    11Why is this ticket still open 5 years after being reported, given an utterly sensible solution (snap reported desktop resolution to one of two values that will fit client window) has been proposed?

    3 Why is there not consensus that reporting a desktop resolution that no physical monitor has ever has is a serious flaw, resorting to a deeply suspect argument 'we only need tor browser bundle users to be indistinguisable from each other'. The proposed fix would maintain that ability, while simultaneously removing the ability for a few lines of javascript to pick out a tor browser user from a non tor browser user.

    55Seriously guys, it would take 5 minutes to patch this. Change getDesktopWidth() from { return window.width; } to { return window.width < 1920 && window.height < 1080 ? 1920 : 2880; } and getDesktopHeight() from { return window.height; } to { return window.width < 1920 && window.height < 1080 ? 1080 : 1800; }
