TBB 3.5 hangs under OS X on certain sites (possibly a JavaScript problem)

With the default settings, Tor Browser Bundle for Mac 3.5 hangs under OS X on certain sites (e.g., The hang occurs after page load. Waiting does not help; the app does not recover after one minute of waiting, so I have to kill the Tor Browser process.

When I turn off JavaScript using the NoScript extension, the app does not hang. When the NoScript extension is disabled, it still hangs. So, the problem seems to be related to JavaScript executing on the page.

The same problem occurs on other sites.
