 #23554 is a duplicate.

 For posterity parts of arma's original description:
 Especially now that youtube has decided that svg is the way of the future,
  we should figure out a more usable way for people to retain most of their
  security while still loading youtube if they want.

  Options that come to mind:

  A) Build our own per-tag toggle interface for the svg blocker.

  B) Ask noscript to learn how to block svg, and then use its existing per-
  tab toggle interface to let you configure your svg hopes.

  C) Finish thinking about the "per-tab security slider settings" idea, and
  decide to move forward with it.

  (Idea came from discussions with Nima and Nicolas.)
 As I said in that ticket C) is essentially #21034 which is probably not
 going to fly.
