In TOR manual we have the following:

Safer (...) JavaScript is disabled on all non-HTTPS sites; some fonts and math symbols are disabled; audio and video (HTML5 media) are click-to-play.

I was wondering whether this apply to .onion HTTP sites, since most of them are not HTTPS. Logic would dictate that when .onion site is HTTP "safer" security setting would block JavaScript on such site.

Am I right? Or above just applies to clearnet sites?


  • I think it disables on all sites, because I came across some illegal .onion sites saying that it's better to disable javascript because "you're gonna sent to jail". Sep 30, 2022 at 23:39
