As a user on our blog comments (https://blog.torproject.org/comment/279193#comment-279193): visiting https://www.sravni.ru/kredity/na-1000000-rublej/ makes Tor Browser fully unusable as long as one has scripts enabled.

It turns out that disabling NoScript "solves" that. FWIW, that's not only a Tor Browser problem but is reproducible with a vanilla Firefox + NoScript on Linux as well (provided one allows the scripts embedded in this website)
