    Default NoScript (Firefox extension) Forum users might wish to hold off updating to 2.9.0.5

    The 2.9.0.5 update to NoScript introduced some changes to the anti-xss cross site scripting protection.

    This has resulting in the "redirection shuffle" that forums.opensuse.org performs at log-in as being flagged as "suspicious" by NoScript.

    My attempts at creating an exception rule for NoScript have so far failed... I'm just not "geeky" enough I guess.

    In the mean time, it is possible to choose a "load it even if it looks dangerous " (or something like that) from the menu button at right.

    I'm still at 2.9.0.2 with noscript. It updates too often for me to bother trying to keep up.

    Recently, I have been using "konqueror" for the forum.

    Issue fixed with the upcoming 2.9.0.6 release of NoScript.

    Release candidate is here if anyone wants it:

    https://secure.informaction.com/down...2.9.0.6rc1.xpi

    I'm currently using that release with no apparent problems...

    Thanks. I'll wait for that one before I update my older version.

    Just saw your reply to gogalthorp https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-with-Fire-Fox (you must type faster than me...)

    which reminded me...

    The 2.9.0.6 version is up at AMO now... from posts on the NoScript forum it seems a *lot* of sites were flagging false positives.
