    NoScript on FF

    I've just added NoScript to my Firefox browser. It's now going through the nause of allowing sites. Not too bad on e.g. bbc.co.uk, but many sites now have other external sites running scripts on their pages. So e.g. windowssecrets has google-analytics and facebook.com, are these OK to allow. It seems to have allowed inetinteractive and googleapis (at least, I don't remember allowing these). So what's the safest way of deciding which 'extras' are safe and which aren't? I'm talking all sites, not just windowssecrets here.

    Thanks as always!

    Oh, and I think I saw twitter as well

    Thanks George, NoScript seems to have a lot more options than when I last used it some years ago! Unfortunately, I don't use a bookmark to open windowssecrets, but LastPass so the option on the second image (which I already have) doesn't seem to work. I'll just to have to work out what's good and what's not and allow them anyway manually. I'll have to look at what options are there!

    If things go pear shaped you can use the reset button.

    Just a puzzle with NoScript. I use LastPass and it normally opened however I last closed it (e.g. I normally have the favourites folder open and all the others closed). But since I added NoScript, all the folders are open when I start the page. Why should this be?

    I'm afraid I can't answer that re LastPass, I did try it, but if I had a choice, I would select toothache.

    I use a Master Password in FF. If i'm checking my bank account (RBS) which is very secure, I use FF portable, it's more secure.
    -
    All my sign-in details and passwords are in Notepad in their own separate file, every one has the same short password when its zipped with 7Zip, then they are all put into a folder which is zipped with a stronger password. It is stored on both my computers & on two separate usb hdd's plus on OneDrive. I also put them onto a dvd rw disk.

    I don't use LastPass, so take this with a grain of salt. I've noticed similar behavior on other sites, so my guess is LastPass may be using scripting to control which folders are open or closed. Use the "Temporarily allow" technique Roderunner illustrated in post #2, then reload the LastPass page. Does it then work as before? If so, the difference is scripting.
