Reintroduce noscript-wrapped redirects blocking

This issue has been tracked since 2022-02-17.

Some websites intentionally disrupt workflows of users without JS.
For example vk.com redirects any user without JS to the page advertising installation of a "modern browser", promoting the own fork of Chromium first of all.

I remember that in XUL/XPCOM-based versions of NoScript there was a feature to disallow redirects wrapped into noscript tags.

Yes, this feature existed in Classic.
At this moment you can partially make up for it either by disabling the noscript capability (for DEFAULT or CUSTOMizing the site) or by having Firefox to ask for confirmation for meta refresh (accessibility.blockautorefresh about:config preference set to false).

Yeah, I currently have to resort on this. The sites doing such redirects usually don't use <noscript> tags for anything useful for such users. The problem with that is that I cannot return to the page I had been redirected from by just using back feature, I return to the page before that one and it is very inconvenient.

Very annoying for sites that do this. Is there a userscript I can use to prevent <noscript> from being used for specific websites in Chromium? Using ungoogled-chromium and Violentmonkey.
