Description

I think NoScript is not a fitting addition to the Tor Browser, especially as it is gets known for shady practice and the way it is used (basically disabled) it won't help that much anyway.

See following:

Is there any guarantee that it won't inject malicious ads in the Tor browsing experience? Does the Tor browser have its own fork maybe?

Changing Component to the proper value, so that TBB team will see us. (So start counting when they close this as invalid ;)

sounds nice! :)

I think is a hard work

How about fork implementing its key features in torbutton?

It will also serve to remove some redundancy and anecdotes from tbb ...
