You are running Tor Browser on Windows, and the Javascript code (navigator.userAgent) is showing an "X11; Linux x86_64" user agent string?

Replying to sysrqb:

You are running Tor Browser on Windows, and the Javascript code (navigator.userAgent) is showing an "X11; Linux x86_64" user agent string?

Maybe running on Linux, but setting a Windows useragent with general.useragent.override? The pref general.useragent.override is ignored when privacy.resistFingerprinting is set, since #26146. And we have #28290 for the headers not matching the javascript useragent, so I'm closing this ticket as a duplicate. Please reopen if that is a different issue.
