Up until now i was blocking JS trough Ublock.
and unblocked when ever i thought it was needed.
mainly: when I am going to a website that rely on JS to function and its usage is important enough for me to allow JS to operate.
but after sometime of using i started to think:
because No script allows to block to script from different domain that are working on the same site. can i use it to block JS only to specific domains. in order to allow the website to function while still being protected from fingerprinting?
also: how safe it is to tweak the settings of noScripts when using Mullvad Browser or TOR?
If the website is still broken then you have the opportunity to start allowing individual domains like you do with noscript. After that you can simply click the padlock icon to store your settings so the next time you visit the website you don’t have to do it all over again.
The Hated One has made two excellent video tutorials on how to use Ublock Origin and noscript. They are a bit old but all the basic principles still apply.
If you use noscript in the way I described everything with be blocked by default until you explicitly set a domain to temp trusted. However, keeping Ublock Origin in the background in simple mode trying to block things based only on its blocklists shouldn’t cause any harm.
Either way, my recommendation is to just keep it simple. Watch the two videos I posted above, decide if you want to go with the noscript or Ublock Origin router and stick to one. Personally I just stick to Ublock Origin in advanced mode but I do understand it can be a bit overwhelming at first.
On simple mode it’s possible that Ublock Origin will still block some things missed by noscript. And unlike the regular Tor browser Ublock Origin comes installed by default. So, it’s not like you are risking increasing the uniqueness of your fingerprint. I’d say just leave it as is unless you start notice it interfering somehow with noscript.
