top Tor Executive Director Hints At Firefox Integration
IIRC their argument was something along the lines of very few people were actually completely disabling JS, and a lot of them later complained that the internet wasn't working because they disabled JS. Also, NoScript is a very popular addon, which gives control over what scripts are actually allowed to run. So they switched JS back on for everyone without telling anyone and moved the option to about:config.
Their argument made sense, people who want to control JS were already using NoScript, and the web is getting more and more unusable with no JS. The only problem I had was the re-enabled JS and didn't actually tell the end user they did it, although I think someone who intentionally disabled it would realize it very quickly.
