Tor Browser 7.0.4 is released
This release features important security updates to Firefox.
A lot of Tor Browser components have been updated in this release. Apart from the usual Firefox update (to 52.3.0esr) we include a new Tor stable release (0.3.0.10) + an updated HTTPS-Everywhere (5.2.21) and NoScript (188.8.131.52).
In this new release we continue to fix regressions that happened due to the transition to Firefox 52. Most notably, we avoid the scary warnings popping up when entering passwords on .onion sites without a TLS certificate (bug 21321). Handling of our default start page (about:tor) has improved, too, so that using the searchbox on it is working again and it does no longer need enhanced privileges in order to function.

What system are you on asking for this so someone can tell you how to do it? An onion on the desktop is an attention seeking conversation starter. I replaced mine with a great big A in a circle and labeled it FU! ;)
When Tor browser bundle is closed no browser history is retained. If any expert is able to view all the files on your device it would be trivial to determine that you have Tor browser bundle installed, even if the name and icon is changed. Using bridges with pluggible transports can make it very difficult for local users to determine that your using tor. You can get bridges with pluggable transports at bridges.torproject.org
