Noscript update

Post by joseph999 » 2017-03-09, 19:47

Is there some reason why my NoScript add-on install is not getting updated under PM?

I noticed I had a release from back on August 2016, so manually updated to 2.9.5.3 a couple of days ago. Now I am not seeing the auto-update to 5.0.x.

I would say because of compatibility. Pale Moon use Firefox 27.9 as useragent for AMO, so if a addon say the min-gecko is higher then 27.9 you doesnt get a update.

Well, I opened a thread on NS forums for this problem. If I am having a problem with NS not updating under PM, then I have to assume that many others are also.

The thread is at:

Can you or someone tell them if they have to add something to their code so that PM will allow automatic NS updates again?

Thanks.

... be careful what you ask for, NoScript 2.9.5.3, page not automatically reloading after allowing script ?, so do you have the same problem?

Running 2.9.5.3 on Win10 Pro with the 32bit PM. Auto reloading works for me.

But my issue is why PM did not auto update the various NS releases since last August, not whether pages reload after a script allow.

NoScript's minVersion on AMO is higher than 27.9. Thus, it will not auto update for us. Additionally, note that version 5.0 is not fully compatible with us anyway due to including WebExtension code.

If the developer wants to produce a version specific for Pale Moon, the following can be used with regards to where such a version can be hosted (so we can get updates properly):
