Comment (by bugzilla):

 As you pay much attention to this issue (dunno why), here are some
 thoughts on the topic:
 What really should be done is a warning about that some component has
 failed to initialize.
 As reports about NoScript started to appear more often, last updates of
 NoScript could be the reason. The scenario is: user starts TBB and
 NoScript prepares to update, say .13 to .14; then TBB finds its new
 version and prepares to update; user restarts TBB and Check Add-on for
 Compatibility is invoked by NoScript update, but there is no Tor
 connection ready to check the signature (plus some bugs with early network
 connections might exist), so initialization fails. (The same is for
 HTTPSE) Firefox users are not affected, because of existed connection or
 no bugs with handling of it.
