Comment (by gk):

 We could think about disabling that feature. One thing that makes me a bit
 reluctant to choose that path over the sanitizing approach is that we
 allow extensions to be installed in Tor Browser. Thus, users having custom
 extensions installed would benefit from a fast way to get those blocked in
 case Mozilla detects critical issues with them.
