And you install only software more scrutinized than the Tor Browser (whose code is under the lens of practically all the security experts of all stripes all the time, including of course NoScript)?
Now that you've educated me on the dangers of 5x and the timely arrival of FF57 and the ability to actually make sure no extension can, I want both. I will of course wait and see if there's a way for NS to be updated to allow this, if not I'll just look elsewhere. Nothing more dramatic than that. But thank you for your reply, it was very informative in several ways.
