[RESOLVED] NS not working on Tor

Post by lenderpho » Sat Nov 20, 2021 6:59 pm

I have the latest install of Tor but when I added the extension it was not blocking JS. I also have these oddly worded headings when I go to settings: _MSG_OptionsLong_ and _MSG_Import_

Is it also normal for NS not to appear in the list of add ons in the mobile Tor browser? Usually I can go to the three dots, click on add ons, and see all addons there, but I can only find it by going to settings and then add ons.

Tor for Android? Which version?
The stable one (10.5.10) should have NoScript pre-installed. Also, you won't be able to permanently change any permission unless you check the "Override Tor Browser's Security Level preset" first.
Can I see some screenshots?

Tor for Android.
10.5.10 (91.2.0-Release) (Build #2015808987)

This is what settings look like.

Do you have any suggestions on what I should?

I figured it out. My only guess was that the tor version (arm) I downloaded wasn't for my phone. I got it from the guardian repo. I went to tor's website and got the aarch64 version and now the settings don't look weird and NS is blocking JS.

Thank you for letting us know. I was in the dark (web? ;) ) because everything worked for me.
