Firefox 3.6.6 = 0 failures with NoScript and it can't run the tests ;D

Allow, pop-ups, noscript and requestpolicy for the site:
Firefox 3.6.6 = 14 failures, but I really have to jump through a lot of hoops allowing lots of XSS, which I would normally never do on a strange site.

Leave requestpolicy in place and no permissions allowed - Failed checks: = 441
Now that shows just how crazy the test it as if the test can't run XSS then your security is effectively 100%, yet because it can't run the tests it records a fail on everything ;D

This is where these test fall down.

Hi forum users,

We tend to forget, that is why. The failed security issues aren't that particular that it should worry me,
