As a software developer, I've seen enough applications with legacy support to know that they will eventually turn to s***, because of that legacy support. It takes a lot of effort to keep legacy support up.

This is what I have in mind as well. Too many old ties holding it back and great effort is wasted to make little improvement there is.

On a brighter side, we're only a week into the new build and interested creators are likely still investigating the new parameters for possibilities. Should it unfortunately continue to lack behind with popular and useful addons in a few months , well I guess it's finally the time to say goodbye to FF.

While we're at it, how is Opera these days? It's been fighting with Safari for that no. 3 place for years.

NoScript 10 just dropped for Quantum so now we have NoScript back. Did I mention it's a hot mess? UI is a nightmare and totally non-intuitive. Anyone waiting for NoScript, keep waiting. It's going to take a while to get this mess straight. Why the interface needed changed seems to be the big question. I thought uMatrix had a convoluted interface compared to NoScript, but this makes uMatrix look easy.


Yeah, I noticed yesterday NoScript was back. I was curious, so I opened it to check it out.

Wow, yeah, that user interface is downright hideous. The funny part is, NoScript was unavailable long enough for me to try an alternative (uMatrix) and get used to it.

I'm now comfortable using uMatrix, and enjoy the extra options it has, so just uninstalled NoScript, and will likely never bother checking it again unless something screwy happens that makes uMatrix horrible.

If the developer of NoScript had simply updated it for compatibility, without the godawful change to the layout, and sooner, I would probably still be using it.

i assume you like your RAM well done too right?


I just checked, and Firefox on my machine is using 399.6mb of RAM right now. Not sure what's going on with your machine, but it's not happening on mine.

Then again, I only have one tab open, and only have Firefox open when I'm using it, which is usually only a few hours tops, so that's likely a factor as well.

I need to reinstall uMatrix and give it another go. My problem with it was that control is so granular in it that a lot of websites I use were always broken and I would spend a good 5 minutes flipping switches just to get them functional again. Not saying that's a bad thing, but sometimes I just don't have the time for the hassle. Shopping sites were a big issue for me. They load so many 3rd party sites and scripts that I was constantly flipping switches just trying to make it through checkout. I might have to keep a separate profile free of everything but an adblocker just for making purchases easier.

Is it possible in uMatrix to set a domain's scripts/objects/etc to always be allowed, regardless of the context? For example, if I want youtube/google/facebook/etc scripts to be allowed on all websites without having to white list them on every website? Not being able to do that is my main problem with this extension.

Last night my no-script was allowing ads through. I checked the interface and certain ad scripts were “green” and unlocked automatically. I tried blocking them and nothing happened. I don’t know if it’s a glitch or if no-script took a payout like those ad blockers.

Oh yeah, I totally understand that, and it definitely can be a little time consuming when a site has a ton of scripts to sift through. I just got used to doing it with NoScript, so I've gotten a lot faster at doing it.

I still haven't read entirely through the wiki, so I'm not sure if that's possible, and if so, how to go about doing it.

If I find out, I'll let you know, and if anyone else happens to know already, I'd like to know as well, that would be very useful.
