Description

I am using Tor 6.5.1 (newest update).
The problem is, that the tor-button plugin disables
other plugins - at least the Session Manager
[ http://sessionmanager.mozdev.org/ ]
This makes web-work hard.
I do not see all extra plugins as a security problem,
I store tor itself, together with the users profile
into a protected container file (and keep history
too).
Would be great, to have plugins to cooperate!
I personally do not know, how to fix this.
Disabling the tor-button plugin makes the
Session Manager usable again.

See: #21396 for the original bug report. 6.5.1 ships with a fix which is off by default, though, as it allows users to be fingerprinted. You need to flip the preference extensions.torbutton.resource_and_chrome_uri_fingerprinting to true.
