Description

I'm not talking about if DRM has been disabled by default but if it is completely removed.

Please provide at least one reference (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ or release notes) for each answered OS.

I prefer the term "digital restriction management" over "digital rights management" but use it in the title to help people get an actual result if they search for it.

Tor Browser for GNU/Linux must be released with DRM completely removed for https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Tor_Browser to remain approved. That is a requirement by the Free Software Directory, or else I'll have to unapproved it until this has been fixed.

We don't ship Tor Browser with any DRM modules nor allow we to download them later on by default. #16285 is the bug you want to look at (it's an ongoing thing we need to deal with).
