A lot of sites are incredibly "broken" if javascript is disabled.  NoScript would be one example of a "privacy plugin" that would thus cause a problem if enabled for some sites.  It's why I'm curious as to what the plugin was that you were using.  I haven't been using ixquick for very long, and still don't use it regularly.  It's one I started messing with scroogle was not always accessible to me for whatever reasons.  Having browsed the site with Mozilla Firefox + Noscript (scripting disabled) + Ghostery + AdBlock Plus + HTTPS Everywhere, + Cookies disabled, in addition to browsing the site via the Tor Browser Bundle + Noscript (scripting disabled) + HTTPS Everywhere + Cookies disabaled, and never having run into the message you describe, I'm curious to reproduce it.
