After updating to this version, the browser constantly allocates memory (used about 6,5 GB on my machine after surfing for half an hour) and also increases the CPU usage of Firefox (used constantly 50% of CPU time). Downgrading to v5.0.9 solved the issue. This didn't occur on Windows with NoScript v5.1.1, so i think this is Fedora-specific.

Thanks for the report. This doesn't happen on my machine. Was mozilla-noscript the only package you updated? Can you try reproducing with a clean user profile and only mozilla-noscript package installed (no other Firefox addons)? Which Firefox version? Please open a separate bug report if this is reproducible.

This update has reached 7 days in testing and can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes

My bad, this was caused by a combination of addons (including noscript), but the noscript update itself seems good to me. Though the noscript button on the top right corner disappeared and couln't restore it. I upgraded it like that: Closed Firefox, removed noscript v5.0.9, opened Firefox (so the missing addon is recognized (yes, this step was needed)), closed Firefox, installed noscript v5.1.1 and started Firefox. This is how the noscript button is shown in the toolbar. There is somthing like that mentioned in the releasenotes of v5.1.2: "Fixed toolbar button position changes across upgrades". Shall i open a bug report for that? Shall i open a bug report for that?

At https://noscript.net/ it mentions that there have been reports of the NoScript icon disappearing with version 5.1.12, and a link to a possible fix.

User Icon robatino commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

Sorry, should have said 5.1.2.

User Icon rathann commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

No need for a new bug report, thank you. I'm preparing an update to 5.1.2 as well. I'm glad 5.1.1 doesn't eat all your memory after all.

User Icon rathann commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

I did try 5.1.2 and indeed got the disappearing icon, so I'll hold off until 5.1.3. Thanks for the heads-up @robatino.

I apologize for not testing earlier, but it appears that mozilla-noscript is not usable at all with this version. There is no indication that it is even installed (other than the entry in about:addons), and it appears to be disabled.

After some combination of downgrading, updating, and restarting Firefox, I have the icon back for the moment, and noscript appears functional. Will change my karma to +1 if it stays that way.
