I have RP installed beside NoScript, but without Torbutton.
It coexists very well with NoScript, you can allow/disallow all requests
to external "base domains", "full domains" and "full addresses", but
Scripts etc. from such domains and adresses are only allowed/disallowed
with the additional actions & functions from NoScript. The author says,
that he sees RP as an addition to NoScript. The context menu / handling
 is like NoScript or FoxyProxy. No blacklists so far and the whitelists
are static - you cannot edit the entries or use wildcards /RegEx
(requested and added to his list of planned features). Perhaps RP's
functions could or will be incorporated in things like NoScript,
Torbutton...don't know.

I have written a short German-language review in
but you can follow
