How can I get it to "allow scripts for trusted domains"?

Any other config tips appreciated.

I'm not sure I'm using it right. I constantly find myself poking the red S to "temporarily allow all this page" when I want to view something it's blocking. I don't make it a practice to whitelist individual sites.

As an aside---with the default config on No Script, the only tests I fail are 12 and 22. Not sure why I pass 7 and 8 and you don't.

Hey thanks for that link. Mine passed all but a couple.

Which begs the question of how the website was displayed.

Most of the ".net" URLs, in these recent threads did not exist on the day that the post was made:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1129758

https://community.norton.com/en/foru...ox-despite-nis

Some crawler seems to have harvested the URLs and registered some of the domains within a day or two.
That is a good question. I don't have to do anything either, the game can just be sitting there and a new page will load up like the one I posted. There is also another little pop up window that opens with something about java script in it which I didn't catch in this pic. Here it is (I thought I had deleted it, but it was still in my junk folder).

Well you have to define trusted domains on a site by site basis. Once trusted they're added to the whitelist but can also be removed from it. However if you don't wan't to whitelist sites then that's no use.

I meant that I don't pass 7 & 8 with Noscript disabled.

Check out the user.js that can be downloaded here:

A comprehensive list of Firefox privacy and security settings - gHacks Tech News

You can inspect the contents using your text editor and choose what to apply.

Then there's ConfigFox (works with non default profiles/ firefox variants)

Note changes made to profile via user.js will be written to prefs.js unless configured not to via ConfigFox > View > Preferences.

Obviously user.js and prefs.js need to be backed up before messing about or ideally create a full profile backup.

That same JS file is mentioned in one of the threads that I linked to.
I would not be too happy that this website can be displayed. The website could do damage to your computer - even if you don't click on any links.

Google Logging Popup on Firefox 5.0
Is anyone else having this problem? When I use the Google search bar (not google.com) Firefox is informing me that it blocked a "logging popup" I googled (ironically....), and apparently it's a common issue across a few browsers atm,... but I guess I'm a little paranoid.

Firefox 4 question
Is there an addon or an edit for the about:config thing that makes it so pop ups appear as tabs. Like I watch a lot of videos, and sometimes a 2nd window pops up that appears with the video like so.

Firefox question
right now my homepages in FF are a few blogs, would it be possible to have each blog only open if there is a new post on it? it would make it faster and easier to see only the blogs with new posts on them, anyone know if this is possible? or some kind of similar alternative?
