    Huh. So Firefox will add a "Tor browser" mode?

    That's cool 'n' all. But I'm concerned that even more people will pwn themselves through clueless recklessness.

    I am guessing it will be like Brave Browsers built in private window with Tor feature.

    IMO It is not a good idea to browse the web with tor integrated firefox or brave if the anonymity is important to you. Will Super private browsing mode disable java script? You even shouldn't use Tor browser with js enabled. You should leave window as it is, don't play with its size. This way, they can't know your screen resolution, effective screen resolution, how many cpu core your pc has etc... I think they can also see what your DNS is.
