Users cannot easily change Tor Identity due to removal/modification of the onion button. Changing Tor Identity is a necessary security precaution in certain use cases. Modification should be made to reincorporate this important feature.

First of all, users can still access the New Identity functionality e.g. with Ctrl+Shift+u. The menuitem moved into the hamburger and the File menu.

But, yes, I agree, we should not have removed it until we have a solid story to tell as to where it moved. #27663 adds it again for the time being until we have our security controls redesigned. (Duplicate of #27663)
