Hi. I have firefox 57 on my system. As you know many add-on have incompatibility with firefox & developers are hardly working to fix this issue.

One of most important add-on is NoScript.

Yesterday I recognized - on official site of developer - that new version for firefox 57 is ready to download & installation. But I recognized also that this new version is ONLY AVAILABLE from their site but NOT from official firefox add-on site ! When I search add-on official site of firefox, then new version for firefox 57 NEVER appearing to me !!

Moreover, OLD NoScript that still installed on my firefox 57 but disabled, I have option beside it in my firefox 57 say "Find a replacement". This option lead me to other add-on (BUT DEVELOPED BY SAME DEVELOPER OF NoScript) called Double NoScript !

Moreover, I detect on official add-on - by searching - other add on called: NoScript security suite !

So, now we have the following:

1) NoScript for firefox 57:
https://noscript.net/getit

2) Double NoScript:
https://hackademix.net/2017/11/14/double-noscript/

3) NoScript security suite:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/

Please what I have to select of them ?! What is(are) difference(s) between them ?

Also, please notice that NoScript security suite has same version number as for NoScript for firefox 57+ ! So, are they are same package, one from official NoScript site while 2nd is from official firefox add-on site ?

'that new version for firefox 57 is ready to download & installation. But I recognized also that this new version is ONLY AVAILABLE from their site but NOT from official firefox add-on site !' I suppose its for testing. We are crash test dummies.

I would go with 3) NoScript security suite:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/

Yes, you are correct. Thank you!

"NoScript security suite" is promising. Management of sites now is much easy. But there are certain features still not imported from old version to new version, like "temporal enabling of script for a site". They will be imported in future. I feel that this add-on will be great after few months ......

I left the old noscript installed, and it updated yesterday to run on ff57. The ui is different, but all the permissions are saved and I didn't have to wonder which one to use.

I simply don't upgrade to 57 until this is ironed out.
Mozilla should've made 56 an ESR release.
