Hello, I made a short video about my current browser configuration. The Tor Browser, a Firefox fork with privacy configuration and settings, is used. But don't worry. I will show in the tutorial how to disable routing over the TOR network so that you can use your own VPN.

0:00 - 0:34 - Downloading the Tor browser and starting it (Tor Browser)
0:35 - 1:07 - Disabling the routing over the TOR network
network.proxy.socks_remote_dns : false
extensions.torlauncher.start_tor : false
1:08 - 3:41 - Installing add-ons
3:42 - 5:37 - Testing the browser configuration

These settings are actually not paranoid, as much more is possible. Nevertheless, 1% of the pages could no longer work.
You can also disable JavaScript or control it with the addon NoScript. I didn't do that because it's very complicated. But those who are very concerned about security should do so as a last consequence.
I hope the tutorial is understandable. If you have any questions, please ask.
