 but all previous versions of tor browser worked perfectly with twitter in
 High Security Level when twitter.com was allowed in NoScript.
 but recently, several days ago after logging in twitter I see the page has
 not JavaScript loaded. It seems first to me, updating tor to 7.0.8 caused
 the problem but now after checking some older versions I wonder that the
 problem is repeating there.
 Is it possible a probable new code changing from twitter.com has been
 conflicted with some tor operations?
 and could you please check twitter account with a High Security Leveled
 tor browser, for double check of this issue?
