I'm using Mozilla Firefox Mobile for Android and I like it :)

I already use uBlock Origin in order to get rid of ads and invasive ads.

However I would like some plugin able to prevent unwanted JavasSript from loading and maybe even take advantages of unsolved or 0-day vulnerabilities present in the browser.

Basically I'm searching for something like NoScript (I wonder why the author still didn't make a port for Mozilla Firefox for Android) but that has an auto-management of the allowed domain based of their trustness.

Something like enable all Google ones except for Google Analytics, disable the ad-related domains and allow some CDN in order to make them to work.

Could you suggest me something?

Sure: I'm using NoScript for that in Firefox on the Desktop. The same addon is, according to AMO, also available for mobile Firefox. As you already mention you're "searching for something like Noscript", this should match perfectly. As of now, it was last updated January 8, 2016 – so it's up-to-date and maintained.

For those not familiar with NoScript:

Allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS and Clickjacking attacks.

By default, NoScript disables JavaScript on all sites except those you're explicitly enabling it. You can enable JS for sites permanently or temporarily (per session).

  • It seems that NoScript is available for a so called Firefox Mobile, I checked but is not the same thing of "Firefox Browser for Android". It's not listed if i try to search the add-on and if I use the direct link the install doesn't work :\ – user3450548 Feb 2 '16 at 23:51
  • Strange. According to Wikipedia, that should be the very same: Firefox for mobile is available for Android devices running Android version 2.3 and above. German Wikipedia even goes a step further saying (raw translation) "Firefox mobile currently is only available for Android." You see me quite confused. Admittedly, I'm not using FF on Android. Maybe someone else has a clue here – or I shall have to remove my answer as not fitting then. – Izzy Feb 2 '16 at 23:57
  • Additionally see this: NoScript :: Versions :: Add-ons für Firefox für Android. I cant get this page for EN, but in German it explicitly states: "Add-ons for Firefox on Android". Wait, here it is in EN: NoScript Security Suite :: Versions :: Add-ons for Firefox for Android. And now? ?-/ – Izzy Feb 2 '16 at 23:59
  • I have no idea but it seems not to work. I have firefox for android on 2 phones pretty new here and i tried to search the android addon, i can't find it :( If i use the direct link it says download but doesn't install. – user3450548 Feb 3 '16 at 0:16

Since you mention already using uBlock Origin ("uBO"), you could enable advanced user mode, block all 3rd-party scripts by default, then create global noop rules for the domains you trust: that would be what I call medium mode in uBO.

You can use the My rules pane in the dashboard to manually create your rules, and even import them from RequestPolicy or NoScript. For example, a rule to trust google.com would be * google.com * noop.

  • I have to try it but I would like something with already a whitelist activable so i have not to do it manually (thing that on a phone is not easy). – user3450548 Feb 3 '16 at 0:19
