Fingerprint ID does not change after each reset (tried incognito and manual clearing) when tested in fingerprintjs.com/demo. Testing the fingerprint on panopticlick shows that Hash of canvas fingerprint and AudioContext fingerprint results are “randomized by first party domain”, while for Hash of WebGL fingerprint I get a constant/unchanging hash number (Might be related).
Steps to Reproduce
  1. Install fresh brave nightly.
  2. Change shield fingerprint protection to block all.
  3. Open private tab
  4. Go to fingerprintjs.com/demo
  5. Close and repeat (minus step 1).
Actual result:
Expected result:

Fingerprint ID to be different on every test in fingerprintjs.com/demo.
Reproduces how often:
Every time.
