    Fingerprinting is a common technique used predominantly by advertising agencies and marketing companies to track people on the Internet.

    Mozilla introduced the preference privacy.resistFingerprinting in Firefox 41 as part of the Tor Uplift project.

    The official Tor browser is based on Firefox ESR; Tor Uplift aims to introduce patches that the Tor development team makes to the Tor browser to Firefox. See our article on Tor Browser privacy changes coming to Firefox for additional information on Tor Uplift.

    These preferences are set to disabled by default usually as they may break things on the Internet.
