Description

See #9031#note-19. This affects the Unsafe Browser, and in particular our automated test suite, but we have workarounds, see #9305, #9306. Let's at least ask the Tor Browser people if they have an idea what's going on.

If we fix this, we may want to consider reverting eb3e901b15064291589899c17faaa77fe7e28968 that changed our test suite to use about:support instead (which is a bit more complex). That is, if #9306's test/9306-fix-unsafe-browser-addons-check branch gets merged.

  • Type of work changed from Communicate to Wait

Fixed upstream: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/15984

If we fix this, we may want to consider reverting eb3e901b15064291589899c17faaa77fe7e28968 that changed our test suite to use about:support instead (which is a bit more complex).

So let's do this (to reduce the code complexity, and increase test suite robustness) once a suitable Tor Browser build is available.

I have confirmed it works in Tails 1.4.1 with Tor Browser 4.5.3. Closing.

This has been done in #8548's branch.
