You are right. The basic options of TorBrowser must meet the needs of very low-level-skilled user of tor.

What if the drop down menu text has a warning like
– this setting affect ALL tabs and running windows

Basically each user has to learn that information only once so the first time they use this drop down they must “qualify” (accept the above rule) or something.

On Android 8.1 custom pluggable transports dont work at all, only the built - in ones work.
I can only connect to normal custom bridges.
It stucks at 10%, tls handshake cannot be completed for some reason.
I have the same problem even if I connect first to a VPN and then to TOR.
I dont have that problem if I use TOR from Linux in the same router.
Also I dont use any firewall on my android and the device is not rooted.

It would be very helpful if an option to request dekstop site by default existed on android.
Enabling dekstop site reduces fingerprinting with javascript disabled.

On Android if I disable cookies the are still enabled; I have to enable and re-disable them in order to be disabled every time I open Tor Browser.

Cookies are automatically cleaned when selecting new identity, or restarting the browser. But disabling cookies completely will make your fingerprint different from most people, so it is not a good idea.

In one tab, https:// www . sammobile. com/samsung gives:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www . sammobile . com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

but it opens in another tab!
