There are good hints at the TOR homepage, not only regarding TOR usage.
Regarding TOR, it could be rendered useless, just by another app, that
does phone home, at the same time you run a TOR session, but apart from
that, even if you don't use TOR, then e.g. even maximising the window of
your browser could be bad, since it could provide the missing link to
identify you. The reason that some browsers don't care that hard
about cookies is, that cookies aren't that critical, compared to all
the other issues and sometimes cookies are required, for things you
anyway give away, such as the "add to cart" option.
