Comment (by cypherpunks):

 I've already asked for help at Tor, but they don't care so I am asking

 Tor Browser is including NoScript, your addon, and it's breaking other
 add-on's functionality.

 To reproduce:
 1. Download latest Tor Browser from the Tor project(7.5).
 2. Go to https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/24943 and
 download a ZIP file in description.
 3. Extract the zip.
 4. In Tor browser, open about:addon, Gear, Debug add-on.
 5. "Load temporary add-on", select "local/manifest.json" to load this test
 6. Try to save something. When you click Save, it clear everything.

 The problem will go away if you disable NoScript in Tor Browser.
 Can you do something about this? Other addons on AMO which use
 browser.storage.local is suffering by this.
