#27732 new defect

New Identity does not reset NoScript's Temporarily Trusted settings

Reported by: Yael Owned by: tbb-team
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: Applications/Tor Browser Version:
Severity: Major Keywords: tbb-newnym, tbb-8.0-issues, tbb-regression, tbb-8.0.1-can, noscript

Reviewer: Sponsor:


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set any random website to Temporarily Trusted
  2. Hit New Identity
  3. Go back to the website later on, the temporarily permission to execute JavaScript is still preserved.

This can be solved by closing and re-opening Tor Browser, however, from my understanding New Identity is supposed to handle that?

In #9486 we started to use NoScript functionality to get rid of temporary permissions during New Identity. We need to adapt that mechanism to cope with the new NoScript reality.

(And we might want to clean up torbutton.js while we are at it: there is no need for code related to the XPCOM version of NoScript anymore)
