Description

Using the "New Identity" button in the current version of Tor Browser and Tails takes several seconds. That is annoying and harmful for usability. It takes significantly longer than in older versions of Tor Browser.

What can you do to improve this?

Is this bug tracker still being monitored and supported? Seven weeks and no reaction from the developers seem to indicate that this bug tracker has become useless. Sad.

Well, it might be good to specify what "too long" means. Knowing the operating system used and the problematic Tor Browser version and the version that last worked (older ones are at https://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/torbrowser/) are most helpful as well. Without that it is not really possible to act on this bug (which is the sole cause of silence in this case) as nobody from the dev team seems to be able to reproduce the problem.
