Update #2

After Disabling the "HTTPS Everywhere" Extension I was unable to remove it.

So I deleted the TOR folder and downloaded the latest version (11) and reinstalled it to a new location.

Once again NoScript would not work and once again the HTTPS Everywhere extension is installed and I cannot remove it. Disabling it does once more cause NoScript to start working normally again.

Quesion #1 Why is the "HTTPS Everywhere" extension automatically installed?

Question #2 Does enabling "HTTPS-Only Mode" in the security settings work without the extension enabled?

Update #1: After digging through the security settings I changed a few
things and the issue is gone.

#1 Settings > Privacy and Security > HTTPS-Only Mode.

I've never seen this before and it was set to "Don't Enable". I've
always used the "HTTPS Everywhere" extension with TOR.

I changed the setting to "Enable in all windows" and then Disabled the Extension and restarted the browser. 

NoScript is functioning normal now.


Original Post:

Title says it. I just installed the V11 update to the TOR browser and
NoScript is no longer functioning as in it no longer blocks any

After installing I had the same "missing bookmarks" bug I had when I
updated my regular Firefox ESR.

I followed the same steps I did for Firefox, deleting the
"favicons.sqlite" and "places.sqlite" files in my profile folder then
rebooting my PC.

That restored my bookmarks and then I noticed noscript was no longer
working in TOR. (It is still working in Firefox ESR)

  • Its not working for me either, neither is ublock origin after the recent update (in fact it would not even display correctly, looked hollowed out, and menu items missing). Looks like this release was botched completely

  • Even after downloading and installing a fresh copy of tor, noscript is broken.

  • Even the latest alphas noscript's are broken, putting the entire network at huge risk. the options menu won't even open. this looks intentional
