New Release: Tor Browser 9.5a9

Tor Browser 9.5a9 is now available from the Tor Browser Alpha download page and also from our distribution directory.
 
Note: This is an alpha release, an experimental version for users who want to help us test new features. For everyone else, we recommend downloading the latest stable release instead.
 
This release updates Tor to 0.4.3.3-alpha and NoScript to 11.0.21.
 
In addition, this release disables Javascript for the entire browser when the Safest security level is selected. This may be a breaking change for your workflow if you previously allowed Javascript on some sites using NoScript. While you are on “Safest” you may restore the previous behavior and allow Javascript by:
    • Open about:config
    • Search for: javascript.enabled
    • The “Value” column should show “false”
    • Either: right-click and select “Toggle” such that it is now disabled or double-click on the row and it will be disabled.
    We are taking this precaution until we are confident recent NoScript versions successfully block Javascript execution, by default, by working around a Firefox ESR vulnerability.
