There was a vulnerability in Tor Browser not long ago. After updates it was enabling javascript automatically without any warning whatsoever.

I want to find out whether it was intentional or not. Is a question asking whether it could have been intentional on-topic here?

If not:

  • is there a site (SE or otherwise) where such a question would be on topic?
  • can I ask or even pay someone to find out
  • is it possible to search it on my own? (what should I be looking for?)

My problem is I can't even find when the bug was fixed.

    I doubt that we could know if it was intentional, which means we would be speculating

You could use the Tor Stack Exchange site for questions specific to Tor. While asking whether or not a certain design change in Tor was intentional is off-topic for this site, it would be fine on the Tor site.

  • Tor was my initial thought but seeing 0 comments and answers in a related question i doubt anyone would know.

  • @Fermiparadox You could try to ask on the mailing list or on IRC.
