The closure size impact seems justifiable for a GUI application IMHO. What do you think @alyssais? :)

It appears this version has a bug. When the Tor Browser starts, some add-ons might be disabled, including NoScript. To replicate: set the security level to "Safest" (which disables Javascript) then check https://enable-javascript.com/ which says whether Javascript is enabled.
Try this with both the version before and after enabling multimedia.
This needs to be investigated before merging. It might even be a problem upstream.

Actually, it seems to have been introduced in 9.0.6, not this pull request #83096
That means this pull request is still ready to merge.
