If you use bookmarks in the Tor Browser such as RSS feeds is it possible to deanonymize yourself if you have the same RSS feeds in a non-tor browser. I notice that the tor browser loads information from all the feeds when I click on the folder containing the feeds in the onion circuits.

Ran the update: now it won't load. If I set it for China, it opens in firefox, but when I type, nothing...blocked?

In about:config "false" value need to be set as default in next version for:

browser.taskbar.lists.frequent.enabled
browser.taskbar.lists.enabled

These two settings are actually allowing anyone who has access on PC where Tor is installed to run it, and with simple right click on taskbar icon of Tor Browser Bundle to see frequently visited web sites via Tor which actually acts as some kind of “View History” what definitely is flaw from privacy point of view.

Is it possible to choose the first guard connection in TOR? Since sites have the capability to know all the exit nodes of Tor it would be a good feature to choose the first entry point into Tor circuit.
