Does Whonix local browser welcome page affect the fingerprint of Tor Browser?

Hi, I was wondering if replacing the start page file (file:///usr/share/doc/homepage/whonix-welcome-page/whonix.html) in the whonix-ws-16 template, has the torbrowser fingerprint affected? Considering I wrote the page myself and it’s definitely not knocking on any servers.

I don’t think that’s likely. It’s just a html file on the hard drive.

My soon upcoming answer in Can AppArmor worsen the fingerprint of Tor Browser? will also be somewhat related.

Yes, that’s very much by design.

What do you mean?
