Restore NoScript control widget icon to the Tor Browser toolbar
In Tor Browser 8.5, the NoScript control widget icon that previously (in 8.0.9) was in the toolbar has disappeared.
It can manually be re-added by right-clicking the toolbar, selecting "Customize..." and dragging the NoScript icon back to the toolbar.
Even in "Standard" security mode, many websites break without fiddling with permissions in the NoScript widget. In "Safest" security mode, nearly all websites break without (sometimes substantial) fiddling with permissions in the NoScript widget.
Why this is a problem:
The user story for re-enabling the NoScript widget in the toolbar is so obscure that it is unlikely more than, say, 10% of the user base will understand how to do so.
What's more, without a big red icon to click, many users will not understand why a website breaks, and will simply abandon Tor Browser; they won't understand that they should fiddle with the toolbar and add the NoScript widget so they can fiddle with script permissions.
Finally, some users who previously used "Safest" security mode will not understand why their old flow is broken, and will resort to browsing on "Standard" mode, reducing the overall practical level of security.
Call to action:
The NoScript widget icon should be re-added to the Tor Browser toolbar by default.
I would also appreciate a pointer to the list archives or other documentation of how this change came to be in the first place.
