No Script causes logs in my router

Drop TCP packet from WAN 216.121.231.237:63778 216.121.231.238:80 Rule: Default deny

I get lots of these when I use FF and open the admin page or log-in to my router.

How and why does NoScripts cause my router to block my ip to my ip?

If I disable noscripts, the errors cease.

Checking my firefox configuration (as found with "about:config"), I see that I have "noscript.ABE.wanIpAsLocal" set to false. I think that's the setting that turns off this check.

I set my internal IP here noscript.ABE.localExtras

I hope thats the right thing to do.
Thanks for putting me on the right track

I guess you will find out soon enough.

I just disabled that check. Since I am not running a web server, that particular ABE check is trying to prevent something that cannot happen anyway. Since your router is not doing loopback on the WAN IP, it looks as if it couldn't happen in your case, either.
