#11450 closed defect (duplicate)

Can't tell which TBB I'm using!!!!

With all the upgrades necessary, and with some beta testing thrown in, it becomes a problem sometimes to remember which version of TBB is installed.

A visit to Help -> About TorBrowser should provide the detail, but it only says what FF ESR TBB is based on.

About Torbutton in no help either, it only indicates which Torbutton is installed.

How difficult would it be to start indicating <TBB version> based on <FF ESR version>?

Including a Tor logo as new default (or at least combined in there with the FF logo) would be pretty too :)

This will also help in reporting bugs!

Listing as defect because it really is information that should be available.

But you always start with an about:tor page showing you that you are using Tor, right? There should be a version string in the upper right corner of that page saying something like

Tor Browser

That helps a lot for future reference, I hadn't thought to refer to that. Thanks.

Still and all, I've always though it should be at the About TorBrowser place in Help, because that is where it is on what seems like most other programs, not just browsers.

Yeah, that is a valid enhancement request and a duplicate of #10403.
