 Replying to [comment:2 sysrqb]:
 > You are running Tor Browser on Windows, and the Javascript code
 (navigator.userAgent) is showing an "X11; Linux x86_64" user agent string?

 Maybe running on Linux, but setting a Windows useragent with
 `general.useragent.override`? The pref `general.useragent.override` is
 ignored when `privacy.resistFingerprinting` is set, since #26146. And we
 have #28290 for the headers not matching the javascript useragent, so I'm
 closing this ticket as a duplicate. Please reopen if that is a different
