Ad Muncher and NoScript

Postby max » Fri May 20, 2011 7:27 am

Is it ok to run both in Firefox please ? I read a while back here that Ad Muncher blocks scripts too so there is no need for NoScript. Is there any disadvantages of running it with Ad Muncher ? To me both programs serve two totally different purposes. This has question has been having me wonder. Sorry I did not know what forum to post this question in so used my best judgment. Feel free to move it.

Indeed, AdMuncher does remove evil scripting but it does NOT stop scripts by default on every page.

So yes noScript is indeed very useful even with AdMuncher.

Been using both together without any problems for years.

I don't know how you managed to get AdMuncher and NoScript to work well together... I couldn't, so I ditched NoScript, even after interceptedby.admuncher.com was included in the allowed section...

I think I have misinterpreted this as well...

AdMuncher does work with NoScript, I still see the ads being blocked and the AdMuncher text as replacement. The only thing that has been nullified is the AdMuncher toolbar!

half of ad muncher's power comes through that toolbar.

removing it nerfs ad muncher...
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

My first popup stopper blocked too much.
My second popup stopper didn't block enough.
Ad Muncher was juuuuust right.

So, you would recommend removing NoScript... since I didn't voluntarily remove AdMuncher's pop-down toolbar, but rather NoScript did...

keep noscript only if you can allow ad muncher's toolbar with it.

I've tried everything under the sun Jeff, NoScript even has "http://interceptedby.admuncher.com" in its whitelist section... but no dice. As good as NoScript is, I've only known about it for about 3 weeks. I think my AdMuncher Pro usage has been going on for well over a year. So I will ditch NoScript.
