The Tor Browser developers have designed the Tor Browser to not leak your identity in its default configuration, and you should not need to change any settings. If there are features that can reveal your IP address with Tor's default settings, you should inform the developers. The option media.peerconnection.enabled that you mentioned is already disabled in ...

These types of attacks aren't possible in Tor because of Tor's ntor handshake and Tor's authenticated directory documents generated by the directory authorities. Tor clients download a trusted (and signed) list of all relays generated by Tor's directory authorities. This list of relays is part of the network consensus document. Each relay in this list also ...

There is no way to know that. If they were like Facebook and had a signed certificate, you can at least say, "that looks legit" even though they could still be run or have a backdoor for law enforcement. Since there isn't even that, anything you say that can very well be sent directly to law enforcement and you have no way to know and there's no way to find ...

Your client may also connect to directory caches, and theoretically the directory authorities (but I'm not sure that the code currently does this). It might be better to whitelist all Tor relays rather than just guards. You will also need to re-download and update your rules periodically as the Tor network has high relay churn (your guard set should remain ...

If you can get in trouble just by using tor, don't do it. ISP's can only see that you are using tor and nothing else, however ISP's can perform an end-to-end confirmation attack on you if they can find patterns in both ends of the communication channel (you and the site). Meaning that if they have access to the server you are trying to connect, you can get ...

As far as I understand it, watching videos over TOR, unless maybe it's on an ".onion" service, is not recommended because it puts a lot of load on the exit nodes. Even when it's hosted on an ".onion" service, it puts an unnecessary load on the relays run by volunteers. It's less damaging than using TOR to watch a clearweb video, but it still slows down ...

Your ISP knows 1 thing: that you are using Tor. They don't know where you go or what you do. If you use a bridge, they don't even know that you are using Tor. This is to help people in countries where using Tor is a crime.
