Description

http2 requires an encrypted web connection, TLS, https. Onion services with TLS certificate can use HTTP2 but as Onion Services already provide end-to-end encryption by default, http2 should be enabled even without a TLS certificate, this way we could make onion sites faster.

Firefox does not implement h2c, so this would amount to building support for that into Tor Browser: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1418832
