NoScript blocking WebmasterWorld pages after posting
NoScript ABE needs a script - but what?

 10:07 pm on Oct 28, 2011 (gmt 0)

For some time now FF has blocked the refreshed WebmasterWorld page that is delivered after posting to forums. I have to accept the refreshed page through the Allow button; it will then complete the new page download.

I am fairly sure this can be by-passed using code in the ABE User section of NoScript but the sample I tried has made no difference.

Anyone know how to fix this, please?

I'll assume no one else has a problem, then. :)

I mainly use Opera for WebmasterWorld. I just tried it with FF and NoScript and didn't notice this behavior. Looked normal to me.

I use FF plus NoScript for browsing and I do not see this issue either. I do have WebmasterWorld in my WhiteList though too.

Hadn't thought of whitelisting...

... hmm. Didn't make a difference but perhaps I need to re-start FF first. I'll report back later.

Could it be another Add-on?

For a period of time it did that for me... then after I upgraded my FF it quit. What version of FF are you running?

It did it under 3.6 until a few weeks ago. After I added FF Stable to my repository it updated to 7 and still got the same problem. Whitelisting hasn't made a difference.

The message, paraphrased, is "Firefox prevented redirect". I click Allow and it reloads correctly.

If you create a new profile does it give you the same warning?

Haven't tried that - I only run a single profile - but thanks for the tip: I'll check it out.

Looking at an auto-updated page of a router's status, it looks as if this is a function of the header's meta redirect. I began looking at a manual a few days ago but time ran out on me. :(
