    Voted to close this as primarily opinion based, there are no good answers yet but they have been asked. The functionality is still in Tor Browser but in at least some circumstances it will definitely harm anonymity. There is an open ticket for reviewing this at #10368 and an example of it breaking anonymity at #7188. – cacahuatl Nov 18 '16 at 9:32
  • Ah, excellent. Thank you for pointing me to those tickets! – Tyson Nov 18 '16 at 10:21
  • It's worth noting that you can select what you want synced. Ticket #10368 only applies if you sync preferences, but you can choose to only sync bookmarks if that's what you want. – SuperSluether Nov 18 '16 at 16:23
