This is generally fixed on the current version (7.14.1), if the problem is detected on a specific page please provide that when reopening the bug (or creating a new one).

off-hand i can say that the previously optional identifier is now mandatory[1] - that would not account for the same error with libreJS 6 but it may be the solution moving forward

i think the form that will satisfy libreJS 7 looks like this:

// @license magnet:?xt=urn:btih:HASH&dn=bsd-3-clause.txt BSD-3-Clause

The reported issue exists on libreJS v0.7.

note that libreJS v0.7 is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only one of them

can you specify which version of libreJS this behavior apllies to?

if this behavior is seen using libreJS v0.6, could you try libreJS v0.7 on a firefox derivative >= v57 to see if the same issue still exists?

on fsf.org, we're using the

> magnet:?xt=urn:btih:c80d50af7d3db9be66a4d0a86db0286e4fd33292&dn=bsd-3-clause.txt

url to mark some piwik code. librejs blocked it in my browser, and blocked it for another user. one of our staff said that the code was not blocked for them.
