NoScript is a powerful extension, but it is a pain in the arse to use until you know how it works and start setting permissions for your most commonly used websites so that the features of the website that you want to use actually work.
With all the attention placed on "social media" these days the number outside domains that many websites connect to has expanded from [like] 3 or 4 per webpage 5 or 6 years ago, to sometimes over 25 different websites these days - and NoScript will block them all until you allow them piece-mail, or globally each time you visit a website.
You need to take the time to learn how to use NoScript -- or uninstall it if you don't want to put the time in to learn how it works and the time to "allow" for every website that you visit. IMO, it's not an extension for 'rookie' users - really only for medium or advanced level users who understand how it works and want to put in the time for the greatest protection as offered by NoScript.
I have used NoScript since it first came out and in recent years I have been using NoScript with the "whitelist" set in NoScript Options to Scripts Globally Allowed (dangerous) in the Profile that I use for everyday surfing. Not recommended by the developers of NoScript.
If you use extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) that can block content (e.g. Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flash Block, Ghostery) then make sure that such extensions aren't blocking content.
