    See that large list of unknown extensions? Those are the embeeded extensions, some are telemetry, others are used to control what settings to enable for X or Y version of Firefox... of course, below, you will find the only extension I ever use... Ublock...
    Those are not what I would call extensions but a part of the program that makes up Firefox.

    This version of UO works with FF55. Choose/install "uBlock0.firefox.xpi".

    I've read the problem with FF55 and UO should be solved by FF56 but for now this extension should work (for most people). Just might want to disable automatic updates on the extension so the problematic UO is not auto-installed though I think he is no longer pushing it due to the issues.

    One can also grab the latest FF55 XUL "legacy" extension (and also for other browsers like Palemoon) here:

    Releases · gorhill/uBlock · GitHub

    Look for "latest release" and install "uBlock0.firefox.xpi"

    That is the XUL non webextension version of UO.

    I just got a new laptop, I installed FF, but Chrome is my default. Too many problems with websites and NoScript is getting to be a joke with all the scripts I have to allow to see things on a site.

    NoScript is not a joke, you just have to learn how to use it. And give yourself the time to learn it. Personally, I think its easy. I started using NoScript in 2009, never had to uninstall it for any reason. Putting the time and taking a no nonsense approach to it when I first started using it was the key for me fo liking it and learning it. After a while, all things started making sense. After a while, all the pieces fell in the right place. And now, its a set and forget addon. I dont have to do much with it. For me personally, NoScript is the reason why I use Firefox. As long as NoScript works in Firefox, I ll use Firefox.

    Here, let me give you an example of what you can do with NoScript if you know what you doing. Look at the picture below. I was watching the Atlanta Braves play the Cubs a little while ago. Because I am using NoScript and using it properly, only 2 domains (the ones with the Forbid next to them) loaded scripts while watching the game. The other 13 scripts that run in that web page were blocked. They dont run, they dont do nothing. The 10 to the left with the Allow next to them are on my blacklist and the 3 to the right are not blacklisted but still blocked by NoScript.

    That particular site is a mean site. If you try visiting it in Firefox, it gets blocked as a bad site. A wild mustang that needs something like NoScript to tame it. NoScript turns the mustang into a pony. Thats what I do with NoScript. Most of the 10 scripts that are on my blacklist are ad servers, trackers, malware, bad stuff. NoScript cleans the internet and makes it usable .

    bo elam i agree until you just mentioned noscript i hadn't really though about it. i've had it configured to my liking for so long i never notice it expect when i go into addons.

    I think for noscript to be used by average user there should be shared settings that you subscribe and download. (like for adblock where you can get the updated list of blocked content). Setting up noscript correctly can be a real pain for many people. I have personally had difficult time blocking and unblocking ten's of addresses to finally be able to have the video load on some pages while blocking the non needed addresses and keeping the needed ones. Once it's done you are fine, but getting it done is a real pain!

    This is how I handle sites. Websites that are in my bookmarks, they are set to the max. I only allow what needs to be allowed in order for me to be able to do whatever I do in the sites. And while in the process of setting them up, in addition to adding the needed scripts to my whitelist and as important, I add most of the remaining scripts to my Untrusted/Blacklist. With the way malware uses javascript as a vehicle to infect, I think, for bookmarked sites, it is worth it taking the time to figure out the needed scripts. Personally, I find most sites are pretty simple to figure out. On the other hand, sites that might run 30 or 40 scripts are not so easy, you might have to trial and error a little bit, but I dont let that intimidate or frustrate me.

    Some time ago a friend at another forum ask me for help to figure out Huffingtonpost. He told me what he wanted, it took me about 10 minutes to figure out the 3 or 4 scripts required not only for the UK version but also for the ones for France and the US. When you first look at the menu, it looks mean and intimidating as that site runs plus 40 scripts, you allow something and more scripts start to appear in the menu cascading, but just by looking at the names you can kind of guess what some of them are and by instinct you know that they are not required to be allowed. Also, the blacklist is useful here, as many that run in Huffington were already in my blacklist, it made things easier. By the time we finished, after a few PM, my friend was beginning to make sense on how to handle NoScript.

    The rest of sites, the ones I ll visit once and that's it or if I am browsing and click a random link, if all I want out of this type of sites is read content and nothing else, usually you dont have to allow anything but if there is a video or something and you need to allow an script, I usually just click to Temporarily allow all this page. At times like this when we click to temporarily allow, the blacklist becomes useful as blacklisted scripts don't run when we temporarily allow a page. This makes it a good reason to build a large list of untrusted sites. In my personal case, my whitelist is very small but my blacklist is huge.
