Description

For easy access to the Tor network, ProtonMail and the Tor Project recommend using the Tor Browser.

Funny thing is latest TBB ships with "asmjs = false".
Therefore Protonmail can't load on TBB.

Fore details, read comment of protonmail.com/blog/protonmail-tor-censorship/

See #19417 for some some background. FWIW setting javascript.options.asmjs to true should solve the problem for you although doing so might not be advisable from a fingerprintability/linkability perspective.

I can load protonmail and use it just fine with javascript.options.asmjs set to false.

See #22500 for a related issue. But it seems asm.js is not necessary here?
