Description

gk wrote:

One observation I had today while testing a Windows sv-SE bundle: it seems that NoScript is somehow not properly working as well? At least adjusting the security slider does not seem to work and I can't click on the NoScript icon. However, that might be worth a different bug as I have this issue with an en-US bundle, too. But on my Linux box it is working as expected.

I can see clicking the NoScript button shows no doorhanger in our en-US bundle on Windows. I removed torbutton and the problem persists. Then I bisected noscript versions by installing different XPIs and I found:

  • dropdown fails: 10.1.5.8rc2 and later
  • dropdown appears: 10.1.5.8rc1 and earlier

We can diff these versions to figure out what changed. Might also be worth installing on Firefox 60ESR.

I just found if I disable Tor Launcher, then the NoScript dropdown starts working again. (I ran a Tor instance by running another version of Tor Browser in the background.) If I enable Tor Launcher and disable Torbutton, then NoScript remains broken.

I'm not sure if it's the same issue, or a different one for which we should open a new ticket.

Sorry for the long silence but the issue is still present in 10.1.8.8. Let me know if there are useful steps for debugging which I could do.
