WoT extension incompatible the new Firefox browser v. 80.0

Post by NotBuyingIt » Wed Aug 26, 2020 2:44 pm

The newest version of the WoT add-on (version 20200729.0wot) appears incompatible with the just-released Firefox desktop browser (version 80.0) for MacOS.  The webpage http://www.mywot.com repeatedly reloads, making logins to WoT impossible.  WoT briefly displays a "Network Error" message as I attempt logins. When I disable the WoT add-on, the same webpage does not exhibit the error. 

I have not encountered that error in these WoT forums at https://forum.mywot.com

I have notified WoT support and have invited the support staff to monitor this thread.

My work-around to the bug was to disable the WoT add-on and then to log in. After I quit the Firefox web browser and the restarted it, I could enable the WoT add-on without encountering the error again. My guess is that either the work-around that I performed cleared some incompatible browser settings or that the error was a short-lived network condition which has been corrected.

If anyone else experiences a similar error, please post a follow-up comment. If no follow-ups are posted to this thread, I may either remove it or lock it.

It also happens in Chrome / W10 (but not Brave, Edge, Opera, and Tor). I notified Support, they responded that it was fixed; it isn't.
The error occurs at any: (https://)(www.)mywot.com(/(*))

Chrome is blocking 2 third-party cookies, and a security extension reports an increasing number of banners and data collection attempts blocked as the site flails. This appears to be a script problem rather than reload(), assign(), or replace(); else the security extension's counts would restart at zero.

Update: They've been working on it, steadily since August 27.
Tentatively, it seems fixed for Chrome in Windows 10. Is FF80 in MacOS better? Maybe toss your cookies first.
