 I've remarked that Tor browser on-disk cache is actually set to the
 default, i.e. 1024 MB of storage on hard drive. Such an information could
 be actually used to leak information about which web pages were actually
 opened by the user. Setting this hard disk cache by default to zero would
 actually solve the issue, and displaying a warning if this setting is
 altered would also be fine.
