There was another thread, somewhere (here, mozillazine, dslreports ?) mentioning similar.

One of the recent changes in NoScript had to do with XSS issues at Youtube, so maybe a result of that?

Code: Select all

v 2.6.8rc1

It might be that they're using a 3rd party widget now to render the comments, which is very likely much slower.
