Description (last modified by intrigeri)

If we make the changes suggested by #23150 and child tickets, we'll need to:

  • decide how many buttons to have
  • where those buttons go
  • what functionalities each button would have
  • what icons we should use for each button
  • what to do about the noscript and onion buttons

Thanks Linda for putting this to your plate! :^) IMHO:

what to do about the noscript and onion buttons

For NoScript: In FF59esr there will be a drop-down menu that lists add-ons (screenshot, you can test it by downloading latest Firefox Nightly), I think it would be OK to have it there along with HTTPS Everywhere if and only if the suggestion in ticket:22985#comment:3 is implemented. The reason is that if it's hidden there then enabling videos with Medium security settings would require 3 clicks (first on that menu, then on the NoScript icon, then "Temporarily allow *@​https://www.youtube.com"), whereas with the suggestion in ticket:22985#comment:3 it would be only one click.

See #23359 for a bug we should take into account when working on this ticket. (Note that we don't do anything on our side right now that makes the HTTPS-Everywhere button visible. Thus, if we decide we don't want it on our toolbar then we need to do something to make that happen)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

We wrote a proposal that deals with reordering the toolbar (https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-browser-spec.git/tree/proposals/101-security-controls-redesign.txt) and plan to do related work in #25658. Closing this ticket as the decisions got made.
