Main good news:
  • NoScript already protects users against this Firefox exploit. However, it would be theoretically possible to exploit bug 319004 from the server side (no JavaScript). Hence the new NoScript "Truncate title" option (enabled by default) is a quick and dirty additional protection which will work even on whitelisted sites.
  • Message bar notifications can be hidden or set to go away automatically after 5 seconds (NoScript Options|Appearance)
  • Long awaited bookmarklets support. It allows JS on current page just for the bookmarklet execution lifespan. This technique should be safe enough, because JS execution in web page is strictly mono-threaded. Anyway, if you don't want or don't need it, you can turn on NoScript Options|Advanced|Forbid Bookmarklets.
