Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Locking what you have mentioned would be great considering the amount of
 times well intentioned but uninformed people install "VPN" addons on the
 Tor Browser and end up screwing up their anonymity and proxy settings as
 I've seen on irc.

 > We could consider locking FPI and Fingerprinting settings, but I'm not
 sure those would be appropriate to lock.

 The only disadvantage is that it may make it more difficult to setup a
 clearnet Tor Browser.
