 Replying to [comment:11 cypherpunks]:
 > OP here. Still using my ancient tor browser profile, originally via
 torbrowser-launcher but in recent months I've been using Tor Browser's
 updater and I currently appear to have the correct versions of Tor Button
 and Tor Launcher (looking at the last few releases' blog posts), and
 version N+1 of NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere (where N is the last version
 mentioned in a tor browser release blog post).
 > I guess this is fixed now? And those two extensions are auto-updating?

 Yes, it sounds like it.

 > I doubt this would be helpful, but if it is, I could try to repro this
 with 5.0.4->5.0.5 (the last versions where I observed this happen) if
 someone can tell me where to download old versions.

 Old versions are available here:

 I am not sure it is worthwhile to try to reproduce this using an older
 version though you are welcome to try.

 > I'll try to remember to check what happens again after the next update.

 Thanks. I am closing this ticket but please re-open or file a new ticket
 if the problem occurs again.
