I guess that's mainly due to some snakeoil interfering with Tor Browser.
:( Do we have some feedback channel to those (or essentially any) users
to get back to them suggestions we have?

Could we get a mapping from the entries we have in support portal/FAQs
to specific items in the spreadsheet? While looking over it it occurred
to me that we already have a bunch of entries covering items in it.
Doing this mapping would give us some hint on where we are failing with
reaching our users with that information (and we could start thinking
about how to fix that).

Additionally, what is the best way to amend the report with information
we as developers have? E.g. the facebook opening issue might be #25735
(which should be fixed in the upcoming alpha release) and "noscript is
not working on windows in tor browser-alpha" is #26506.
