Firefox ignores requests to open a webpage

This issue has been tracked since 2022-04-18.

Sometimes when I enter an URL in the address bar, Firefox completely ignores this and refuses to open the webpage (the URL of the previous loaded webpage reappears in the address bar and nothing happens). There is no problem with my internet connection because I can open the webpage in a new tab (i.e. when there is a link to that webpage on another webpage I can right click on it and open the webpage in a new tab).

This only happens when the NoScript extension is active.

I have no idea if this is relevant but I have many, many tabs open on a lot of windows.

I have the same issue with my searxng instance set as a default search engine. When noscript is enabled, and I have an opened webpage, typing a search query in the url bar (which would normally leave the current page and go to my searxng instance to show me the results) just does nothing. It stays on whatever page is opened. This does not happens when I search from a privileged page. Only from an actual webpage.

Could you try removing any "Always block" line from NoScript Options>Advanced>Sanitize cross-site suspicious requests?

I tried that already (and just retried for good conscience) but that does not fix the problem

I mean I tried to uncheck Sanitize cross-site suspicious requests but I don't see 'Always block' anywhere

Should it happen again, could you please click about:debugging>This Firefox>NoScript>[Inspect] and check the Console tab for error messages related to the URL you can't open? Thanks.

I just tried that, and reproduced the issue while the console was open but I don't see anything relevant

I also tried to disable all extensions but noscript to make sure there's no interference, but with just noscript, the problem still happens

Could you please check whether the problem goes away with 11.4.11rc1 from https://noscript.net/getit#devel ?

Thanks!

Sorry, there was a problem with the crypto signature. Please retry now.
