I don't know if that one NS option was changed *by the addon* (NS) 
included IN the TBB update, or changed as part of the TBB update process.
Looking at the BU of NS settings just before the TBB 6.08 update, it's 
clear I had "Allow https scripts globally" disabled.

And I definitely didn't recently change that option manually- no reason to.
But right after updating TBB 6.08 & noticed no scripts blocked on https 
sites, I did a NS settings BU before uninstalling NS.  That settings BU 
showed the pref was enabled.

So I don't know how else it got changed, except by NS or TBB update process.
Since the default NS setting for this is disabled, not sure  how. The 
TBB "extension-overrides.js" file doesn't include this pref to override 
NS default.
