Some people don't want or don't need to access non onion sites when they use the tor browser. Hidden services are able to include or redirect to normal internet content leading to unneeded usage of exit nodes.
There should be a button to block all non hidden service taffic

I recommend closing this as won't fix for TB. People who *really* need this could hack a controller to do it.

So, "Block all HTTP requests" in HTTPSE is ok, but "Block not .onion requests from .onion sites" for better security of new users is not?

#18693 tracks the progress of adding a SOCKSPort option to do exactly this.
