Everything works well, apart from the initial connection to
https://panopticlick.eff.org. The result is a warning page saying that
the connection is untrusted (error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer) and
there is no way to proceed. Toggling
noscript.alwaysBlockUntrustedContent from true to false fixes the
problem, and then after toggling back to true the problem does *not*
reoccur when restarted. It is only the first load after extraction
which is the issue. I don't recall this happening before. Maybe a
change in NoScript? (The root cause appears to be that the intermediate
chain isn't being pushed from the server.)

On the plus side, the result from Panopticlick is very good!
