Fingerprinting question for Mullvad Browser

Hi all, I know that changing settings of an installed extension makes the user more ‘fingerprintable’, but what about bookmarks and you place them in your browsers. Can they be used? Or is that also used for fingerprinting?

There is another thread about this, please use the search function and type " Mullvad Browser fingerprint"

Bookmarks are fine


It’s settings that would affect the webpage which would impact fingerprinting. So if you change filter lists in uBlock Origin, that changes what gets loaded on the webpage and can therefore be detected by the webpage, for example.

The webpage can’t read your bookmarks though, so that would not make a difference.
