Thread: NoScript issue

  1. #1

    Default NoScript issue

    This kind of gets into computer nerdery here, but I use the Firefox Noscript extension to filter out some harmful web tactics. Certain threads on TWT make NoScript unhappy, thinking it's a clickjacking attempt to EBay. Here's a pic:

    Basically it thinks when you click on that image element it is "hiding" another element underneath, which is what you are really clicking on. Looks pretty harmless to me (the element underneath is simply grey) put I'd figure I would pass along to Schlottke. If you have no idea what I'm talking about or need more info let me know. I'm not actually blocking any JavaScript on TWT, which is what most folks use NoScript for.

    Also - I see this less often but every once in awhile I get a small message (think it's a tiny popup window) about "Sorry for leaving ebay - would you take a survery?" but it's pretty rare and I didn't spend enough time figuring out when it happens. Think it's when I go from a thread to the College Wrestling board, but if it comes up again I'll document it better.

    It might be the way your browser is handling the eBay ads, I will check it out.

    If you have any of the "speed up your browsing" plug-ins installed, they click through to links and begin loading them before you actually click.

    Let me know what threads it happens on if it continues to happen again.

    Any update on this? I ran a check on a few different versions of FF with NoScript on them and couldn't recreate the problem

    I'll check it out and see if it comes up. Hopefully I can find a way to recreate and make sure another extension isn't causing the issue...
