I was excited that The Tor Browser Bundle was essentially Firefox and that it already cam with several useful extensions. I had put off using it because I didn't want to sacrifice things like NoScript, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger, Ad Block Plus, and a few other extensions.
However, much to my horror, the NoScript extension included with tbb was essentially turned off. I had to compare this to my default Firefox install and reset NoScript to actually be useful and actually block scripts by default.
Is there a reason(s) for NoScript being configured the way it is for tbb? I did a quick search but didn't find explanation(s), though I do find plenty of instructions on how to make NoScript "more secure" by essentially turning it on. I first started with a version 4.x of tbb, though I don't recall the version. I think I've been using tbb for 3 or 4 versions now.
Edit: I found this question: Noscript and latest TBB (v3.6.4) — recommended modifications to default settings?, but there's not much in the way of technical data.
At least part of the reason NoScript acts different is that tbb runs in FIrefox's private mode, so you have to go into NoScript and enable the permanent allow option if you want to permanently allow scripts on certain sites. Those few settings make it harder to use tbb as your daily driver browser IMO.
