Why am I unable to right click on websites I frequently use to allow scripts so the page will come up?

I am no longer able to right click on a website to allow scripts so when the site comes up, it won't open. With the new Mozilla tab in the top right menu, the site will show TRUSTED but won't open.

Okay, you use the NoScript extension. Yes, its interface totally changed.

When you click a server to change it from untrusted to trusted, you might have to also do a manual reload of the page (circling green arrows icon on the top of the NoScript panel) to actually enable the scripts. The old version used to reload automatically, but in my limited testing of the new NoScript, I don't think it's automatic.

I'm not sure I understand the connection between right-clicking and allowing scripts to run. Could you explain this in more detail? For example, where do you usually right-click, and why is it necessary to allow scripts? When the site doesn't come up, are you getting a blank page, or an error message? If it's an error you could copy/paste into a reply, that might help give us some more context. Thanks.

Please understand that I am not very computer savvy and simply use the basics on my PC.

I am using Windows 7 OS. When I could use the right click feature on Mozilla, I used it to allow websites that I trusted and have used before. I would right click anywhere on the page, which brought up the NO SCRIPTS window and then navigate the site. Now, however, the site comes up but will not allow me to open any windows within the site. When I use the new Mozilla feature at the top right menu, it says TRUSTED for the site but I am still unable to go anywhere on the site to open any new windows. Does this help?
