Description

TBB customises NoScript to only allow a simple toggle between global allow / global deny of scripts. That's a reasonable attempt to make a hard-to-use tool more comprehensible for many types of users.

Power users however have good reasons to want NoScript's default whitelist-based UI instead. For instance, a user may wish to allow Google JS in order to be able to solve CAPTCHAs and use Google's search engine, but not want to take the risks of JS-dependent vulnerabilities on every other site they visit with TBB.

Currently there doesn't seem to be a way to make that happen in the TBB NoScript UI.

I think this ticket is invalid/worksforme. You can use NoScript's whitelist easily just by changing a few settings in the NoScript options. This is true of the 4.0 and 4.5 series.
