Comment (by legind):

 The suggestion in
 https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/20195#comment:13 has been
 implemented in https://github.com/EFForg/https-everywhere/pull/7342:

 > This resolves the issue in
 https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/20195 where the SSL
 Observatory proxy checking code and submissions were bypassing domain
 isolation. That code was a relic from the !TorButton days.
 > Now, check.torproject.org is no longer accessed when we're using Tor
 Browser, we assume successful Tor access. In this case, we let TB
 transparently proxy for us, instead of accessing the Tor Browser proxy
 settings directly.

 This can be tested within HTTPS Everywhere by running:

 test/tor-browser.sh PATH_TO_TOR_ARCHIVE

 I'll close this once the fix is merged on our side.
