I want to recommend researching and implementing additional protections for browsing hidden service websites.

Some ideas:

  • #9623: Don't send referers from hidden addresses.
  • Javascript disabled by default for hiddden services, whether it is enabled for public websites.
  • This is all I can think of for now

We fixed #9623 but I think not enabling JavaScript by default for onion services is not the right way to go. Users have security settings for that now.
