 Replying to [ticket:30567 cypherpunks]:
 > There is no way to re-enable the NoScript menu so that JavaScript could
 be enabled per tabulator. At least in the Linux version.

 We did not change any functionality here. Thus, you should be able to just
 drag the NoScript icon to the toolbar again (by customizing your toolbar)
 and then enjoy the usual NoScript options.

 > The design document about the new menu bar mentions, that it should be
 possible for the user to re-enable the NoScript icon manually, but it is
 > The NoScript configuration is only accessible via the AddOns Noscipt
 Preferences, but

 See, above you should be able to drag the icon back to your toolbar.

 >  (1) all changes there effect the whole session including reloading all
 tabs - which is a security risk if you do not inspect all tabs before
 doing so
 >  (2) in the Appearance tab there, it is only possible  to enable the
 NoScript context menu, which seems to be blocked in Tor Browser. No option
 to get the menu button back.

 Yes, that's a bug and something we failed to clean up, see: #29886.

 For what it is worth: the right fix is doing #30570 which should give you
 a way to have per-site security settings exposed in the browser UI. We
 hope to start working on that one soon but did not get to it for 8.5.
