#7178 new enhancement

NoScript (2.5.7) "reset" button does not use TBB defaults

Description

NoScript (2.5.7) "reset" in TBB (one result)

Debian/Wheezy (updated)
TBB 2.2.39-3 x86_64

TBB default install has NoScript "General" tab "Scripts Globally Allowed" (dangerous) ON and "Appearance" tab "Allow Scripts Globally" (dangerous) ON ... yet a RESET of the add-on sets the first to OFF and the second to ON. Is this normal?

NoScript
Needs to be updated.
NoScript is now installed by default.
Has been discussed.
 https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-talk/2012-May/024227.html
My conclusion: Disabling it entirely is ok. Disabling on a per domain base is bad for anonymity.

Reinventing the wheel here?

This would be fairly straightforward to solve if the NoScript codebase were commented. As it stands, hunting down the particular option causing this issue is quite tricky.
