New Release: Tor Browser 9.0.7
This release features important security updates to Tor.
This release updates Tor to 0.4.2.7 and NoScript to 11.0.19.
- Open about:config
- The "Value" column should show "false"
- Either: right-click and select "Toggle" such that it is now disabled or double-click on the row and it will be disabled.
In addition, HTTPS-Everywhere version 2020.3.16 supports a new mode of operation named EASE (Encrypt All Sites Eligible). Tor Browser users should not enable this feature. This new mode allows for adding per-site exceptions (whitelisting), however adding per-site exceptions may increase a user's uniqueness while using Tor Browser. When EASE mode is enabled, the whitelisting feature does not always work correctly, as well. We decided against downgrading the included https-everywhere version.
The full changelog since Tor Browser 9.0.6 is:
- All Platforms
- Bump NoScript to 11.0.19
- Bump Https-Everywhere to 2020.3.16
- Windows + OS X + Linux
- Bump Tor to 0.4.2.7
Update 2020-03-25: Added Https-Everywhere upgrade in ChangeLog and message about EASE mode.
