  1. Start Tor Browser in High, Medium-High, or Medium-Low security modes
  2. Load a YouTube video and wait until it appears to fail
  3. Click on it to activate the video
  4. The page reloads, requiring the user to repeat steps 1-3 indefinitely

NOT A BUG: just youtube behaviour.
Not in High mode ('cause js off).
NoScript asks:
Temporarily allow mediasource:
(video/ogg <VIDEO> / Y / N
If Y, it reloads the page, but digits in address have changed, 'cause of it. So no video again.
It is NoScript usability.
