Tor Browser in Whonix blocks JavaScript (only when started for the first time) and in DispVMs


#1

Hi,

this is actually supposed to be a bugreport but I’m still waiting for my phabricator account to be approved.

Qubes R4.0
whonix-ws-14

Setup guide followed to creat DispVMs:

The issue also occurs on non-dispvms (but only on the first start), on DispVM it happens with every start since every start is the first start…

This is how tor browser looks like when the issue occurs (JavaScript is blocked):

w-tb-not-ok

the settings look like this by default (not manually changed):

removed since new users can only post one image per post…

when visiting relay search:

removed since new users can only post one image per post…

this is how it looks like when it is ok:

removed since new users can only post one image per post…
should look like:

removed since new users can only post one image per post…

Im not understanding what the problem. Is NoScript not blocking scripts when it should? What is the expected behavior vs. Actual behavior ?

Whonix does not alter NoScipt in Tor Browser so if this is a bug it should be reported to Tor project.
