I am trying to use the website Lang-8 (a social networking site for language learning) with tor browser. I can create an account but I cannot log in. Whenever I enter my user name and password, I am redirected back to the welcome page of the site and I do not appear to be logged in.
I do not get any kind of error message, so I don't think that the site is deliberately blocking tor.
I thought that maybe https-everywhere is to blame, but I still cannot log in even if I disable it.
I have tried both Tor Browser version 3.6.6 and 4.0-alpha-3 but I cannot log in to lang-8 with either.
Has anybody had any success using lang-8 with Tor Browser?
It seems that NoScript is causing the problem. If I disable the NoScript extension in Tor Browser (via the Addons menu item in Firefox), I can log in to lang-8. Of course, turning off NoScript is not a viable long-term solution. I tried turning on NoScript again, but adding a regexp matching lang-8 urls to the NoScript XSS protection whitelist, but this didn't help.
I have filed a bug report on trac.torproject.org related to this issue.
