Hey guys,

I thought i would bring this to the attention of those concerned in case they already did not know. I am still unable to download any attachments, whether yahoo or gmail, when running tor. The message which appears is

"[JavaScript Application]

Torbutton blocked direct Tor load of plugin content.

Use Save-As instead.

This is a real pain and i was hoping it would be fixed with the update, but alas....

Also, the same message appears sometimes on normal pages, such as when you fill forms, or just loading pages like:

Please try to fix this issue in the next update... its a real pain!!!

This user can't use our bugtracker and seemed to be experiencing some kind of addon conflict. I asked them to try to reproduce it, so far no replies.

Hi, keb!
There are your tickets that 7 years old, yay! Maybe, because of your account was created when this Trac was so young that couldn't send emails with comments to you, today you see update only when ticket is closed. There are no options on user's side, but filing a ticket to Service - Trac admins may help.
Status Property was changed to needs_information, maybe it's enough for Trac to notify you.

Seems to be a relic of the toggle area. Either way this works for me now.
