Bookmarks cannot be fingerprinted directly. But visited links, likely to often be from your bookmarks, and during your session as Tor Browser does not retain history, used to be an attack vector (and still is to a small degree)
First RFP (privacy.resistFingerprinting) has timing mitigations which severely hamper side-channels attacks to determine redraws, and even without RFP, Firefox upstream has made it really hard for websites to detect visited links: you can read more here - https://github.com/arkenfox/user.js/blob/662eddbc2124d9d09774da7d5bc385f45c287c0d/user.js#L378-L388
favicons themselves are meant to be isolated by first party (meaning each site would have to download it’s own copy) but this may be one of those things left to do/check (I know there were a couple of “minor” loose ends with FPI: first party isolation). However, RFP’s timing mitigations make this side-channel attack much harder.
You can read how this attack works here -
https://github.com/jonasstrehle/supercookie - ignore the browser results. There is a bugzilla -
But here’s the kicker: regardless of RFP timing mitigations, regardless of FPI/partitioning - there’s another bugzilla - 1618257 - Firefox fails to load favicon from HTTP cache : Firefox fails to load favicon from HTTP cache - which seems to suggest that Firefox, because of a bug, is immune.
tl;dr: favicons - don’t worry about it
As for theming and toolbars, the answer since TB11, is no. Previously issues like theme density could affect the inner window startup size, and without letterboxing, this would cause entropy (fingerprint wise you would stand out), but since the Proton redesign this no longer happens, and letterboxing also mitigates any new window sizes. And nothing can read your theme colors etc: e.g. custom, system, dark, light
What you’re talking about are the myriad things that can affect measurements: such as system scaling,
layout.css.devPixelsPerPx, devicePixelRatio, DPI, and zooming. Zoom is reset to 100% per site and tab, and new windows seems to handle all the above just fine. A new window size is only checked once, on creation. But there is a bug where the new window doesn’t take the letterbox borders into account - you can read it here - Letterboxing since 32220 affected by layout.css.devPixelsPerPx (#40081) · Issues · The Tor Project / Applications / Tor Browser · GitLab (hey that’s me) - it eats 2 pixels width and 1 pixel height, and the letterboxing doesn’t re-trigger (it needs a resize event), so you end up at e.g. 998 width by 999 height
Hope all that answers your questions
