One of the goals of Tor Browser is that Tor Browser users should blend
together as much as possible. So if you run javascript here and here
and here but not there and there and there, then this unique set of
configuration choices acts like a cookie for recognizing you. That's
why there's a security slider, to disable functionality in chunks so
that we don't splinter the anonymity sets too much.
