 > > Yes, please. I assumed you were using Linux. If you extract the Tor
 Browser and change into the tor-browser_LOCALE directory, starting Tor
 Browser with `./start-tor-browser.desktop --log` should give you a `tor-
 browser.log` file in the same directory. If you set the Torbutton logging
 to level 3 as described you should see the circuit isolation at work.

 Ah, okay. After setting the log level to 3 you should be able to see the
 log in the browser console as well. If you need to increase the log lines
 available `devtools.hud.loglimit.console` is your friend.

 View Page Info, clicking the lock or globe in the URL-bar >> more

 media tab there.

 Thanks, that is #18030.
