I've just installed NoScript, and it's now blocking everything (as it should), so when I open YouTube, for example, I cannot watch videos. An alert bar appears at the bottom of the screen: Scripts currently forbidden | <SCRIPT>: 15 | <OBJECT>: 0 And there's an Options button. Clicking the button does nothing. Clicking the NoScript icon in the information bar does nothing. Could some other Firefox extension be interfering? (I have a ridiculous number, some of which I should probably get rid of.)

The options button isn't where you white/blacklist scripts.

For this it says on the main button menu:

You click on the bottom buttons there, not the options button.

For an easier option, I would use Ghostery which instead of blocking everything blocks the trackers and other "bugs", along with WOT, which blocks sites known to have malware.

Yeah, clicking there got me nowhere either. Nothing happened. I'll try disabling other addons and see if that helps. – TRiG Dec 7 '10 at 22:08
