 Android 9.0
 TorBrowser 9.0.1 (built with fennec 68.2)

 Tor Security Level = Safest
 No browser extensions/add-ons except DefaultTheme/HTTPS-
 NoScript 11.0.9 (Default/Trusted/Untrusted) have all possible boxes
 (NoScript mandates scripting for TrustedSited, thus I have none).

 I dont do javascript (if needed I use another browser).
 Three times now with these settings, I've had the "Unresponsive Script"
 Script: moz-extension://366bda57-ddd9-...pako-1.05/pako_inflate.min.js:865

 I might be the only one seeing this, as I'm on a low-resource device.
 I also saw no reference to the script on about:buildconfig

 Is this .js an internal file, & what's it used for?
 Also, is there a way to disable it?
