Comment (by Crissy2):

 > "fail safe" is better than "fail dangerous"

 But what mean fail safe and fail dangerous? It is `double epic_fail[]`!

 if certs are disabled, the add-on can't be checked... (security fail!)
 If certs are enabled and add-on becomes invalid, NoScript is disabled and
 additional user data is transmitted. Disabling JS also is not a full
 solution (`javascript.enable`). <MEDIA>, ForeShadow, Spectree and Meltdown
 can be used here (security fail).

 Only one correct long term solution is: **we must have our version of
 NoScript fingerprinted by TorProject!**

 It looks like biggest TorBrowser fail.
