 > I don't want to go OT, but HWA being turned on is an issue. We have a
 PoC that uses timing to get history leaks, and HWA=off is the only thing
 that makes it fail.

 I am mostly confused about your comment but if there is an issue with
 Hardware acceleration turned on for an unmodified Tor Browser, please open
 a ticket detailing what the problem is so we can think about fixing it.
