 check Whonix compatibility?

 We do not have a packaged Tor Browser that includes these changes. You
 would need to build Torbutton from the bug14271-01 branch within
 ‚Äčhttps://git.torproject.org/user/brade/torbutton.git and build Tor
 Launcher from the bug14272-01 branch within
 https://git.torproject.org/user/brade/tor-launcher.git. But you may also
 want the patch from #19733 (it is not needed if the local Tor check is
 disabled within Torbutton).

 But it probably makes sense to wait until after these changes are merged
 into master so that you can use a nightly Tor Browser build.
