This AddOn is technically my favorite, and the other AddOn that I mentioned ‘uBlock Origin’ is my 2nd favorite. NoScript gives you better tuning capability that uBlock, and I feel it is completely necessary to turn off 50% of the junk that is loading on many WebSites. That is how you improve performance, and that is how you notice when things aren’t working right.
I can’t run these in EVERY browser session, for some things they are too restrictive.
NoScript Security Suite allows me to trust a domain as ‘Trusted’ or ‘Temporary Trusted’. Generally, after you make a new site as Trusted, you need to hit the refresh button, and sometimes, that process takes a few tries. It is amazing to me how much information is revealed by this tool. Many times, it is loading things from a know Advertising Domain, or something that you don’t trust. It gives the ultimate control over what I load and what I don’t. If you ever have a situation where a site isn’t working, on the menu in the Firefox AddOn menu for this tool, in the upper right hand corner there is an option to mark all subdomains as ‘Temporary Trusted’. That allows you to quickly pause this plugin for a bit and ‘Get Things Done’ back in the default turbo mode that is the default way to surf the web. I only use that bypass button about ONCE a week.
NoScript Security Suite by Giorgio Maone
The best security you can get in a web browser! Allow potentially malicious web content to run only from sites you trust. Protect yourself against XSS other web security exploits.
It protects your “trust boundaries” against cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), cross-zone DNS rebinding / CSRF attacks (router hacking), and Clickjacking attempts, thanks to its unique ClearClick technology.
Such a preemptive approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and unknown!) with no loss of functionality where you need it. Experts do agree: Firefox is really safer with NoScript 😉
