Hash of WebGL fingerprint on this test always returns the same unique value to me on the same system. I have restarted the browser, installed a fresh Tor Browser, results are the same.

Panopticlick is not a good platform for doing this kind of tests as it is strongly biased both with respect to older browsers it has seen and to non-Tor Browser browsers. What we aim is to reduce the user difference *just within* the Tor Browser group, which Panopticlick can't measure.
