 Replying to [comment:1 qbi]:

 all three cases I was able to log in to lang-8. So NoScript is not the
 problem alone.

 Yes, this matches what I have observed. I can log in to Lang-8 using
 Debian's version of Firefox ("Iceweasel") + NoScript.

 So the problem lies either with the interaction between Tor Browser and
 NoScript, or with the specific NoScript config shipped with Tor Browser.

 A temporary workaround for people who want to use Lang-8 via Tor Browser
 is to use a separate Tor Browser installation, with the NoScript extension
 disabled, only for logging into Lang-8, and to use one's normal,
 unmodified Tor Browser installation for everything else. Obviously this is
 not an ideal solution.
