Torbutton, when enabled, protects you from many different types of
threats to anonymity and security, even when javascript is turned on.  
See https://torbutton.torproject.org/ 
for more information on what exactly it does and does not do.

However, javascript is not required for either Torbutton or 
Tor Browser Bundle functionality, so you can turn javascript off
for additional security.
