Ship TBB-Firefox as a separately downloadable package
I and other Tor users will want to use Tor without Polipo, without using a Tor Browser Bundle. There are several reasons to want to do this:
- to avoid having to install extensions in and configure a new TBB every time a new version is released;
- to avoid having to wait for another Tor client to start before running a web browser;
- to make it easier to browse through a custom Tor compiled from Git.
I'm sure there are other good reasons for this that I haven't thought of.
We need to provide our patched versions of Firefox as separately downloadable binary packages, particularly for Windows (when we start building a patched Firefox on Windows) and MacOS, because building Firefox is much harder on those OSes than on Linux.
