 Blocked <media>: 1/1! But, hey, it's a clean 8.0a10! Do you initialize
 NoScript properly?

 Safest mode! Why didn't you mention it in your steps? SVG and downloadable
 fonts blocking is able to destroy content pages!

 menus don't open anymore.
 or are not so fast to open.
 > The extension menus not opening anymore, however, is independent from
 NoScript. It happens as well with it removed from Tor Browser. So, my
 current theory is that there is an underlying bug that is causing to break
 NoScript (and the HTTPS-E and potentially other (Web)Extensions) in a way
 that the reload cycle happens.
 Debugging is better with HTTPS-E disabled.
