how do I re enable blocking Javascript ( my security is already set too safest )

  • Here's an easy test. Set your browser to "safest" and go to: whatismybrowser.com/detect/is-javascript-enabled. It is says "yes" they we can troubleshoot further. If it says "no" then it is blocking javascript correctly. If you are still concerned, uninstall Tor Browser and reinstall. – JSEvans Oct 30 '19 at 18:44

Strange to see this problem, because the "safest" security level is supposed to block Javascript with the help of NoScript.

Anyway, you can do an additional JS block by visiting about:config (enter this in the URL bar or copy&paste about:config?filter=javascript.enabled). Accept the warning and proceed with caution. Then, start searching for 'javascript' and set javascript.enabled to false.

Here's a screenshot of what it looks like (The blue line is that what we're changing):
