 1. Shut down Tor
 2. Edit torrc file at c:\Program Files (x86)\Tor
 Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\torrc so that it has the line:

 TrackHostExits .

 According to docs, this should mean to use the same exit node for all

 3. Launch Tor, and open any two websites - let's say
 https://duckduckgo.com/ and https://www.nasa.gov/
 4. Note that the exit node for each website may differ.  If not
 reproducing, try using the IP addresses rather than URLs.

 Why is this a problem?  Some sites will generate a link that only works
 from the same IP as the original page.  (In my case, one link is an IP
 that cannot be resolved to a URL, so using a URL isn't an option.)

 Version: Tor 7.5 (The versions in the picker are massively out of date -
 not a good sign.)
