    I was (un)pleasantly surprised to see th whitelist in Noscript add on for Mozilla in the latest version. This auto allows googleapis and googlesyndication and a few others that I wont like to have. If you have noticed this, is this a new addition, as earlier version always prevented googleapis by default. Is there any thread on Wilders on this or Noscript configs. Kindly point me there.

    Thanks

    I don't see any of those in my white list and not after any update. I don't think those are by there by default.

    Just remove them then.. Many sites that uses Google services will break though.

    Me too :thumbd:

    I delete ALL of them :D and manually allow/store only the ones i need/want.

    I was asked to post my screenies of my securer etc settings fairly recently in a thread. I posted screenies of Every tab etc. I just tried to find it for you, but couldn't ? If you do a search for it and find it, let me know ;)

    I find a HOSTS file is the best way of eliminating things such as Google tracking. :)

    I just did a reset of NoScripts settings. I then exported the white list. Here is what I got. (Does not include the items that are not removable).

    NoScript's explanation is located in their FAQ. What websites are in the default whitelist and why?

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I am very busy with financial matters and hence could not reply earlier. I had just taken a screen shot today, but realized that Chrisretusn has already posted it. Thats exactly what I wanted to ask. The explanation from the developer is logical from his point of view, but uncomfortable for me. Tomorrow he can add a few more based on his new relationships with others. Good that I found this on time.

    Finally Thanks to CloneRanger and Globalforce for pointing me to the relevant excellent thread on configuration.
