I tried using two services with JS-based crypto in Tor Browser 7.0, and they are suddenly VERY slow - they work, but only after a long delay, much longer than before.


Or logging into ProtonMail: or

I am using 64 bit Fedora 24 with the GNOME Wayland desktop.

What security slider level are you on?

gk: I was on medium but am now on low with NoScript enabled and set to only allow scripts over HTTPS, to mimic the convenience of medium. This has resolved the issue, but I am uncomfortable with using Tor Browser in this unique configuration.
