Yeah, this isn't surprising -- Tor Browser gets built with the date of Jan 1 2000, so everybody has the same date on disk to start.

Is there a bug here? Anything to fix? Or should we close this ticket as "yes, we know, that's how it works"?

I think we should try to get this solved as an enhancement. But we can do so while working on #11506. So, duping this over to that bug.
