HTTPS Everywhere tries to load a library with an empty name

The NSS.initialize function, called from src/components/ssl-observatory.js with an empty argument, is trying to load a library with an empty name.

This is possibly causing a DLL hijacking vulnerability in Tor Browser (see #12736).

A new release of HTTPS Everywhere has been made, v 5.2.3, which fixes this bug. I've tested on Tor Browser, and it looks to be updating to the latest. Thank you for reporting and for your patch.
