Re: TBBundle, Browser javascript

I have found that when I disable javascript in Firefox, it automatically
gets enabled on restart. I'm not sure if this it because of TorButton,
but I wouldn't be surprised. On another note, I've heard that using both
NoScript and TorButton can be dangerous, but I don't know any specifics.
