Comment in start-tor-messenger advises to modify about:config preferences that do not exist in instantbird
There is a comment in the start-tor-messenger bash script telling what to do for “Using a system-installed Tor process with Tor Messenger”. As the whole file is more or less a copy of start-tor-browser, the list of about:config values contains torbutton preferences which exist in firefox but not in instantbird.
Only 6 out of 16 values are listed in instantbird’s about:config. Should the user ignore the rest or create new entries?
The whole issue only affects “sophisticated users”, like in wiki:org/meetings/2015SummerDevMeeting/TorProcessShare
