Damn, you are right, got one script that doesn't work with ViolentMonkey.
So that means I have the choice of Violentmonkey + not all scripts working, Tampermonkey and CSP not working or Tampermonkey and Anti-Adblocker Script disabled. Took the latter (until the Firefox CSP issue is fixed).
BTW, no need to delete the cache, but shift-reload is needed on html5test for real results.

The new 'throbber - tab loading indicator' is rather small and almost impossible to see IMO.

It's something new, I don't mind.
Worse thing will be part 2 - Show a burst across the tab when a page has finished loading. I don't like it at all, and don't know which "modern guidelines" is this thing following.
