**Can I use the `--clearnet` switch in a torified VM?**
**Can I use the `--clearnet` switch in a Whonix-Workstation VM (`anon-whonix`)?**

This is strongly recommended against because using the `--clearnet` switch will break Tor Browser's per tab stream isolation.
VMs behind a `sys-whonix` are always routed through Tor, traffic would still be torified. However, this is strongly recommended against because using the `--clearnet` switch will break Tor Browser's per tab stream isolation.

**Can I use the `--clearnet` switch in a VM torified by something other than Whonix to avoid Tor over Tor?**

This is strongly recommended against because using the `--clearnet` switch will break Tor Browser's per tab stream isolation. A [complete implementation](https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor) compatible with Tor Browser's per tab stream isolation would be much better.

**Does the `--clearnet` switch alter any other SecBrowser behavior?**

No, the only changes to SecBrowser are to the preferences previously shown.

**Can I add my own custom preferences to change SecBrowser behavior?**

Yes, but this could degrade security and privacy. see: Normalizing SecBrowser behavior.

**I have an idea to improve SecBrowser's security in Qubes. Can is submit patch?**

_Most definitely!_ Patches are always welcome!
