Comment (by jhibbard):

 I attempted to down-grade to 8.07. Didn't work.

 1. Delete entire sub-directory for TORBrowser 8.08
 2. Install 8.07
 3. Turn off all updates
 4. NoScript seems to be fine for ~1 hour. At this point, a banner appears
 saying that some addons are disabled. If you delete NoScript, reboot
 firefox and attempt to re-install NoScript, you get an error message
 saying the download is corrupt.

 Please note that mozilla.org has delivered a patch via enabling studies.
 This allows a user to remove all add-ons, reboot firefox and then re-
 install addons. I'm not seeing how this works with TORBrowser.
