Giorgio: can you please look into that and prepare a NoScript update with a fix? Thanks.

If I uncheck the "Turn cross-site POST requests into data-less GET requests"-option no freezing happens for me.

Hm. Works today. It seems folks from the ad industry "fixed" that on their side. Having the XSS filter being so fragile makes me a bit nervous but there is no progress we can make with this ticket. WORKSFORME.
