#32789 new defect

Javascript can NOT be disabled

Reported by: cypherpunks Owned by: tbb-team
Priority: Very High Milestone:
Component: Applications/Tor Browser Version:
Severity: Major Keywords: javascript disable pako inflate
Cc: Actual Points:
Parent ID: Points:
Reviewer: Sponsor:


Android 9.0
TorBrowser 9.0.1 (built with fennec 68.2)

Tor Security Level = Safest
No browser extensions/add-ons except DefaultTheme/HTTPS-Everywhere/NoScript.
NoScript 11.0.9 (Default/Trusted/Untrusted) have all possible boxes unchecked.
(NoScript mandates scripting for TrustedSited, thus I have none).

I dont do javascript (if needed I use another browser).
Three times now with these settings, I've had the "Unresponsive Script" prompt.
Script: moz-extension://366bda57-ddd9-...pako-1.05/pako_inflate.min.js:865

I might be the only one seeing this, as I'm on a low-resource device.
I also saw no reference to the script on about:buildconfig

Is this .js an internal file, & what's it used for?
Also, is there a way to disable it?

Guess I'll post my own answers:

pako_inflate.min.js belongs to the HTTPS-Everywhere extension.

I chose to disable it (versus increasing dom.max_script_run_time).
