problems with pages or videos not loading on some of the sites i visited.

I don't see the option to "allow all on this page" anymore.

I noticed (and hated) the UI change, but didn't even realize it was supposed to be some "significantly improved" new version.

Performance-wise, I have seen no difference (not that I've done any kind of before-after analysis), and still prefer Chrome overall.

For the reverting to default issue it is a case of declaring that you trust scripts for https (green padlock) but the site trying to work with http scripts. The solution is to allow that specific item with the red padlock and it will remember.

Scripts run entirely through https will work with the green padlock setting.

That doesn't address your other issues though.

Well this doesn't impact me since I don't use google tracking software. When I found out Firefox had gone Chrome I dropped them like I dropped Opera.
