    Default Install file when NoScript blocks scripts?

    Hello there,

    I have installed "noscript" on firefox browser. I know that noscript stops scripts from loading except those I allow. I have this question: "does it affect when I install python.exe or any other file using firefox." I hope the question is easy to understand. Please post a answer.

    Thank you in advance.

    NoScript blocks javascript on webbpages.

    What do you mean by "...install python.exe or any other file using firefox." ?

    Actually, I want to ask "when I am downloading a file, like python 3.4.1, to install it, does noscript block any part of the downloadable file?"
    Is it ok to use firefox with noscript enabled to download files like python 3.4.1.
    I hope this makes it clear!
    Thanx

    Yes, of course.
    NoScript has nothing to with any download.
    As already said above "NoScript blocks javascript on webbpages."

    If you donīt understand what NoScript is, then you should perhaps read the documentation...?

    If NoScript blocks a specific web site, a download site, then possibly a download will be hampered if not prevented.

    NoScript doesn not "filter" any downloads.
    But as i already said above: "it blocks javascript on webbsites".

    So if the webbsite requires that javascript runs in order to start the download, and NoScript is active, then the download may never start.
    But after the download starts, NoScript has nothing to do with the file being downloaded.
