I installed xul-ext-noscript 2.6.8.19-1~deb7u2 from
wheezy-proposed-updates, and it works OK.

However, I see the patch now has the following line:

Origin: backport, 
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-mozext/noscript.git/diff/components/noscriptService.js?h=upstream/2.6.8.42&h=upstream/2.6.8.42_rc1

That URL is a bit misleading because the diff is neither from
upstream/2.6.8.42 to upstream/2.6.8.42_rc1 nor vice versa;
it's instead from the parent commit (upstream/2.6.8.41) to
upstream/2.6.8.42_rc1.  When the query string of the URL contains
multiple "h" fields, cgit uses only the last one:

http://git.zx2c4.com/cgit/tree/cgit.c?h=v0.11.2#n300

A shorter URL would thus work just as well:

Origin: backport, 
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-mozext/noscript.git/diff/components/noscriptService.js?h=upstream/2.6.8.42_rc1

Or if you wanted to specify the older version explicitly,
you'd use "id2":

Origin: backport, 
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-mozext/noscript.git/diff/components/noscriptService.js?h=upstream/2.6.8.42_rc1&id2=upstream/2.6.8.41

It's totally not worth making a new upload but I wanted to
mention it in case more backports are needed later.
