The Tor Browser is not only a Firefox with some safe settings. The Tor Project maintains many patches which enhance the privacy, but which Mozilla doesn't include in their software. So you won't be able to have an own browser similar to Tor Browser just by changing settings and using plugins.

One major feature of the Tor browser is that it (mostly) avoids browser fingerprinting. By default they all have the same fonts, screen-size, supported extensions ect. With other browser you can often uniquely identify them, see https://panopticlick.eff.org/ for a demonstration. The fingerprint can then allow that user to be tracked, both when using Tor and ...

TL;TR: these are not problems of the database. Maybe you are using a wrong architecture for your hidden service. And regarding the additional information after the edit of the question see at the end of this answer. What SQL database software should I use for the best security on my site?

There is no way to do it with "external" tools. Because the information about the circuits is kept within Tor. However you can utilise Tor's control protocol. This means you can connect to your Tor client and extract information out of your client. So sending GETINFO circuit-status prints out information to your current circuit(s). Usually Tor opens several ...

TL;DR: "Tor Browser plus being careful and ready" should be completely equivalent to "Safepay through BitDefender WiFi Premium protection". In your scenario, both are per se equally secure. The data being sent on the air is encrypted, so connections to HTTPS sites without either Tor or BitDefender, and connections to plain HTTP sites with either of them, ...

The sequence to check-up is just exactly the same as if you were browsing from unsafe place, like public open wifi : full system scan, log checking, anti-malware tools risen to the maximum protection level. Tor/darknet is just a network, no darknet-specific problems there so far : you can leak your data with the same result as in clearnet/internet.

Tor should have noscript installed. You simply click on the NoScript extension and click disable javascript on all sites. Unfortunately, once you've done something on the internet you can't change it. You can't go back and do it again differently, just like you can't in real life. Consider refraining from doing things you might later regret, especially if ...

If you've always used that Facebook account through Tor, and never through your normal connection, and the Facebook account is for an anonymous identity rather than your real identity and you never make any references using your real identity to your alter ego and vice versa, and you never login, then using Facebook over Tor does not necessarily compromise ...
