Description

So far, while every Tor Browser release announcement points out known bugs specific to the most recent version, there's no documentation of preexisting issues that are not patched yet, and thus still affect current Tor Browser releases.

A summary of the most relevant ones would help users to keep track of those, and, if needed, adjust their set up/browsing behavior accordingly.

Furthermore, in case there are known ways to circumvent or mitigate a specific bug, the corresponding workaround could be shared as well.

To clarify what I mean: Tails' website is a fine example of how this could be implemented, their release announcement links to: https://tails.boum.org/support/known_issues/index.en.html

Not sure if appropriate (bear with me), but in the event that there's any interest on your end to implement my suggestion on https://tb-manual.torproject.org/known-issues/ (?), I'd be happy to offer my help to make this happen and work out an initial draft for review.

Thank you for offering to help out, we would really appreciate it if you could implement this if you are still able to.

The best way to do so would be to open a PR on https://github.com/torproject/manual

The Tor Browser website uses lektor: https://www.getlektor.com/ and you can find out some details on how you can get started using lektor here: https://dip.torproject.org/web/tpo/wikis/Compiling-a-local-version-of-the-website

Otherwise let us know if there is any other way we can help you get started. You can also find us on #tor-www on irc (irc.oftc.net)
