I have Tor Browser from F-Droid on one of my testing phones and version 9.0.2 shows NoScript's version to be 11.0.4 after tapping on the options menu. However, this should be 11.0.9 as that is the version that shipped in 9.0.2

Okay, some more information: removing the 9.0.2 on my phone and installing a new version again gives me a NoScript 11.0.9. However, after what seems to be trying to update to NoScript 11.0.10 (the latest as of filing this ticket) fails and results in a "NoScript (0)" in the options menu (where "0" should be replaced by the actual version number of the installed NoScript). It seems the NoScript update fails (while it succeeds for me on Linux as I have a NoScript 11.0.10) there.

After restarting my mobile Tor Browser I can see a NoScript 11.0.9 again. I am not sure whether that accounts for my 11.0.4, though, as the extension updates should be a different thing than a Tor Browser update. But maybe it does. Either way, not being able to update NoScript versions anymore is pretty concerning, so raising prio.

(Oh, and I remember seeing the "0" as NoScript's version before restarting my Tor Browser and seeing the 11.0.4)

Tor Browser doesn't seem to be available on the F-Droid market as of the time of this writing.

However, I've already checked that it's available on the Guardian Project repositories, which can be enabled in the F-Droid application with default configurations. This is the source that's being talked about, right?
