Comment (by cypherpunks):

 +1 For bundling uBlock Origin with Tor Browser, great software (thanks

 I'd suggest adding cached block lists to not have to download them on
 first run and to prevent users from having different block lists (to
 prevent fingerprinting).
 And disable the auto updating and only update when Tor Browser has a new
 uBlock Origin version or block lists.

 I already have uBlock Origin installed in my Tor Browser, because without
 it I think I'm less secure and potentially less anonymous with all those
 connections made to ad networks, big corporations. Since they have greater
 capability to correlate behavior etc.
