What is Tor Browser?
"The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.
The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable)."

Are you aware of Panopticlick [eff.org]? People using Tor Browser can blend in with each other. Someone using Tor with another browser, custom-configured in the way you describe, is likely to stand out from the crowd. In other words, a bespoke configuration, even though hardened, may be more identifiable.
